Summary: We bought this player for occasional travel purposes and were VERY disappointed when after 20 hours use we got an F893 Error Code and the unit was inoperable. As I said it was used for occasional travel, by 2 adults only, and unfortunately the 12 month warranty had expired by 1 month when this occurred.
Summary: I basically bought this unit for the long battery life, and no complains there, it kept my kids happy on 10 hour flights with near constant use - I had to reduce brightness to 0 which still produces a good image (it goes from -5 to 5). The size and form factor of the unit seems near perfect to me.
Summary: We bought this specifically because it has a long battery life. We bought this (for our 2 year old) to take on an overseas (10 hour) flight home for Christmas. While the description says the battery lasts 10 hours, reading the manual you will see that it lasts 10 hours when the LCD screen is on (-5) (lowest), 7-8 hours on (0), and 5 hours on (+5) (brightest). We found that the 0 setting was plenty light for the plane rides, and we had no issues with battery length.
Summary: I bought mine on May 2006.Last month I got an error H03 ,menas it can't read. Call the CS and they told me to bring to nearest Service Station. Need to pay 95 for the labor and still warranty for the parts. I'm going to get it this weekend. The product is good especially the battery, just make sure to buy extende warranty if buying Panasonic DVD product. Cause it's the common problem with Panasonic for H03 error.
Summary: We bought one over a month ago and we obviously made the right choice! The FM transmitter is a great add-on, picture is excellent and battery life is fantastic! Overall, it is well worth the price.
Panasonic dvd LX97 Portable DVD Player With Screen Review

Excerpt: Hi there,well at long last ive found as near as perfect as you will get in portable dvd players.Forget the Panasonic LS91 (tried it,rubbish battery life,like most players.)The LX97 surpasses itself.I watched a dvd for 3 and a half hours with +3 on the brightness level and when i was too tired to continue it still had two bars on the battery level.Sound and picture are brilliant and easy to use,what a great portable player.Id recommend THIS one!!
Pros: The battery actually lasts through a long film in one hit.Its cool design,9 inch screen makes so much difference.too much to write really,im really pleased with it as i love movies and the sound is fantastic on a lot of cool movies,very realistic.
Cons: Cant think of anything that stands out to be honest!,i guess for the money they could of given some earphones at least!.
