Summary: I thought I was purchasing a new dvd player and it was used. I was buying this as a Christmas present and now I can't give it to the person because it's used. Also, the battery won't charge. Had it charging for 3 days and it never charged. I'll just keep it as a back up to my portable dvd player.
Summary: I purchased this DVD player 7 years ago. It has been a work horse for me. I have taken it everywhere and it has never, ever failed me. The screen size is perfect for personal viewing and you can connect it to your flat screen TV and view your movies there.
Summary: I like to make (ahem) legal copies of my movies from DVD-9 to DVD-5 using the cheapest media I can find which can result in discs that some players can't handle very well. (choppy video, menus or subs don't display properly, etc.
Summary: Months after I purchased the player I recieved the dreaded HO3 error code. I fixed it per Panasonics specifications but got it again after the next play. However, even with the directions I have it won't work at all now.
Summary: This DVD player was well used in the ~13 months since purchase until suddenly "Error H03" was displayed on the screen and the player could not read the DVD. After looking into having it repaired, (cost being from $95-160, depending on what was found) we decided to purchase the LS80 ($155) as we had...
Summary: We have owned this dvd player for 13 months. We just got the H03 error; right on time according to other reviews. I would recommend looking at other players first or expect to repair this one after about a year.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for the airplane rides. She loves it. Our 5-year-old friend has used it several times. So, it's easy to use & works as designed. I used it on a recent plane trip and found that the adjustable screen was very useful. The 6 hour battery is great for the long trips.
Summary: This DVD player is satisfactory: good quality, fair image, good sound, you can plug 2 earphones. However, I would not purchase this product again. And it will be my last Panasonic DVD player. Why? It is almost impossible to dezone Panasonic DVD players.
