Easy to fix HO 3 error plagues Panasonic DVD players

mkb, Amazon
25 December 2006
  • Summary: The LS90 is the third portable Panasonic DVD player I've owned (the LS5 and LS55 before this). I bought this bigger screen size although my LS55 is still going strong and I really like the LS90 which is good for kids due to 9" screen size, good picture, genuine 6+ hour battery life and decent speaker sound.

DVD-LS90 Portable by Panasonic

AmaniDi, Amazon
10 November 2006
  • Summary: My first experience with a Panasonic portable DVD player was with the LS-50, which I rented at an airport. I loved it, ended up buying a used one thru eBay. Should have bought it new and with a warranty! Got 1 year out of it, then the HO:3 message. Thinking to buy the LS-50 again, it is now more costly than the LS-90 which replaced it, so I went with the LS-90 after reading customer reviews. So far I have been very happy with it.

Very nicely built and easy to use, but screen could be better

  • Summary: The Panasonic DVD-LS90 portable DVD player is a very nicely made portable DVD player, unlike the other brands out there which you find at Best Buy, Circuit City, Walmart, etc: Initial, Mintek, Audiovox, Samsung, Shinco, ... which often look like they'll fall apart after you pick them up. The LS90 has a solid and confident build and nice styling, and is surprisingly lightweight for such a big-screen portable DVD player, even with the battery attached.

Great Features

Electronic Gadgetphile, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought the Panasonic LS90 based on the battery life, screen size and ability to play numerous formats. Great marks on all accounts and the tilt screen is superb for use on airlines where the seat pitch is thin and you want to have a reasonable eye distance to the screen. The unit is a breeze to use and very intuitive in its operation. The only negative would be the disappointing screen resolution which is OK but not as good as some of the others available.

Flawed, but the best high end portable dvd as of Aug '05

J. Katz, Amazon
12 August 2005
  • Summary: I wanted a 9-10 inch portable dvd. The best values I could find came down to the Pansonic LS90 and the Philips PET1000. I decided on the Panasonic for several reasons: (1) It had superior audio over the Philips ... I could hear nuances in the Incredibles like phones ringing in the background that I couldn't hear on the Philips. (2) The Panasonic operated more quietly, particularly when skipping through chapters.

Great little DVD player

John R. Yanusz, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this player primarily to watch DVDs while on flights and it certainly does the job well. The picture quality is excellent and the battery charge lasts long enough to view 2 movies. The battery is not a standard battery, however, and you will have to buy another expensive Panasonic battery if you want a spare but I haven't found this necessary yet.

Best one for the price

  • Summary: I spent several months of research before I decided on this one which had the best picture for the price. I saw a Philips that I really liked but it was too big (10" screen). I really liked the features of the 8.9" Toshiba but the off-angle viewing was horrible!!! This LS90 has some good features (6 hr battery, car adaptor and good off-angle viewing). The picture quality could be better. .

A good compromise with nice features

G. Nestor, Amazon
11 July 2005
  • Summary: I shopped eight weeks for a unit. Looked at the so called no-name units but was not sold on them. Really wanted to buy a Sony portable DVD but the price was too expensive. The Panasonic seemed to fit the bill. Nice features such as the six-hour play time. (This is a little deceiving because you have to turn the brightness and color down real low to get the full six hours.) But on a plane you probably can watch two full movies with this playing time.

Great features, Good picture, High price...

Robert, Amazon
24 June 2005
  • Summary: I've purchased this DVD player based on "online" reviews and hype, because it was a new player. So far I have been very pleased with its performance, especially in the battery department. On the other hand, I was a little less impressed by the overall picture quality. To say the least, the picture on this player is very good! It's when actual "text" is on the screen that its a little blocky. When I say "text" I'm referring to screen credits, etc.
