    Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Player:

    I already own a Panasonic DVR and Player. I needed another player capable of playing DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs to stay compatible. I've really pounded the units I have and they are totally reliable, so naturally I ordered another Panasonic. This was my first purchase from ABT[...]

        Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Player:

        This is a great player. Quite a few advanced adjustments available to make the picture fit your equipment perfectly. Set up is not fool-proof, but the features available are fantastic if you study the machine a little bit and get it set up correctly. With blu-ray players becoming popular, will this be the last DVD player Panasonic produces? Regardless, until Netflix rents blu-ray's at the same price as their DVD's, I'm very happy to own and use this player.

        Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Player:

        Sales person was very knowledgeable about this DVD Plyaer. It arrived in 3 days and was very easy to set up and use. It makes all my DVD movies look better than a standard DVD Player. You need to use an HDMI connector cord to get the full 1080p.

            This Panasonic DVD player works great with my Panasonic 42" Plasma TV. It is easy to set up and use. It produces a beautiful clear picture on my DVD movies. It is a very thin attractive design that easily fits my component space on my TV stand. The remote control is very easy to use.

              Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Player:

              I love it, it gives a good clear sound. But the color code for the speakers are wrong, three of my speakers won't do anything so I played around with them, they will work in certain jacks but not the ones where they are supposed to go. I don't know how to fix it either. So I have only three of the six speakers working that came with Hopefully I will figure it out on my own.
