5-0 out of 5 stars Best portable DVD on the market.
It's all about picture quality and this Panasonic is one of the best. Colors are incredible. You can also adjust the screen size and brightness as well as the color. Flexible screen for viewing at a variety of angles. One of the most durable players also - no problems. Don't waste your time with an off brand that will break down in no time, spend the extra money and get a real quality unit that you'll enjoy. The remote works great also. It's also small enough to take anywhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Fun for Long Trips
My family recently took this player with us on a long road trip, and it was a great way to entertain the kids. In addition to DVD movies, I recorded several hours of Video CD from my PC TV capture card, and burned hundreds of MP3s onto a few CDs.

Sound through the speakers wasn't quite loud enough for freeway driving, so we hooked the audio-out to an FM transmitter to feed the sound through the car stereo.

Overall we've been really happy with this player. The one negative point came when we bought the car power adapter. Prepare to be gouged if you do the same. It easily cost four times what I would have expected, so don't consider it an after-thought add-on. But for our situation, it was a necessity.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good picture and sound - great price!
After shopping around for a portable DVD player, I was lured by a sale on this model. For under [money], you get a very good picture and excellent sound quality. The remote is compact and the screen pivots which is an added bonus. It's great for playing CDs (regular or MP3). You can also hook this up to a TV and the quality is comprable to most mid-range DVD players on the market. Highly recommended for heavy travellers or someone looking to hook up a DVD player on their spare TV.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Lie if you think it plays JPEGs
BEWARE of the fine print!I was so thrilled when I first read it can play jpgs.I thought this can replace a laptop when I am traveling.When I got it, the fine print says it plays jpgs on a SD memory card.Now, who is going to go out a buy a SD memory card and the transfer their pictures on there?What a big LIE!With a laptop, all I have to do is burn all my pictures on a cd and take it with my other cds.Now I have to pay extra money to buy SD memory card, a reader, and the works.This little memory card cannot have all the memory (~128mB) of your cd (700mB).In addition, all my investment in Compact Flash cards are worthless now.

I ask myself now why I didn't pay the extra money for a [$$$] low end laptop that can play dvds.I don't know.I guess I was taken by the corporate tagline.Sorry for any spelling errors but as you can see, I am visably upset.

5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive Player
I bought this product after reviewing the ratings on this and other brands. I must say the ratings proved a correct guide. At first sight the product looked sleek. When I tried a DVD (Jurassic Park 111), the clarity of the video on the LCD screen and ease of play really stunned me. The Audio was also impressive, especially with stereo speakers. The real test was whether it could play my DVD+RW that I cut on my computer using Pinnacle studio DV8. To my satisfaction it played without any problems. I also tried a Video CD and this worked quite well.

I then tried to connect to my Infocus projector and this also worked well. The only drawback is that the unit did not come with a separate s-video out connection. After reading the manual I discovered that the s-video out connection is achieved via a separate cable which connects to the video jack and is not shipped standard with the product. I have since purchased this item and awaiting receipt of the item.

The bottom line, Impressive product. Plays video and audio well with a lot of user features to suite one's taste. ... Read more


185. Panasonic PT-53X54 53" Widescreen Projection HDTV-Ready TV

Catlog: CE

Amazon.com Product Description

A big screen doesn't have to mean big money. And Panasonic's 53-inch PT-53X54 projection television offers not just outstanding picture quality but a wealth of inputs and picture-enhancing features. The set's huge, high-definition screen (1080i, 540p capable) lets you view HD or enhanced-definition (ED) TV programming from an optional DTV set-top box or a progressive-scan DVD player or digital video recorder. The set's broad, 0.52 mm fine-pitch screen is configured in a 16:9 aspect ratio, the standard for HDTV broadcasts and for most widescreen DVD movies.

Two-tuner picture-in-picture with split-screen display lets you view 2 programs at once by dividing the screen in half down the middle. Each program is shown at full height, with one program on the left side and the other on the right.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional video picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Panasonic's Progressive Cinema Scan (3:2 pulldown reversal) provides faithful reproduction of film-based materials. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; Progressive Cinema Scan digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

A motion-adaptive 3D-Y/C digital comb filter displays bright colors and action scenes with incredible clarity by minimizing the "color rainbow effect" in closely spaced patterns, compensating for the motion that occurs between fields. Digital velocity-modulated scanning improves definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

The set sports an external shelf mounted on top, a great place to position an HDTV receiver, a satellite receiver, a cable box, a DVD player, a VCR or a center-channel speaker. (Whatever you put there, its weight must not exceed 25 pounds.)

For connections, the set offers 4 composite-video inputs, including 1 in front for easy hookup of a camcorder or gaming console. There are 3 S-video inputs (including 1 in front) and 2 sets of high-definition/progressive-scan component-video inputs. The TV is also equipped with a direct digital HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) with HDCP copy protection.

HDMI is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any AV source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multichannel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

Other TV features include horizontal and vertical edge correction, Artificial Intelligence Sound (minimizes variances in sound level), video noise reduction (compares individual pixels of two consecutive fields, then removes noise), BBE High Definition Sound (improves speech intelligibility and restores musical dynamic range), 9-point user convergence capability, and a light-disk remote control. An easy-to-clean screen shield protects the screen from nicks, scratches, and fingerprints.

Amazon.com Product Description

The stylishly small Panasonic VDR-M70 marks the next step in DVD video camcorders. As full-featured as it is easy to use, this compact camcorder records high-quality digital video and still images onto removable 3-inch (8cm) DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs, allowing for non-linear editing and within the camcorder. The VDR-M70 features a 18x optical zoom, 240x digital zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, 1-megapixel resolution, and SD memory card compatibility.

Optics and Resolution
The VDR-M50 DVD camcorder has a 1/4" 1-megapixel CCD, providing sharp and vibrant video. In addition to the 18x optical zoom, the 240x digital zoom allows you to capture that perfect moment, no matter how far away you are.

DVD Format
The VDR-M70 combines all the technological benefits of the rewritable DVD-RAM format with the compatibility of write-once DVD-R media. DVD-RAM offers the highest quality in digital imaging, huge storage capability--capturing up to 120 minutes of digital video and 1,998 still images to DVD media--and rewritability up to 100,000 times, with virtually no degradation of picture quality no matter how many times the disc is played back. The DVD-R format offers the ability to record onto affordable DVD-R discs for sharing with friends and family, and archiving memories for everyone to enjoy.

With the DVD-RAM format, you can access recorded scenes quickly and easily. Indexed thumbnails are displayed on the 2.5-inch color LCD. In addition, the camcorder will automatically find blank space on the DVD-RAM disc whenever a recording begins, eliminating the possibility of recording over what you've already shot. Camcorder editing features include delete, rearrange, fade in/out, wipe, divide, and splice.

Recorded video and still images captured by the VDR-M70 can be played back on DVD-RAM and the majority of DVD-R compatible MPEG2-conforming devices. Just slide the disc out of the new disc cartridge and place it into the DVD recorder or player, or into a PC or laptop computer equipped with DVD playback.

More Features
In addition to video, the VDR-M70 can capture still images up to 1280 x 960 pixel resolution, good enough resolution for 4 x 6-inch prints. (A DVD-RAM disc can store JPEG photo data and video together on the same disc.) You can save images either to the DVD or to Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards.

The VDR-M70M70 uses a USB 2.0 connection for high-speed transfer of content to a PC--a step forward from the slower USB 1.1.

Other features include:

  • Digital Electronic Image Stabilization helps compensate for unintended hand and/or camcorder movement
  • Thumbnail scenes display lets you select scenes recorded on a disc and arrange them to play back in any order the users want
  • LUX rating of 12 LUX
  • Low-light mode available for shooting in near-dark situations
  • Hot shoe connector for accessories

5-0 out of 5 stars out-of-site camera
The Panasonic Digat Palmcorder DVD Camcorder is one of the easiest and most advanced dvd cameras I have used to make movies and stills. The instruction book is very easy to use and all the pictures in the instruction book are very clear and look like the camera itself. After I got the camera it was not long before I was taking videos, stills and learning about all the extras in the menu line up. Also putting the dvds in and out of the camera was a breeze. What really impressed me was the joy stick. By just moving it right, left, down, or up you could access any of the thumbnails or start the dvd anywhere you wanted. If you are looking for a good dvd camera that takes exceptional movies and stills and makes it easy, the vdr70 is the camera for you!

Amazon.com Product Description

Note: Panasonic is discontinuing its popular 5100 series. Check out the newer 5200 series instead, like the Panasonic KX-TG5240M GigaRange Supreme 5.8 GHz DSS Expandable Cordless Phone with Answering System.

A 5.8 GHz DSS cordless phone from Panasonic, the KX-TG5100M provides both excellent quality and a number of useful features, including an integrated digital answering system and caller ID with call waiting compatibility. By utilizing the less congested 5.8 GHz frequency and digital spread spectrum technology, the KX-TG5100M offers clear, intelligible reception even at a distance. Multiuser expandable, the KX-TG5100M supports up to seven optional handsets (plus one included, for a total of eight) and features handset-to-handset call transfer, as well as two-way intercom between the base and any of the handsets. A call privacy feature lets you determine if other handsets can join in on the conversation, while the page feature makes locating a lost handset into a snap. The KX-TG5100M features 50 caller ID memory locations and a built-in speakerphone for hands-free operation.

Wall-mountable, freeing up valuable desktop space, the KX-TG5100M is also headset compatible (a belt-clip is provided) saving your neck from the strain of cradling the phone. The integrated three-mailbox digital answering system has a record time of up to 15 minutes, while remote message check lets you stay in touch even while you are away. The NiCad battery provides about 4.5 hours of talk time and 11 days of standby, while a low battery indicator lets you know when the phone needs recharging. A time/date stamp lets you know when each message was received, and a 50 number phone directory lets you easily find and dial the most frequently used phone numbers. The KX-TG5100M also comes backed with a one-year limited warranty.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone system, just a couple gripes
Overall, this is an outstanding telephone system. I purchased the base unit kx-tg5100M and one additional handset kx-tga510M back in June to replace a Sony 900MHz cordless that had chronic battery life problems.

Unfortunately I just had to write Panasonic customer service as within the last couple of weeks one of the handsets has started to exhibit an LCD that is barely readable (sometimes fair, sometimes not at all). The unit is fully charged and I have adjusted contrast, with only marginal effect. The other handset is still performing normally. The units are covered by a 1-year warranty so I'm not expecting any issues with customer service.

Aside from this as I mentioned, the phone is great! My highlights...

Pros:
-Great sound quality throughout the house and around our suburban 1/3 acre lot
-No interference with wireless network or other household

Cons:
-LCD issue as mentioned above
-Lack of Caller ID to programmed number matching on incomming calls
-My base unit speakerphone performance does not appear to measure up to that of other reviewers, I would rate the speakerphone as average to slightly below average, would be great if Panasonic would offer a configuration with a corded handset in the base as well
-Ability to copy phone numbers from base-handset, handset-base or handset-handset is great except that in my experience it is a copy only with no over-write capability. This is an issue in the case where I maintain the phonebook at the base unit and want to publish out to the handsets. If you delete a number from the base and then copy to a handset, the deleted number still exists on the handset. Short of pulling the battery and starting over (re-register, etc...) with the handset, I can't find a way of erasing all of the phonebook entries in a handset.

My (mostly minor) gripes aside, this is still a great telephone system. I feel that it still merits 4-stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Shourya Ray
There are very few expandable phone systems that work as well as the Panasonic KXTG5100. I was looking for a 5.8Ghz system to get around the static I experienced with 2.4ghz phones and my Wi-Fi (802.11b) home network.

In no particular order, here are my pros and cons about this system:

PROS:

1) Excellent speakerphone on the base

2) Ability to pickup voicemail from any handset (don't have to walk to the base-station to see if you have voicemail). Handset visually tells you which buttons to push to skip or repeat the message. It also shows the message # while the message is being played back.

3) Handsets have Privacy features to prevent other family members from accidentally picking up the line while you're on it (handy if you run a business out of your home .. or you are a teenager and don't appreciate your parents listening in)

4) Speakerphone on each handset means mobility and hands free talking

5) Each handset shows if the line is in use before you reach for it

6) Ability to copy the phonebook from any handset to any other handset. This is a huge timesaver! I have all my phone number/contacts programmed on one handset. From there I can transfer the phonebook to each of the other 3 handsets in the house with a few key strokes. Amazing!

7) Bi-directional 5.8Ghz means that no interference with home networks, microwaves, etc. The base-station sits two feet away from the wifi router. No static anywhere in the house.

8) Easy to transfer calls from handset to handset (say you pick up the call and realize it's for your spouse. No need to walk around looking for him/her. Just page the other handsets from your handset and hand-off the call. All we need now is some hold music! (which, incidentally, is not supported)

9) Handset has a "booster" feature that can be turned on to get rid of static if you have walked more than 3 floors away from the base-station. Works nicely too. Too bad it can't be left on all the time.

10) Room monitor system allows you to listen in on what's going on in the room that the handset is in from a different handset. I suppose that parents with small children might find this a nice feature. Fortunately, it's turned off by default.

11) When playing back a voicemail, the handset shows the phone number of the person who left that voicemail (if you have caller id). You can then call that person back immediately, by pressing Dial. Very handy

12) If you transfer a call to another handset and nobody picks up that handset, the base-station will conveniently transfer the call back to you

CONS:

1) Handset distance from the base-station could be better. I picked up a little static when I was three floors away from the base-station. The static is easily removed by engaging the booster mode on the handset. Unfortunately, there is no way to leave this permanently set to on.

2) Handsets may be a bit larger than what home users may be used to

3) Handsets don't show current date or time (odd, since the base-station shows both)

4) Handset volume could be a bit louder. It has a nice volume range that you can change but the max volume is still a bit lower than what you need for noisy homes (either that or I'm losing my hearing)

5) The base-station can page all handsets simultaneously. This is useful if you need to page your spouse/kids and don't know which floor of the house they are on. Mysteriously, this feature is not available with the handsets. When using a handset, you have to page other handsets individually -- no way to page them all together. I have 4 handsets in the house ... this is getting old very fast. Fortunately, the base-station sits near my work area.

6) No way to give each handset a meaningful name ("bedroom phone"). Instead, each handset has a unique registration number (1 through 7). When I need to page my wife on the third floor, I have to remember that the handset on the third floor is registered with the base-station as handset #4. Not very intuitive.

Lastly, no phone with this many features would be useable without a good manual. This phone comes with a manual that is well indexed. You can download the manual in a PDF format from panasonic's website if you want to go over the features yourself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Initial impression about interference with wi-fi
I want to have this 5.8GHz phone solely for avoiding interference with wi-fi (my wireless network). Otherwise, i would just live with my prehistorical cordless phone, which has become completely useless since wi-fi (802.11g) is installed.

So here is my initial impression after playing it:

1. Reception and sound clarity at the handset is near perfect, not affected by the wi-fi signal, even when the handset is less than 1' to the wireless router. The base is about 15m from the wireless router.

2. The wi-fi network is, however, affected by the 5.8G. The interference cuts off my computer's connection intermittently every 5 minutes, when my computer is kept about 15m from the router and 5m from the phone base (all indoor). In addition, the computer is much slower detecting the wireless network. This is frustrating. But you may be able to adjust the computer setting to reduce the first problem, which I did and was successful. This may not be the fault of telephone.

3. The phone is solid, no plastic feeling. Everything seems to work within expectation.

5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this phone
I bought this phone to replace a 2.4GHz phone that was interfering with my wireless network - and it works like a dream.

I read the reviews below have some observations:

1) I have never had a problem with the LCD display.

2) If a call comes up on Caller ID with a "1" before it, you can easily delete the "1" and still retain the remaining 10 digits.

3) The battery life is not that great (the only drawback) and I did have to replace the battery a few months later (NOTE: using the handset speakerphone drains the battery faster).

The sound quality is great and the handset is not too large to be bulky or too small to be uncomfortable. I strongly recommend this unit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, with a Few Quirks
Overall, this is a pretty good phone, and does everything I want it to. It has decent sound and range...but that's what I expected. It has a couple of quirks that prevent it from getting a 5-star rating.

First of all, if the answering machine has picked up, it does not know that another extension (in my case, a corded phone) has picked up, and doesn't shut off. Real annoying, especially since it picks up on 3.5 rings (or 1.5 if there are messages). A real pain since these phones are at opposite ends of the house. If I had known this before buying the phone, I would have opted for a seperate phone and answering machine.

Secondly, it always adds a "1" and the area code to caller id numbers, even when it is a local call. As an added "bonus" if you just hit "redial" on one of these calls, it will go thru, and you will be charged for a "local toll call".

Third, deleting the "missed calls" list on the base doesn't erase them from the handsets, and vice versa. Deleting the "missed calls" from the handset is not intuitive. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice Phone, But Lacks Some Essentials
I have to agree with everyone. Two lines are very nice, but the lack of a mute button makes this phone unusable for conference calls. Unfortunately, I am going to have to replace it with another phone that has two lines and a mute button. Fatal design flaw. Lack of a lighted "message waiting indicator light" is also a big drawback, but there is a faint message waiting indicator on the LCD.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it better than most
It's true, it's not perfect, but it doesn't cost a fortune either. There is no mute button, but I use the speakerphone to listen until I get off the endless hold of banks, tech support, whatever.. so that is not a problem for me. I like that I can use my headset, the handset OR the speaker. The sound quality is good. I set Line 1 as my default line, and I HAVE dialtone on Line 1 when there is no power. I have had the phone unplugged for up to an hour an NOT lost my settings, so I don't think that's all that much of a problem either. Yes, you have to be able to use a menu to set the ringer volume, but once it's set, I leave it, so again, no problem there. For me this phone was a good value for the money, and I am happy with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars No MUTE button while on speakerphone
Great phone for 2 line use in my home office, however lacks a MUTE button for conference calls.

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware No Mute, No Easy Ringer Off
No mute button? Isn't that illegal? How about having to drill down menu after menu to just to turn off the ringer? Otherwise the phone works great and sounds great. But these are biggies to me.

2-0 out of 5 stars buyer beware! does not work if you lose power!
As a long-time happy owner of numerous Panasonic corded and cordless phones over the years, I purchased this 2-line corded phone as a backup in the event of a power failure (when my Siemens 2-line cordless system wouldn't work).

Well, imagine my surprise when I unpacked it and read the manual only to discover the phone does NOT work when you lose power! This is COMPLETEY unacceptable for a corded phone -- my older single-line Panasonic corded phones use AA batteries instead of the 9V power adapter on this model.

The manual claims that in the event of a power failure you can only use line1. This is NOT true. I could not get a dialtone from either line without plugging in the power adapter.

I consider this a fatal flaw. Thankfully I was able to return it for a refund. It's a shame, because there aren't many choices in 2-line corded phones. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Believe the bad reviews
The battery is worthless. I've had the phone for about 9 months, and the battery cannot hold a charge and continues to get worse, and I'm about to buy a new phone to replace my new phone. As the price on this baby already has fallen steeply, I guess panasonic has realized its a dud and you should avoid it all costs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone!
I've had the phone now 5 months or so. Its base speakerphone is very clear and strong, as is the speakerphone on the handset. Programming #'s to save is easy. Programming #'s to save from caller I/D, however, is somewhat tricky until you master the learning curve. I'm glad I took my business associate's advice and paid more to get this model, it has been worth it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible Battery Life
I bought this phone since our old, and still working, cordless phone was reliable and also a Panasonic. I even bought an extra handset. Well I haven't had this set but a year and the battery life has gotten horrible. If it's on the charger all night, I get about 45 minutes of talk time before it dies. I am always babysitting this phone by making sure it's on the charger. I never had to do that with the old one, and still don't. I am really disappointed in this product.

I spent a lot of money on these phones and it infuriates me that I'll need to go and buy a new set of phones. Only this time it will not be Panasonic.

1-0 out of 5 stars I wasted money on this
Phone looks cool. But, you can talk only for 10 minutes using speakerphone and battery gets exchausted completely and 90% of the time caller id is not displayed. So, please don't waste money on this!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible phone
I have this phone and its the worst as far as battery life.I thought buying a extra handset would help but that battery life is just as bad.they tell you talk time is so many hours,I am lucky if I get 10 minutes talk time and its dead.I have never been so disappointed in a product like this.For what I payed for this phone it is more hype than anything.Its horrible.I will never buy a panasonic product again. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars NO SKIP-REALLY!
On the blister package of the Panasonic SL-CT710 it claims NO SKIP, a claim often made and less then often true, but in the case of the Panasonic SL-CT710 it REALLY does'nt skip.

I rated it 4 stars - the reason it did'nt qualify for that fifth shining star is due to distortion, when connected to an external amp thru it's earphone jack. If the volume of Panasonic SL-CT710 is set less than 10, a very audible(and annoying) hiss sound is heard, in fairness the Panasonic SL-CT710 owner's manual does instruct users to set volume from 10-15 when connecting to external stereo amp. Strange though even the cheapest CD players never caused this audio distortion - must be the units unique and powerfull amp.

Finally. I contacted Panasonic and asked was there a menas of adjusting the bass level presets(XBS,XBS+) sadly there is'nt I strongly urged them to integrate a custom configurable EQ, Because to me for many songs the XBS swallows all the highs, thus making the music sound like it coming from a big clay pot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD Player
I was extremely hesistant on purchasing this product at first, but now I've received this, I am glad I made this purchase. The CD player itself is really slick and light. The cover of the player also acts as a mirror~

Pros: Player is very slim and light. Cover is reflective, acts like a mirror. Great battery life, and rechargable which saves a lot of money on disposable batteries. It charges while the batteries are in the player, so don't have to take them out. The little remote is very responsive and easy to use. Different EQ such as S-XBS, S-XBS+, Train, Live are great sound features. Players CD, MP3s very well, very minimal loading time for the MP3s. While playing, the button lights on the player will flash randomly, which looks cool. Was hoping to have some ligh flashing on the remote too, but no.

Cons: The remote doesn't have a pause button. The wire of the remote is a bit thick. The earphone that comes with player is not great.

I recommend the Sony fontopia EX71SL to go along witht this player, the bass will hit you so hard that it'll hurt.

4-0 out of 5 stars almost there
I bought this a few days ago. The first impressions are quite positive. Slick and slim. It feels like a good player.
Good stuff is written on the box, so I will focus on what is missing:

the remote cannot pause

the headphone cable is way too short, it is hard to find a place to attach the remote, it just hangs loose in the air, hence it is not comfortable since the earbuds tend to drop out when you move a lot

no word if the firmware is upgradable, support for other media types in time would be good

comes with no software for managing your music files, an mp3 ripper would be nice along with this product

overall:
I liked the product... If you do not mind the remote swinging back and forth, or buying a new pair of headphones, this is a good gadget

3-0 out of 5 stars A little Overrated
I bought this product based on many positive reviews and was a little disappointed in it. It definitely delivered on style and small size, but there are two things that make me frustrated with my purchase.

First, the cover is very flimsy and just waiting to be snapped off. I am sure this is what people come to expect with electronics that have a functional life of 2 years, but I am afraid to do much anything active with this guy for fear of breakage. Changing CD's is a continual process of fear that I might put a few too many grams per square inch pressure on the lid and watch it snap off. Pretty frustrating, but I can manage, I just keep it in my bag when I am listening and use caution when changing discs. A forgivable problem.

This next one is not so forgivable - You cannot fast-forward through MP3 files. What gives? Did Panasonic just decide that consumers only need to FF through CD audio, and because you can fit vast quantities of audio on one MP3 CD you have no possible reason to FF through the multitude of songs? Very frustrating. Much less forgivable.

So to sum up:

The plusses - small size, sleek design, great battery life, nice corded LCD remote

The minuses - flimsy design, terrible headphones, cannot FF through MP3.

If I knew what I know now about this one I probably wouldn't buy it unless it were $20 cheaper.

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome sound
I recieved this Discman a few weeks ago - so far everything is excellent. The only complaint I have is the ear bud thingys. Quite frankly, they make your ears sore, and the left one falls out frequently because for some reason they decided to make that cord shorter then the right side. I would suggest using another pair of headphones with this - I got Panasonic RP-HS71 Clip-Type Stereo Headphones and they work great with the SL-CT710! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good function, ugly appearance
First, the good news. Panasonic has fixed all of the problems the 2.4GHz phones experienced. They have finally seen the light and are using NiMH batteries. These are a huge improvement over the previous NiCad batteries. Sound quality is good, as is range. Setup is easy, and the features all work as they should. This phone functions so much better than the Siemens phone it replaces that there is simply no basis for comparison. Function early a solid five stars.

The bad news for many will be the appearance. What are the product stylists at Panasonic thinking and who do they imagine the buyer is? One wonders what sort of d├ęcor they imagine will be enhanced by bright silver phones with orange LCD screens and antennas sticking up everywhere? Before you buy one, make sure that any other decision makers in the household are consulted on the appearance. The icing on the cake is the rather large baby blue and black logo announcing to the world that this is the "5.8GHz Gigarange Supreme" which completes the overall cheesy appearance nicely. Our Siemens phone may have been had functional issues, but it was well styled and disappeared into virtually any background. On the other hand, the Uniden phones make the Panasonic styling look positively restrained. Appearance earns a dismal two stars.

Keypad layout is pretty typical of what one expects these days from Asian mass-market electronics companies, busy and cluttered. Why use a single button for talk/hang up when you can use a separate one for each? If there was space to add more buttons, rest assured Panasonic would have. Since the buttons actually feel good in use, are not overly sensitive and don't stick when pushed, the layout earns three stars.

In the end I weighted my rating more toward function, as that's really the only area one can be objective about, and the function is strong. If you can stand to look at it, and you're not married to someone that will hold a grudge because you brought something hideous looking into the house, you probably won't be disappointed. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Last of the view budget tables
This and its pitch controllable sibling BD22 are the very last semi listenable semi automatic entry level turntables below 300 dollars on the market. If you are looking for a machine that will lift the arm at the end of the record, this is pretty much the only one left that will do it and not sound like a plastic cup string telephone. Not the worst I've heard, but PLEASE don't pay attention to die-hard "Technics is the best" fans. Most of them only read manufacturer's hype sheets and have never tried a Thorens, Dual, Music Hall, Project, etc, not even mentioning a real high end machine!
If you are on a strict budget, then for sure this is the best choice under 200 dollars, but don't expect exceptional sound. A good homebaked player to revive your vinyl collection, and take it as such.
If can you get yourself to get out of the chair at the end of the record to list the arm and return it, then look for a HiFi dealer that carries the contemporary audiophile turntables made by Music Hall or Project. You will have to spring around 300 dollars for their lowest offerings, but you get a real turntable - one that can accept standard 1/2 inch mount cartridges.
Even the factory cartridges on the Music Hall MMF 2.1 and the Project 1.2 (both use Goldring cartridges) will sound much better than the T4P style cartridge on the Technics BD20 (there is NO good T4P cartridge on the market) and if you need a new needle or want to upgrade to a better one, your selection will be much bigger down the line.

Almost forgot - Gemini, GLI-Pro, and Stanton have completely manual "DJ" tables for around 120 to 180 dollars on the ,arket, that are much sturdier, heavier, with a better platter and base, and thwey take 1/2 inch mount cartridges as well and allow full adjustment and balancing of the tone arm - for good listening DO NOT get the "straight" DJ tone arms though, you'll ruin your records! Get either the S shaped arms, or make sure the head is angled in.

Keep in mind that a stylus (the "needle") should be checked at least every 300 hours, and is likely due for replacement after 1000 hours, earlier if your records are worn and scratchy.
If you cannot tell the difference between a cheap portable Walmart pocket CD player plugged into your stereo and a good full sized CD player, then the Technics BD20 may be for you, but if you can tell any difference at all, then do yourself a favor: Save the 120 bucks for a better turntable - you won't end up throwing it to Goodwill like so many have done (i've been through a lot of turntables - it's a hobby, and I keep peeking around what's out there)
The problem with the new cheap machines is that they are too light. Flimsy platters, and light flexible bases mean a plasticky sound.
If you can't afford a new 300 dollar machine you are much better of buying an old used table. SOME of tyhe Technics player were good, the later and current 1200 series is overrated and over priced. Technics models 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 1700, 1301 are suitable hifi players, never mind the DJ machines. Old Pioneer, Dual, Sansui, etc are all potentially good choices.

The bargain hunter's real secret for a cheap frills table are the OLD Sanyo, Hitachi, Pioneer, and a Dual semi auto model 510 is tue audiophile grade and can be on ebay for as little as 25 bucks and will not have the problems of the more complex full auto models!

Beware fully automatic stacking tables in any case. I love them and have a Dual belt drive collection, but they may take a lot of tinkering to get them to work right!
Look for a solid belt or direct drive machine with a platter weighing at least 2 pounds, preferrably with a floating chassis (the platter and arm are spring suspended). You can find them for under 50 dollars. Add a new cartridge (Audio Technica AT110, AT70, AT440, Shure M91, M97, or a Stanton - Ortofon is rated high, but always sounds dull to me) for around 50 to 100 dollars, and you have a much better setup. If that's too much see below for the Grado.
I have an Audio Technica OC-9 moving coil cartridge (expensive), but that is strictly used for burning CD copies. For daily listening the Audio Technica AT440 is hands down one of the best values, along with the Shure M97.
Grado has ONE offering worth the money, the "Grado Black", which retails for around 35 dollars - sensitive for feedback, but except for a slightly soft (but pleasant) base reproduction you can just about the grass grow with it! I say ONE offering, because the higher priced models are the same thing in a different wrapper. Wanna talk marketing???
Also keep in mind that you need a "phono" input on your stereo. If you have a modern stereo amp or receiver, chances are you don't have one. A so called phono-preamp will boost the player's signal for use in the "aux" input of your receiver. A good phono preamp is around 50 dollars.
So never mind the comments about built in phono preamps, the players that have them are mostly shoddy sounding.
Summary: the Technics BD20 is ok if you're on a budget, but you can do better with a little snooping and effort.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent No-Fuss Turntable
Attempting to transcribe some rare soundtrack albums unavailable on CD, I discovered to my dismay that my venerable Dual automatic turntable - buried for more than ten years under several stacks of CDs - had given up the ghost.
No strobe light. No motion. No nothing. Dead.
I saw the Technics SL-BD20D at a refurbished sale recently and decided to take a chance. I'm very glad I did; this is a solid no-frills turntable that does all the basics right and will satisfy the needs of all but the most demanding audiophiles.
I did replace the cartridge that came with the machine. Surface noise seemed excessive and the sound seemed a little distant or hollow; in fairness, there was other evidence that the refurbishers might not have done their job properly, and perhaps I bought a unit with a worn needle.
At any rate, equipped with a Shure MP94E P-Mount Cartridge, the SL-BD20D sounds great. As I say, it handles basics superbly. This is a serious turntable that will treat your vinyl with respect, not one of those retro novelty machines you see advertised.
The SL-BD20D has a straight low-mass tone arm, and the playing geometry is correct. I don't hear the sibilance at the end of record sides that I have heard when a cartridge is improperly aligned or a tone arm improperly mounted. Surface noise is surprisingly low. The servo motor and belt drive provide good steady speed, with no audible hum, wow, or flutter.
I read a user griping that you can't set the tracking force or anti-skating on this machine. The whole idea of the P-Mount design is you don't need to; P-Mount cartridges are designed to track properly at this machine's pre-set 1.25 gram force. After several hours of playing records, the SL-BD20D with the Shure cartridge has tracked perfectly, never skipping once in either direction.
With the low-mass tone arm and anti-resonant base, bass is full but well damped. I am listening to Fleetwood Mac doing Rhiannon now, and it sounds as good as I remember ever hearing it - even with my beloved old Shure V-15 Type IV.
The SL-BD20D is a semi-automatic design; you lower the stylus onto the record with the well-damped cueing mechanism, and the machine returns the tone arm to rest and shuts off automatically at the end of the side.
As someone who grew up with generations of what we used to call record players, from Webcors to Garrards to Miracords to Duals, I have seen my share of eccentric and unreliable mechanisms. I am happy to report that the mechanism on the SL-BD20D works very quietly, with smooth and precise movements. Traditional Japanese attention to detail.
Otherwise, the SL-BD20D is handsome and comes with a hinged smoked dust cover, 45 adapter, and full-sized turntable to support your vinyl properly. It should be noted, however, that the unit does not include a preamp.
You can spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on an audiophile turntable. But if you simply want first-class sound with a minimum of fuss and bother, you can have the SL-BD20D with a good cartridge that's a snap to install for well under $200. That's impressive indeed.

3-0 out of 5 stars solid turntable , but no built-in pre-amp
This is a great basic turntable if you're just looking to play the old LPs, however, be warned that if you plan on hooking this up to a mini-stereo system without phono jacks, then you'll need to purchase a seperate pre-amp which runs around [dollar amount]. This brings the total cost of the unit to about [dollar amount] which is not worth it if you're just a casual user of LPs (plus this is only a semi-automatic). You'd be better off purchasing a cheaper system (e.g. the sony) with a built-in pre-amp so that it can connect to mini-systems.

4-0 out of 5 stars Technics Stands the Test (For the Casual LP Listener)
I personally own this turntable. It is not a heavy duty dj constructed turntable such as their MK 2 series or the new M3D. It was designed by Technics for practical and casual in home use.It provides excellent and almost perfect accuracy with regard to very low wow and flutter (speed differences that would audibly affect playback).This is for the couch potato who likes to put an lp on and not have to worry about turning it off.The semi-automatic operation takes care of that.In addition, anti-skating and tone arm weight adjustments have already been pre set at the factory so there is no guess work for the owner.The plug in cartridge is easy to replace without having to gauge stylus contact and performance as with a pro dj turntable. However,heed my warning, here are the drawbacks: If you are a heavy vinyl user and enjoy adjusting anti skating or counter weight balance for optimal high end quality sound, this is not the table for that. Their MK2 or M3D are the tables that are suitable for those tasks.Also, I have been able to compare this table's tracking abilities using a slightly warped record (warped around the edge only) and the SLBD20D could not keep up. However, when I tried it on a Technics M3D I was able to adjust the counterweight balance and tracking force, anti-skating, etc. and low and behold the M3D stood its ground.Don't get me wrong, the SLBD20D is a well constructed table run by a very quiet belt-driven dc motor. It's a fine simple machine that sets out to do the simple operation of just playing a record. Also, not everyone can nor is willing (on a tight budget)to fork over several hundreds of dollars for a dj turntable if their lp collection is very limited. This is a great budget turntable with the feel of remarkable Technics engineering behind it !!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Technics Semi-Automatic Turntable (SL-BD20D)
If you want to spin and you don't use Technics, don't even bother. Technics make the longest lasting tables that produce the best sound. And Technics Semi-Automatic Turntable (SL-BD20D)
is the best for your money. I wouldn't Dj any other way. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this phone
Buy this phone if you want to use the phone for only 2 minutes, because after that the battery discharges.

4-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic phones are nearly bulletproof!
I own several 2.4 Ghz panasonic phones including two 1-line phones and a 2-line. My latest experience got me motivated to share a true test of their sturdy construction.

While wearing the belt clip, I went into my backyard to check on my swimming pool equipment. Leaning over the edge, I accidentally bumped the phone and knocked it into the water. Before I could grap it, it sunk to the bottom. After getting the net and fishing it off the 8-9 foot depth at the bottom, it stopped functioning (temporarily!!!)

That night, after removing the battery, shaking out all the water I could and setting it on a countertop to dry, I went to a local store to buy a replacement (this time a 2-line panasonic Model #KX-TG2267 (which has great fidelity, battery life, and general functionality.) I use these phones for my home office; they get intermittent use throughout the day, in an environment where my professionalism depends upon their performance.

After a day or so of partial function of the phone that went for a swim (after repeatedly shaking the water out of the phone by whirling it around in my hand), the phone is working exactly as it did prior to the incident. Now I know that these phones are advertised as "splashproof," but they are clearly not designed for a prolonged dunking at 8-9 foot of depth! Do not try this at home -- but mine survived!

Bottom line: They're not perfect, but a very solid, dependable product. As for their battery life, I've never had any problems ... by simply following the start-up charging instructions.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dreadful battery problem
It seems that there is a oproblemw ith the Panasonic battery. If you buy a generic one - it works fine. I bought 3 panasonic ones, all just a sbad - dies very suddenly

Reliable, good reception, solid 2 line phone... Operation user friendly... Does what it is advertised for.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Phone
Panasonic supposedly repaired my phone under warranty. The original wouldn't hold a charge for more than 15 minutes of talk time. I waited 2+ weeks for a replacement and it didn't work. Panasonic customer service was completely unresponsive and rude. I've had great luck with their phones in the past, but despite great features, this one is a lemmon! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Panasonic's full-featured PV-D4744 integrates a high-quality, progressive-scan DVD player and four-head, hi-fi VCR. It features compatibility with a variety of disc and digital audio formats, front A/V inputs, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound compatibility, and a multibrand remote control. And since it's the same width as standard audio components, the PV-D4744K will fit nicely into an attractive-looking home theater system.

On the DVD side, the PV-D4744 is compatible with DVD movie and CD audio, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, Video CD (VCD), and CD-R/RW discs. You can also play MP3 and WMA digital audio and view JPEG images burned to CD-R/CD-RW discs. Other features include 5 Smooth Motion scan speeds (from 5x to 100x), multiple angle viewing, karaoke disc compatibility, and picture zoom (up to 2x).

The VCR's four-head design ensures smooth slow-motion tape play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. The unit even lets you record a TV show while watching a DVD at the same time. By receiving the Extended Data Service signal from your local PBS channel (where available), the PV-D4744K sets its own clock and date. Furthermore, a 24-hour backup system saves the settings and, in the event of a power outage, resets them automatically when the power is restored.

Front audio/video inputs make it easy to hook up your camcorder or gaming device. A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured A/V receiver. The player simulates surround sound from DVD programs for a spacious effect from any two speakers.

Other features include auto VCR head cleaning and tape-position display, a trilingual onscreen display (English, Spanish, French), and Energy Star compliance.

Tech Talk
Progressive scanning: Progressive scanning displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at one time, as a single frame. A progressive scanning DVD player converts the interlaced (480i) video from DVD into progressive (480p) format for connection to a progressive display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution.

1-0 out of 5 stars DONE WITH PANASONIC!!!
I paid $300.00 for this when it first came out. The dvd part is fine, but the vhs part stinks. Wouldn't accept half my tapes (lighter tapes). Would put the tape in, would spit it back out for no reason. Tried all different types, came to realize it wouldn't accept light tapes, such as children's videos, shorter movies, etc. And if the tape wasn't rewound, forget it. My fault on not bringing it back in after buying it (did it from day one). But when you spend that kind of money for something brand new, it should work perfect and it should last a long time. Now the vcr part is completely broken. Nothing but problems with my panasonic phone too. I do not recommend buying this brand, until they can fix all their problems with their electronics. I know I won't be buying their products anymore, because every panasonic item I have owned has had to be replaced.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK for the PRICE BUT NO LP RECORDING SPEED!
THE MAIN REASON I BOUGHT PANASONIC is MY EXCELLANT PAST EXPERIENCE WITH the PANASONIC NAME ESPECIALLY THEIR VCRS. I HAVE ONE of THEIR EARLY HI-FI MODELS THAT is ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD and STILL WORKING. HOWEVER I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT PANASONIC is HAVING SOMEONE ELSE MANUFACTURE THEIR VCRS BECAUSE THIS UNIT PLUS a NEW PANASONIC VCR I BOUGHT DOES NOT RECORD in the VERY PREFERRED SPEED of LP WHICH WAS ALWAYS a BIG REASON I BOUGHT THEIR BRAND. THE LP SPEED is a GOOD COMPROMISE BETWEEN USING the VERY FAST ( and Tape Eating ) SPEED of SP and the SLOWER, POORER VIDEO QUALITY of SLP. THE LP SPEED ALSO GAVE YOU MUCH LESS of a PROBLEM WHEN PLAYING a RECORDED TAPE ON ANOTHER VCR WITH TRACKING PROBLEMS. I ALSO LIKED HOW YOU COULD FIT TWO HOLLYWOOD MOVIES ON ONE TAPE in the LP SPEED THAT GAVE YOU 4 HOURS of RECORDING TIME. I HAVE READ on ANOTHER SITE THAT the VIDEO RECORDER in PANASONIC DVD/VCR RECORDERS are MADE by ANOTHER CHEAPER KOREAN MANUFACTURER WHICH I NOW BELIEVE is TRUE. THIS UNIT WORKS OK WITH TINY BUTTONS and DOES the JOB. ONE THING ABOUT THIS MODEL I REALLY HATE is THAT YOU MUST PUSH in and HOLD the TIMER BUTTON AFTER PROGRAMMING IT or IT WILL NOT RECORD. THIS is EASY to FORGET and MOST VCRS RECORD AFTER PROGRAMMING and TURNING the POWER OFF. I WOULD NOT PAY OVER $115.00 for THIS SINCE PANASONIC is NOT the PANASONIC I ONCE KNEW. I DOUBT THAT PANASONIC MAKES ANY VCR THAT STILL RECORDS in the LP SPEED @ ANY PRICE SO I AM HOLDING ON to MY TWO THAT STILL DO. MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT is THAT PANASONIC is PROBABLY NOT MAKING MOST of THEIR OWN PRODUCTS and EVEN by EXAMINING THEIR CURRENT VIDEO PRODUCTS YOU CAN SEE a LOSS of QUALITY. THEY USED to be of a GREATER QUAILITY and IT SEEMS THEY are TRYING to STAY COMPETITIVE PRICE WISE. I STILL RECOMMEND THIS UNIT OVER the SONY BRAND WHICH ALSO HAS CHEAPENED ITSELF MANY YEARS AGO. SAMSUNG EVEN THOUGH KOREAN is a NOW a GOOD BRAND and RECOMMENDED by CONSUMER REPORTS. I HAVE a SAMSUNG DVD/VCR COMBO and IT is a LITTLE BETTER FEATURE WISE THAN the PANASONIC. MANASQUAN TOM ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Speaker Phone I've ever had
I recently purchased this phone and I expect this will more than pay for itself in a short time. I am using this phone along with a calling card (3.5 cents per minute)to save money and the hassle of trying to call during certain times on the various calling plans. No calling plan comes close to using some of todays calling cards.
I use one of the buttons for the phone number of the calling card, another for the pass code, then another for the party you wish to talk to. This takes a couple of seconds, then you have a crystal clear connection.
When there is a need to be on hold for a while, you just push the speaker phone button to free yourself of having to hold the phone up to your ear. I opt to use the speaker phone on all calls, then I pick up the when the phone is answered.
I hope this phone lasts. I'm hoping for these to come on sale as this will save time (and money)in shopping for the holidays.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
This is a great little phone for the most part.

1)The buttons are not tiny, so you won't be pressing the wrong numbers by mistake.

2)The digital readout is good, but after about two years it begins to fade a bit.

3)The sound quality is clear.

4)The cord is way too short though. You have to be sitting right next to the phone. But I simply replaced it with a longer cord.

5)Programing is not too complicated, but keep the manual nearby for when you have to re-program numbers. It is not simple enough to remember how to do it easily.

But it is better than most other phones I have used. I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a new phone. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Break into the world of DVD entertainment with the stylish, powerful--yet affordable--Panasonic DVD-S47S single-disc progressive-scan DVD player. It offers multiformat disc compatibility, enhanced virtual surround sound, as well as built-in decoding for Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound, and a slim profile of just over 2 inches high.

The DVD-S47S plays a variety of audio and video disc formats, including DVD-Audio (two-channel), DVD-Video, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, video CD, audio CD, and CD-R/RW. DVD-Audio discs, the new standard for super high-fidelity sound, provide multiple channel stereo, incredible storage capacity, and unique bonus materials not available on regular audio CDs. This player is also compatible with MP3 and WMA audio files and JPEG image files.

The HighMAT (High-Performance Media Access Technology) feature, codeveloped with Microsoft, is a digital-media standard that provides a dramatically improved method of storing, arranging, and playing back personal digital photo, music, and video collections on recordable discs such as CD-RW media.

Panasonic's Depth Enhancer noise reduction feature only processes an image's background, helping to leave the delicate details of the main subject intact and providing sharp images with incredible depth. The DVD-F87K uses a 54 MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter, which helps to reduce digital artifacts to give you a better picture.

When you play DVD movies encoded with DTS or Dolby Digital soundtracks, the built-in decoder processes all six channels of audio information (left front, right front, center, left-surround, right-surround, and low-frequency effects) without the need for an external decoder, and with the right audio components, lets you enjoy the amazing fidelity of discrete 5.1-channel surround sound. The decoder also allows you to control speaker configuration.

Tech Talk
Progressive scan: Progressive scanning, otherwise known as 480p ("p" for "progressive"), creates a picture signal with double the scan lines of a conventional interlaced picture, 480i ("i" for "interlaced"), to create a noticeably sharper image. Standard DVD players use interlaced scanning to produce a picture. Interlaced scanning combines two fields to generate a picture of 525 scan lines (480 of which are displayed). Your television projects an interlaced image by first scanning the 240 odd-numbered lines of one field (in 1/60th of a second), followed by the 240 even-numbered lines of the other field (in 1/60th of a second). A progressive video processor enables all 525 lines (480 of which are displayed) to be scanned at the exact same time. A television with 480p component inputs completely scans the entire image in 1/60th of a second, so it only takes one field to build one frame of video.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior Player
For under $100 you cannot beat this player. It is superior to the models available at the store for the same price such as the S27 but it also has S video and optical inputs. I tested the S25 on my Panasonic LCD TV after viewing DVDs on my non progressive scan Sony player. I saw differences in all three. The S47 had the clearest picture. You must change the setting to 480P from the defaul 480I. Also you can set the DVD to cinema mode, adjust what type of TV (LCD widescreen for example) and I got a perfect picture. Check it out.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most feature filled and durable products
I have three different panasonic DVD players, most of them several years old, and all of them subject to abuse by three kids who have stuck dvd's into the players that are covered with crud.

I have never had one single error like the person below claims. The same person seems to have reviewed almost every panasonic player with the same claims. the diction and wording of the cliams is identical. they are trying to make their problem seem like a common problem, which it is not.

As far as made in china being perjorative, that is laughable. Every dvd player is made in china, japan or korea and almost every one, including "japanese made" like sony have their DVD readers and motor components made in china.

I had a sony protable DVD player which had a motor failed after six months. They would not repair it and sent me a "refurbished" with many screen pixels dead, a cover that didn't close right and a left speaker with a hiss. That was $300.

Whenever you see a particullarly strident condemnation of a product on Amazon reviews , check the company's other products and see if you see the same exact language and similar date. I mean did this person actually own the 12 panasonic dvd players and home theaters he reviewed and claimed failed him? I doubt it.

If yo go to videohelp dot com, which reviews all the players, you will see the panasonic has outstanding reviews in dvd format compatability, audio, all the needed outputs AND robustness.

3-0 out of 5 stars Check out the H07 error problem with Panasonic DVD players
A number of different Panasonic DVD players get the dreaded H07 error code anywhere from 10 months to 1.5 years old. If you google for "panasonic dvd H07" you will see MANY people complaining about the problem. Be sure to check out the problem for this model before you buy.

I am a Panasonic DVD player owner and was happy with its performance until the dreaded H07 error occurred. It is only good for the trash now as repair costs more than buying a new unit. Many other users have had this problem with many different models of Panasonic DVD players made in China. Perhaps their chinese supplier did a shortcut that resulted in the many H07 errors. Just google and check it out. ... Read more
