Summary: I wanted a portable dvd player largely for keeping my 3 year old occupied on long car trips and plane rides. I finally decided on the Panasonic L-S86 portable dvd player. I got it for $100 but it's now up to $169.
Summary: The features listed by the manufacturer doesn't list all of the features. If you buy two of these, the book says that the device can receive video. I connected the two together with a RCA female to female coupler turned on one with a dvd and then put the other into AUX display mode and they worked...
Summary: We just received this DVD player and brought it on vacation. It was very easy to use and the picture was great. It has two earphone plugs so that two of us were able to watch a movie at the same time. The audio was definately loud enough to hear over the airplane engine noise.
Summary: My last Panasonic DVD player lasted for six years...this one lasted for six months and to repair it, due to its particular type of warrtanty.. it would cost $102...it cost me $148 six months ago....how does that sound? No more Panasonic for me

Summary: Used this DVD one time when we first received it. After some playing around it worked OK. So we tossed the packaging and put it in a DVD bag. The next two times we used it it would not "read" the disk. Called Panasonic and they could not resolve the problem and told us to call the seller .
Summary: Serves its purpose. A small, portable DVD player for the kids to watch movies. The sound and picture are a bit better than what I expected from a player this size. Best part is the kids enjoy it. Initial quality seems good, but can not comment on long term quality, yet.
Summary: I've had this DVD player about 2 months. It does everything I need/wanted it to do. The other reviews I had read said the sound via it's speakers wasn't the best. I agree it's not bad just not very loud. I find with earphones/buds the sound quality is great. I can get more volume than I need.
Summary: We bought this for our 3 YO and he is tough on things. He has thrown this down on our driveway. Poured his juice all over it and after a little cleaning and drying out it just keeps on working. Great product. We tried a Sony and it died after a couple of hours with him.
Summary: I bought this hoping that I can play my DVD-Rs from Japan, but it doesn't. The Panasonic DVD player that I bought supported it, so I figured the portable ones do also, but I was wrong. Everything else is good, but this was the one feature I was looking for.
