4-0 out of 5 stars So far so good.
This is the third cordless phone I have bought in a month. The first, a Motorola, had terrible echoes and sound. That one went back. The second, a GE, was fine, for the first three weeks. Then the answering machine shut down erasing all the messages every time I put the phone in the cradle. That one went back. I've only had the Panasonic a couple of days, cut so far so good. The sound is decent, though I would like the handset to be a little louder. But everything else works and I have to admit, the talking caller ID is pretty cool. Hopefully this one will keep working.
Update: A week later and still working. I just wanted to add, however, despite what the Amazon site says, this only has one handset and is not expandable.
One more cool feature I have found. You can subscribe to the Caller IQ serivce to get weather and other things on the phone. This is OK, but the best part is you can use the web site to import your Outlook contacts. Then you can check the ones you want on your phone and they are automatically downloaded to the address book in the phone. Saves lots of work. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Limited by single speed
It is a fine transcriber if you only use single speed tapes, but for those who want to tape at half speed to utilize tape space better (i.e. recording 180 minutes on a 90 minute tape), it's not the machine for you. You'll be stuck with a lot of tapes you can't transcribe.

5-0 out of 5 stars Straightforward and workmanlike machine
If you need to transcribe tapes for any reason at all you will save yourself hours of time and frustration by using a tape recorder/player intended for transcription - rather than your tape player alone. Panasonic has been making this good machine for more than a few years. To my knowledge it's the best value around.

The foot pedal is essential and easy to use, and allows you to stop, start, and back up your tape without taking your hands off your keyboard. The speaker is good, there is a tone adjustment, and in addition a headset (and this one is comfortable to wear) enables quiet transcribing - and improved intelligibility, because the sound of your keys going a mile a minute won't interfere with your hearing your taped material. Importantly, there is a control lever for tape speed - for "variable speech control," so that you can play your tape a bit slower, or faster (which you sometimes need, too).

There is a mic and a remote jack, and fast forward and fast reverse. A tape counter - your odometer - is helpful. Different little lights glow when you're taping, recording, when the machine is on. This is a straightforward, simple, and gimmickless machine that is very nicely put together. It measures a neat and tidy 8 by 10 inches, and packs up simply and with no fanfare. Indispensible - if you need to transcribe tapes. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Get ready for a night out at the movies--in your own home--with Panasonic's 30-inch widescreen CT-30WX54 HDTV-ready set. You'll get brilliant, high-resolution from the PureFlat screen and enjoy movies the way they were meant to be seen in wide 16:9 aspect ratio. The CT-30WX54 also features an HDMI input, digital velocity scan modulation, picture-in-picture functionality (PIP), a motion-adaptive 3D comb filter, two HD component-video inputs, four A/V inputs (one in front), and three S-video inputs.

Panasonic's PureFlat screen minimizes reflections and distortion, so you can enjoy distraction-free TV viewing no matter where you sit in the room. The fine-pitch screen provides sharp images and excellent detail. To maximize picture quality, Panasonic's LCD TVs incorporate several video enhancement features. The motion-adaptive digital comb filter prevents any two lines with different colors from being processed together in the comb filter at the same time, minimizing any "hanging dots" in the image. With digital velocity scan modulation, advanced circuitry along the neck of the CRT senses shifts from black to white in the video signal. The black and white portions of the signal are sped up and slowed down, respectively, resulting in improved transitions.

The 16:9 aspect ratio, consistent with the shape of cinema screens as well as the HDTV broadcast format, enables viewers to enjoy the full impact of a film as its director originally intended. The screen also accommodates pan and scan or letterbox formats recorded at the 4:3 aspect ratio.

This set has a built-in 181-channel tuner, though you'll need an optional HDTV tuner to receive high-definition broadcasts. The two built-in speakers (15 watts apiece) provide simulated surround sound and BBE high-definition audio enhancement, which helps restore the dynamic range of musical passages to help provide a more natural sound.

The CT-32SL14 has 4 composite A/V inputs (1 front), 3 S-video inputs (1 front), 2 component-video inputs, 1 RF, 1 headphone jack. It adds an HDMI connection, providing high-quality, uncompressed digital audio/video signal transmission.

Tech Talk
Aspect ratio: The aspect ratio refers to the shape of the video image. Traditional television has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is almost square in appearance. Digital television has either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio. A 16:9 aspect ratio is widescreen and appears rectangular, which looks more like a movie screen, filling more of the viewer's field of vision for a more lifelike viewing experience.

HDMI-HDCP interface: HDMI is a new standard digital connection between A/V devices, such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver, and a digital television. HDMI offers exceptional video and audio quality with a single quick-disconnect connector. It supports multichannel digital audio transmissions and component-video color spacing for true rendering of HD video. HDMI supports the HDCP copy protection standard, allowing transmission of copy-protected digital content to your display.

Amazon.com Product Description

Even if your living room is the size of a shoe box, you can still enjoy versatile entertainment performance from Panasonic's PV-DF2004, which crams a 20-inch TV and a full-featured DVD player and hi-fi VCR into a single compact and attractive unit. Video capabilities include VHS, DVD-Video, and audio CD playback. The set's PureFlat picture tube delivers a distortion-free picture from corner to corner with precise, brilliant color reproduction and extraordinary clarity. Front and rear A/V input jacks allow easy connection to other home theater components like receivers or decoders, camcorders, and video games.

The DVD player delivers high-resolution video images and high-quality audio. It's equipped with Dolby Digital and DTS outputs so you can connect it to your surround-decoding audio/video receiver and surround speaker system for mind-blowing home theater sound. Those lacking the room or the budget for a full surround system can still enjoy rich-sounding movie soundtracks, thanks to Panasonic's simulated surround-sound effect, which uses the TV's built-in stereo speakers. Additional DVD features include picture zoom, auto switching field/frame still, and multi-language, multi-angle footage.

The set's four-head VCR comes equipped with auto clock set, which uses the Extended Data Service signal carried by many PBS stations to set the time. A back-up system automatically resets the time and date within 24 hours of a power outage.

Panasonic has imbued the PV-DF2004 with its Ready-to-Play feature: as soon as you plug it in the combo will automatically sets its clock and local TV channels.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
Awesome unit!I just purchased the Panasonic DVD-LX9 for myself for use while traveling (if you purchase one before March 26 of 2005, Panasonic has a rebate form at their website for a free carrying case and car/airplane adapter)....It is a great unit!I work in the television industry, and I like to have video that looks gooood!This unit does not disappoint!! The picture is incredible, and the colors are brilliant. With 3 weeks of ownership under my belt, the only complaint I have is that the battery supplied with the unit only holds a 2 - 2.5 hour charge. A bit frustrating when using it this past weekend to help keep our 16 month old occupied (with Baby Einstein DVDs) during a 9 hour car ride.A quick stop to my favorite chain electronics store, and $13 later I had a cigarette lighter power adapter, and we were good to go! The docking station that comes with the unit is nice but not really a necessitity...I have no complaints with that either, I didn't really even need it, but I was able to get the model with the docking station for less than the DVD-LX8. I'd give the unit 4.5 stars, but that isn't an otion.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best there is!
I wanted to buy my wife a portable DVD player and reviewed several models to include "hands-on" demos and the quality of the Panasonic easily beats them all.The number one feature to consider, of course, is picture quality and the LA-9 mimics a HD picture --truly amazing for such a small unit.The LA-9 is pricy but well worth the cost.We often take plane trips lasting 3-5 hours so it got even pricier as we also bought the optional battery pack for longer play and sound cancelling earphones.The cradle is a big plus as we use it to play DVDs through our kitchen TV.All in all, a VERY flexible unit with features galore for either travel or at-home use.If you can afford it, this is the one to get.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! this thing does it all
Had this unit for two weeks and it is great.It plays all types of media list in description on panasonic.com PLUS DVD-RW.I have a sony recorder RDR-GX7 (great recorder), and it records dvd-rw.The LX9 Plays it without problems even though the manuel says it does not it does.
picture quality is great and many menu features which help tweek picture.I have not used it on battery long enough to determine how long it last but it comes with a cord so use it instead.
music cd's work great, cdr and cdrw with mp3s only.It does not take long to load up as some reviews added.
overall another qualitly product from panasonic.I highly recommond.
I used the external speakers and must admit they are pretty good.a little flimsly but sound wise pretty good.
the internal speakers are loud enough however.
if you want a unit that plays mostly any disk out there, you cant go wrong with the panasonic LX-9

Amazon.com Product Description

Spin your commercial CDs, your homemade music CDs of almost any stripe with Sony's versatile, full-circle D-NS505 S2 Sports-styled Walkman portable CD player. Designed for rugged outdoor use, the player features active control playback operation so you can make changes to your program literally while you're on the run. Sony's "h.ear" clip-on headphones are designed for streamlined comfort.

Skip-Free G-Protection technology boosts the laser pickup's shock protection to minimize read errors that would otherwise interrupt your music, providing quick recovery from both horizontal and vertical shocks. The D-NS505's water-resistant body and heat-resistant lid helps protect it against the elements, with rubber gaskets, bushings, and splash-resistant seals that help keep out water, moisture, and dirt.

Playback options include 32-track programming, repeat (track, disc, or program), random play, and--thanks to Sony's great work in DSP efficiency--more than 75 hours of ATRAC3plus CD or more than 50 hours of audio CD playback from 2 AA batteries (not included).

The D-NS505's 2-line dot-matrix display is built right into its handstrap, offering full ID3 tag recognition, and bookmark playback (which lets you program your favorite songs from multiple CDs and play them back at the touch of a button). CD Text support displays artist and title information with compatible commercial audio CDs.

The player comes bundled with Sony's SonicStage CD Simple Burner software. Compatible with ID3 tagging and most CD burners, this application transfers songs from CDs or MP3 music files from your PC's hard drive and burns them to recordable CDs using ATRAC3plus compression.

ATRAC3plus is a high-quality audio-compression technology that reduces the size of digital audio files while preserving much of a track's original sound quality (similar in concept to MP3 or Dolby Digital sound formats). With ATRAC3plus, music can be burned and compressed at 132, 105, 66, 64, or even 48 kbps (kilobits per second), letting you select the right balance between fidelity and storage space (you'll get around 490 songs per disc at 48 kbps).

Digital Mega Bass Sound boosts your music's low end without high clarity and low distortion, and there's also a built-in equalizer with 3 preset curves and 1 customizable setting. Sony's automatic volume limiter system (AVLS) conserves batteries--and guards your hearing--by capping your listening level at either of two settings. You can hook the player up with your home system through an optional analog stereo "Y" interconnect.

The player also works with an optional AC/DC 4.5V power adapter (AC-E45HG or -E45A).

Amazon.com Product Description

Panasonic's SC-PM19S executive microsystem offers style and power, housing 70 watts per channel in its sleek, wood-and-silver casing. The SC-PM19S includes a single-well cassette recorder and a five-CD changer with Panasonic's exclusive MASH (multi-stage noise shaping technology) 1-bit digital-to-analog converter for clear, accurate sound reproduction. And the system plays not only prerecorded CDs but home-brewed CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and it's compatible with MP3 digital audio files. It's also available in a silver/black finish.

To ensure powerful, clear, and virtually distortion-free audio, the system features a bi-amplified, biwired configuration, which splits the amplifier's labor to independently power each speaker driver for more efficient power usage. Super Sound EQ boosts the low, medium, and high frequencies at the touch of a button, and four preset equalizer curves are also included.

Other features include a drift-free, digital-synthesized tuner with 30-station (15 FM, 15 AM) presets, TPS (Tape Program Sensor, which lets you search forward or backward across up to nine cassette songs), detachable speaker grilles (in case you prefer the look of naked tweeters and woofers), and a multifunction remote control.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing system for the price!
Don't look any further if you are looking for a compact system w/ quality sound. It doesn't pay spending an extra $250 for an Onkyo. The bass is impressive and the tones clear and crisp. The 5 disc changer is quiet & effective. This unit would still be a good value @ $300. Just buy it, you'll be happy that you did. Gee, I should get paid for this type of promo.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great item
I'm no pro regarding electronics, so this review is for other amateurs like me. I'm really pleased with this purchase. This little unit has a big, rich sound that fills up my large office. It has lots of features, which aren't too tough to figure out. When I ordered the unit, I didn't even realize it plays MP3 files directly, which means you can put more than 200 songs on a CD. The remote works nicely, even at an angle to the unit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good sound, good value
Bought this for my bathroom and I'm very pleased with the sound and functionality. I specifically went for this model because it will play MP3s as long as the file ends with .MP3 (I noticed another major brand that will only accept MP3s using their own sofware and needing Windows 2000 or ME... this Panasonic model takes older MP3 discs). I have one gripe and it's significant to me. You can't play your MP3s in shuffle/random mode. That REALLY stinks when you have a 200 song mix. Random only works with normal CD's.

Sound is beefy and just about right for a smaller room.

5-0 out of 5 stars great value & performance
Well, for the price, I don't think you can go far wrong... you get a lot of bang for your buck. The system's appeareance is clean and cool looking, it has a small footprint, and the remote, though small and a little cluttered, doesn't take long to get used to.

Most importantly it sounds just great! The speakers are good, and again, for the reasonable price, it produces better sound than I expected. CDs play beautifully, there's a few EQs to choose from, and separate bass/treble settings. The radio is good as far as i can tell, and I'm sure tapes (remember those?) play just great. Haven't tested MP3 yet, but like the way it reads tags and displays them - a cool feature for sure.

Overall, this is a perfect little system for my apartment and I'm happy with Panasonic quality yet again.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's deep. (Physically that is...)
Fully concur with other reviewers... great sound, great features and great price. However, I was most surprised to find that the unit is almost 15 inches deep. (Should have read the specs because the picture doesn't reveal this.) If you're planning to locate the unit on a book case or a hall table, it will stick out like a sore thumb. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Panasonic's DMR-E55K DVD player/recorder grants unprecedented recording time on double-sided 9.4 GB recordable DVDs--up to 16 hours, or 8 hours per side (and on standard 4.7 GB discs, in EP mode). The DMR-E55K's joint support of DVD-RAM and DVD-R media provides the best of both worlds: DVD-R for the highest compatibility (letting you share video recordings with virtually anyone with a DVD player) and DVD-RAM (for rewritability and benefits like TimeSlip, chasing playback, and simultaneous play and record). DVD-RAM offers the perfect method for recording and rerecording favorite programs--over 100,000 times on the same disc. Using DVD-RAM, you can also edit your videos on a multimedia computer with video editing/production software.

You can take DVD-RAM discs out of their protective cartridges and play them on PCs equipped with a 4.7 GB/9.4 GB DVD-RAM drive or DVD-ROM drive that's compatible with 4.7 GB/9.4 GB DVD-RAM. In addition to an attractive price tag, the feature-rich DMR-E55K offers the benefits of progressive-scan video playback (for use with high-definition and HD-ready TVs), MP3 CD playback, enhanced time-shifting, and instant access times.

With instant recording onto a DVD disc, there's no need to have to find blank space, as with a VHS tape. Just press record and the unit will automatically find space on the disc, much like a computer's disk drive. Panasonic's Time Slip feature lets you replay a scene recorded earlier while a program is still in progress, without disrupting the recording process. And chasing playback lets you watch from the beginning a show whose recording is still in progress.

You can easily transfer your favorite VHS tape recordings to space-saving discs. Personal movie libraries and family videos can be archived, preserved, easily cataloged and accessed, and even edited right from the disc.

Input TBC (time base corrector) removes jitter from the input signal, while 3D Y/C separation circuitry precisely separates the luminance (Y) and chrominance (C) portions of the video signal to minimize dot crawl and color smearing caused by interference between the video signal's Y and C color subcomponents. These functions are particularly effective when recording from analog video sources such as a conventional VCR and camcorder. Combined with the 3D DNR applied during playback, the result can be a surprising restoration of image quality from old videocassettes.

Connections include component-, composite-, and S-video outputs, multiple composite- and S-video inputs, an optical digital-audio output for surround-sound passthrough to a compatible (Dolby Digital/DTS 5.1) audio/video surround receiver, and RCA stereo analog audio inputs.

Progressive Scanning
Progressive scanning, otherwise known as 480P (p=progressive), creates a picture signal with double the scan lines of a conventional interlaced picture, 480I (I=interlaced), to create a noticeably sharper image. The 480P image offers higher picture resolution and eliminates virtually all motion artifacts. Even on large screens, the progressive scan lines are barely noticeable and picture flickering is greatly reduced, so you can enjoy extended viewing without eye fatigue. There are also many advantages to progressive conversion. Progressive-scan DVD players can handle both progressive and conventional interlaced video.

The Benefits of Progressive Vs. Interlaced Scanning

Standard DVD-Video 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). So, it takes two fields to build one frame of video.

Progressive-scan DVD players have a progressive video processor, which enables all 525 lines (480 of which are displayed) to be scanned at the exact same time. A television with 480P component inputs can completely scan the entire image in 1/60th of a second, so it only takes one field to build one frame of video. The result is a smoother and sharper picture, with high resolution and no motion artifacts.

5-0 out of 5 stars Looking to replace that old VCR
If you are looking for a DVD Recorder to replace that old VCR and want up to 8 hours of continious recording time then this is the unit to get until Blue Lasers hit the market in a couple of years. With the 9.4 GHz RAM disks (rewriteable) you can record up to 16 hours (double sided) or 8 hours per side. Once I got past the AUTO SETUP problem I was able to set up the unit with very little trouble. After setting the basic setup functions (timer and channels) I was able to figure out the recording features within a couple of minutes. Once you view the recorded program you can erase it in a matter of seconds. The timer program featrure also allows you to program upto 16 programs, not like the usually 8 with a VCR. The only drawback to this unit and others on the market today is not being able to add more than one of these to my system and control multiple units with just one remote as I was able to do with three Sony VCRs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Record DVDs as easy as recording VHS
I bought this recorder a month ago and have recorded 20+ TV shows and a few movies on it. I was a little skeptical about this device at first, as I read many reviews about how DVD recorders seem to eat through DVD discs with mis rights and have other problems. However, this recorder has worked flawlessly so far. I have been recording on cheap Imation DVD-R discs without a problem.

I have recorded in the 2 hour and 4 hour formats. The 4 hour format is actually much better quality than I expected. So much, that I have been recording TV shows (Sopranos, Deadwood, Elmo, etc.) in this mode for later viewing.

I do have two minor dissappointments. 1) the technical specification stated that this unit has both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs. This is not true. It only has an optical digital audio output. This is a problem for me, as I don't have enough optical inputs on my receiver and have a coaxial connection to spare. 2) the recording schedule feature is a bit odd in that it requires you to turn off the recorder to record a scheduled program. This is a bit annoying, as I'd like to watch the event when it comes up. Because of this, I have to wait for the recorder to start recording before I can watch TV through the DVD recorder.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Buy
This was a very good thing to get. i just wish that there were 2 of me .it takes along time to get all of my old tapes on DVD. good price but the only thing is that it is too picky about what kinds of blank disc it will record to.you have to be carefull what kinds of blank disc to buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, and great price
Unlike some lesser brandnames, this Panasonic DVD recorder actually works. I've heard that with some other brands, you can get failed burning sessions, which would waste your blank DVD media. Also, since this Panasonic uses the DVD-R ("dash" or "minus" format) instead of DVD+R ("plus" format), the discs you burn are compatible with *more* DVD players. For my money, I'd stick with DVD-R all the way. Also, be sure to get high-quality blank discs for better recording quality and longer shelf lives.

(Ignore the DVD-RAM format. No DVD player I know of except some Panasonic models can read DVD-RAM.)

I'm really happy with the great build quality and great price I got with this model. I didn't need one of those Panasonic models with a built-in hard drive, so I saved money. But if you want TiVo-like capabilities, check out those HD-equipped models.

The best virtue of this Panasonic is it does a great job at what it's supposed to do. I'm sure better models are already in the channel, so I'd say if you can wait a bit longer, wait a bit longer. Otherwise, the Panasonic is your best bet for value, quality, and durability.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT recorder in the low price class
I'm overall very pleased with the picture quality. The variable bit rate encoding is just terrific and the source filtering does quite a good job on ugly VHS tape sources. An especially useful feature is an adjustable quality mode. You tell it how long, like a 2 hour 18 minute movie, and it records with the maximum quality that will just fill the disk. The ability to edit when using DVD-R media is extreemly limited. All disks get a standard menu format with slots for half a dozen titles per page. You can set the preview thumbnail and the title name. On DVD-R media you can't set chapters or edit out anything (like commercials). Chapters are automatically created about on 5 minute boundries, or if you press pause during recording. A title is created each time you press record. After recording a DVD-R, you need to run a finalization process which makes the disk compatable with most DVD players and prevents any further writing. You can set the disk, before finalizing, to play the first title, bypassing the menu (which may only have one title on it). The device does not write to DVD-RW, DVD+R or DVD+RW media. DVD-RAM media (either with or without a protective case) can be used, and greatly expands the editing capability. Unfortunatly DVD-RAM media is not supported by most DVD players, although it did work in another fairly new Panasonic DVD player I own. DVD-RAM also does not work in many (most?) computer DVD drives. DVD-RAM does allow better than VCR functionality though, but does cost more than a VHS tape (but has better quality that a S-VHS tape). Using DVD-RAM media, it's super easy to cut out commercials or other undesirable material. You can also make playlists which allow assembling sequences of scenes into a new virtual title. You can set scene boundries very easily, just play the video and hit a button on the remote. Using pause/slow allows fairly accurate scene positioning. I can also verify the copy protection system prevented recording when trying to record from a commercial DVD played in another DVD player as a source. This was the case for both DVD-R and the DVD-RAM media I used. Some brands of DVD-RAM are supposed to allow a single copy if the original content producer allowed it, but don't know how you can tell if this should be allowed from a specific source. I record most things from a 3 year old DirecTV TIVO source, instead of using my VCR. If you need to edit content to put on DVD-R media, this is not the machine to get. For serious editing, I use a computer. For cutting out commercial from a weekly TV series you want to keep, one of the DVD recorders with a hard disk might be a better choice, as I assume you can edit before writing to a DVD-R. Tests I've read say DVD-R media is the most compatable with DVD players, so think DVD-R media is the one to use. I have 20 year old VHS tapes, so assume I will collect DVD-R's for 20 years. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The amazingly small, ultra-slim, and lightweight Panasonic SVAV50 is ready to capture your favorite moments in digital video and still photos wherever you roam. You can also use the SVAV50 as a digital audio player, voice recorder, and image viewer through your TV (using the included cradle). The SVAV50 is so small because it uses no tape--all video, images, and audio are stored on a tiny Secure Digital (SD) memory card. It also features 2-megapixel digital still resolution, 2-inch flip-and-twist LCD for reviewing your video and photos, and 2.5x digital zoom. This model (SVAV50A) comes in blue, but the SVAV50 is also available in silver (SVAV50S).

Video and Still Optics
Using the MPEG4 format, the SVAV25 saves video to Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards (an 8 MB SD card is included). With the small size of MPEG4 files--featuring resolution modes of either 320 x 240 or 176 x 144--you can easily post video to your Web site or send files to friends and family via e-mail.

The D-snap cradle is equipped with an A/V terminal that makes it easy to connect to a TV or VCR and record TV programs onto an SD card. Using the SVAV50 for playback, you can watch the news, a movie, or other programs just about anywhere.

The following shows the approximate amount of continuous video that can be recorded on several sizes of SD memory card (including larger optional cards):

  • Super Fine (320 x 240, 1 Mbps): 0.9 minutes (included 8 MB card), 7 minutes (64 MB card), 15 minutes (128 MB card)
  • Fine (320 x 240, 420 Kbps): 2 minutes (included 8 MB card), 17 minutes (64 MB card), 35 minutes (128 MB card)
  • Normal (176 x 144, 300 Kbps): 2.5 minutes (included 8 MB card), 25 minutes (64 MB card), 50 minutes (128 MB card)
  • Economy (176 x 144, 100 Kbps): 8 minutes (included 8 MB card), 70 minutes (64 MB card), 150 minutes (128 MB card)

The SVAV50 has a 1/3.2-inch CCD for a 2-megapixel resolution--capturing enough image data for print enlargements up to 8 x 10 inches. It features1600 x 1200 (2 MP), 1280 x 960 (1 MP), and 640 x 480 (VGA--great for sending in e-mail) resolution modes. You can zoom in on subjects using the 2.5x digital zoom.

Audio
In addition to its motion and still image capability, the SVAV50 can also be used as a digital audio player--just slip in an SD card loaded with tunes and listen via the included earphones. It's compatible with MP3 and AAC audio files. And with the built-in microphone (monaural), you can easily record voice memos, lectures, interviews, and reminders to the SD card.

BAD / CONS --
- Complicated
- Buttons are TOO small
- Hard to focus -- takes bad still pictures

4-0 out of 5 stars One Nifty Little Gadget
The trouble with most combination devices is that they try to do too much, and thus end up doing lots of things poorly. With the D-Snap 50, Panasonic has avoided this all too common design flaw... mostly.

The D-Snap 50 is an excellent gadget for professionals on the go, combining a two megapixel video camera, a digital voice recorder, and an MP3 player all into a package smaller and lighter than a pack of cigarettes. The bundled software is complete (if unexceptional) and the controls are fairly intuitive - most people familiar with digital cameras should be able to master the basics in a few minutes of use.

Nonetheless, there are a few questions I'd like to ask the D-Snap engineering team. First, did you intend for me to amputate my right index finger in order to take a decent picture? Second, just how many songs, memos, pictures, and videos do you expect me to fit on a measly 8 megabyte memory card? Third, why so many different quality settings for images when only Superfine (or Fine and big) is even good enough for email? Finally, would Macintosh support have killed you?

Despite these grievances, this is a great buy for a select target audience, such as people considering the Palm Zire 71 that prefer to organize their thoughts using spoken words instead of text. With a little practice - and a 256 MB or 512 MB Secure Digital Card - the D-Snap's annoyances will quickly fade. Three-and-a-half stars now, four when the price comes down a little. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Gimpier than its predecessor
I stand behind my earlier review of this much used, highly practical item. It stays with me day and night--for playing and recording (with a Sony stereo add-on mic). Count it a small but admittedly irritating matter that this model does have a minor problem compared to its predecessor: the plastic feet in the base are not large and stable enough to prevent the unit from constantly toppling over. It will stand up on its own providing you're willing to "balance" it and keep the cat away from any adjacent surfaces. On the other hand, despite the number of times the unit has rolled over, the tape mechanism keeps rolling right along.

4-0 out of 5 stars decent cassette recorder
I bought this cassette recorder based on the reviews of other customers. I was looking for a cassette recorder with accurate pitch duplication.
I had also ordered two Sony WM-GX221 Walkmans which both were off more than 30 cents sharp...and off by the same amount.
The Panasonic was a little less off (less than 30 cents sharp)
so I decided to keep the Panasonic.
If anyone finds a walkman sized cassette recorder with better pitch accuracy, please let me know. it's been really difficult to find something better than the old Sony walkmans that I had before (which Sony no longer manufactures).

4-0 out of 5 stars Nifty little portable stereo!
I bought the Panasonic RQ-A220 Cassette Player/Recorder after working part-time at a Radio Shack. Of all the things in the store, I thought this portable recorder was one of the niftiest things I saw there.

For months, I wanted to transfer my music cassettes to my Mac after endlessly trying to find CDs or even MP3s over the net of the many rare songs I love (and have owned for years) but couldn't find anywhere. When I saw this cassette player/recorder, I thought "Bingo!". I bought a Y adapter, connected the single stereo plug to the RQ-A220 and the two RCA ends to the back of my Mac (which has RCA and S-video connections) and used a freeware called Coaster (it creates AIFF files. It's for Mac OS 9 only) and after converting the AIFF tracks with iTunes, voila, instant MP3s of my favorite music. Coaster is extremely easy to use and it's free! The sound from my cassettes with the RQ-A220 is CD quality. In fact, the songs sound better than those I ripped from my CDs.

The RQ-A220 almost has everything: it's a voice recorder. You can connect a stereo microphone to it if the built-in microphone doesn't cut it. It's a radio. It plays cassettes. It can record off the radio or another source (if you have the right cables of course). It has three tiny built-in speakers, which is what initially caught my attention. And included with the recorder is a set of stereo headphones. When you listen to music with it (or when I connect the Y adapter to the headphone input), you can listen to music as is or with Extra Bass System, which gives a better sounding quality. I use the XBS option when I make my MP3s.

The sound from the three speakers is not super high quality but it's surprisingly good nonetheless, certainly for a product that fits in the palm of a hand. Oddly enough, of all the types of music, classical music and jazz sounds the best when listening to it through the three speakers, more so than pop (just good) or techno music (bad). And the speakers are perfect for listening to sports broadcast or any kind of talk radio.

There are two caveats about the RQ-A220: finding and keeping a radio channel is sometimes difficult because of the sensitivity of the tuner dial. And there's no 3v adapter to plug-in the cassette player/recorder to a wall socket when I need to work with it for long periods of time and batteries just ain't enough. I bought a 3v adapter (at Radio Shack, of course), so this problem was quickly solved but I still wish the adapter came with the recorder. As for the radio, well, a digital radio would have been better. If the RQ-A220 came with a digital tuner, I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4.

Keep this in mind: you can buy the RX-D20 boombox from Panasonic for almost the same price and you have a digital radio, a CD player with the RX-D20 and better speakers (we used the RX-D20 for our radio at the store and the sound from it was good). But you can't carry a boombox in your pocket or purse, so one has to pay a little extra for a more compact product.

All in all, I like this tiny stereo player/recorder. It's beautifully designed and the sound quality from it is excellent.

*BTW, the manufacturer specifically states on the product that it was built not in China, but Taiwan. Arf!

5-0 out of 5 stars cassette ---> CD
I purchased this to convert my taped records/cassettes to CD. So far, it has worked very well. I use Audio Cleaning Lab 2004 to import the music onto my computer and clean the tracks before burning to CD. It's smaller than I thought it would be - and I wish it had digital radio - but I think it's better than a tape deck. Sound quality is good. Use rechargeable batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unique and Supremely Useful
I was afraid Panasonic would phase this item out. Like their SL-PH270, a portable CD player with built-in speakers, this is a pocket-sized device for musicians and listeners on the go who don't carry an MP-3 library and prefer not to be tied to headphones (as a result I use it frequently and ubiquitously). Moreover, it's the only model of its type that features stereo recording and reproduction, making it suitable for recording live music. Granted, the playback has little separation or bass, but the sound is still superior to comparable monophonic models, whose use is primarily for dictation.

For this latest model, Panasonic has sacrificed a bit of compactness to sound quality (there's an extra speaker). I preferred the lighter, smaller model, though the thing still easily fits in a jacket pocket.

Be forewarned that, though the machine will record radio broadcasts, the tuner's poor selectivity and sensitivity limit such use unless the headphones, which serve double-duty as an antenna, are plugged in. Also, contrary to Amazon's description, this machine doe not have auto-reverse. Finally, it's curious that Panasonic would produce a miniature cassette recorder capable of recording in stereo (through the stereo input) but then offer no microphone, even as an optional accessory (the on-board mic is strictly for mono recording). I solved that problem by purchasing the mini-stereo mic made by Sony (expect to spend more than the cost of the machine). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars PHENOMENAL
This CD/DVD system is one of the best out there. The sound is just awesome. It has HDCD capability, so CDs recorded in 20 bits rather than 16, sound like they are being played live right in front of you! It has a manual equalizer so you can change bass and treble to just how you like. The bass and treble both sound great. The speakers have virtually no excess noise. The system is compact and rather light so it will fit in tight spaces. Most of the controls are on the remote control, keeping the face of the console clean looking. I haven't hooked it to a TV or computer yet but I expect it to perform just as well. This is something you should really look into if you have the money, instead of buying an ugly, bulky stereo.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great system for the price paid
I was looking for a mini system with good sound and DVD playback and found it. The sound is great. It has all the features you can expect. Being able to have 5 CD/DVD/MP3 is very useful. It is just what you need if you want value for your money. Even the speakers are very good and solid. It even shows on the TV screen all details of CD/MP3.
Panasonic did a good job with coming up with a system like this.
The only thing i am waiting for is for Panasonic to come with a subwoofer to add to this system. That will be great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah....what he said :)
This thing is worth 6 stars. I don't think I've ever seen a more bang-for-the-buck piece of electronics gear. IMHO, the best feature wasn't touched on by lazer's great review.

I was kind of taken aback by the lack of MP3 display on the front panel (the lesser panasonics do)--until I hooked it up to a TV. Wow--forget the 8 character lousy component DVD players...this has a full description layout for both MP3 and even regular CDs (that's what that option for CD-Text means). If you can afford it, your search ends right here. Period.

From dizzying features, build-quality, looks and sound, nothing can touch this--no, not the new similar JVC 77u either (and I'm a big JVC mini fan). For comparison in the Panasonic line, the difference between this and the lesser SC-EN7 is like a Yugo vs a Ferrari. Just buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic won me back...
For years I've avoided panasonic (bad previous history with the company's products), but this unit won me back. I was in the market for a small stereo system for my home gym room. I didn't want something overly boomy with thumping bass, or the opposite - no bass. I also am very picky with my sound. So there began my search.

I knew I had to get just the right one to have as close to perfect sound reproduction as possible. I looked at Sony's offerings and liked them, except for the lack of ability to customize the sound (to tweak it to perfection). One thing I absolutely hate is preset EQ settings. They are a fine starting point, but I have yet to find any good preset EQ (except none or clear perhaps). This stereo has the option to have manual sound equalizer (bass and treble controls)...nice touch!

When I heard this unit, I thought the sound was full, even and gorgeous! Not overly boomy/bassy, but very accurate sound reproduction. This could possibly be due to the 4 wires connecting each speaker to the stereo system (a separate pair each for the tweaters and the woofer in each speaker).

The true selling point of this unit was the fact it has a 5 CD/DVD changer! Component output, digital out for expansion, an AUX input, MP3/WMA playback, the list goes on and on. After finding the sound quality I wanted, it was time for considering looks and this unit is exquisite! The wood (wood-like) cabinets are a rich warm color and the silver speaker surrounds are gorgeous. I've left the speaker grills off, and the entire set looks wonderful. DVD playback has great quality, nice colors, etc - I have it hooked up to an LCD TV which hangs in that room.

...and sure, the price sounds expensive, but isn't quality worth the price? I have a feeling this will last me a long time (durability wise).

The only negative point I can find about this unit is the CD tray mechanism and the lack of controls from the front. Its nice, and I'm sure very well thought-out and designed (and has been used on all of the lesser panasonic micro stereo systems)....but the trays give a little too easily. I'm gentle with my equipment and am sure I won't have problems, but seriously look at those trays before considering this unit for a household with children who might not be so gentle. The controls are almost all from the remote, which I don't mind - but it makes testing in the store a pain since there was no remote where I bought it...

The brushed metal on the front and blue lighting effects make for a gorgeous unit. Go listen to this at the store - I think you'll really enjoy what you hear. Panasonic made a great one here! ... Read more
