        Comments about Panasonic Black DVD Player:

        I've given up spending more than $100 on a DVD player. the firmware is practically outdated by the time it reaches stores shelves. My standard is now paying for a basic DVD player, hook it up to my home theatre system and let that system bring me the features/sounds. This panasonic DVD is outstanding. I rent a lot of DVD, Netflix, local library - those DVD's look like they've been thrown across floors, this DVD player flawlessly plays through scratches, blemishes with no squiggles, freeze screen, or shot pixels. I love thati t plays DVD-R and updated video files formats. It does have a coaxial hook up for receivers, it does not have fiber optic. Check you TV connection - if you only have a S-Video line for your DVD, make sure you purchase a S-Video to RCA cable to install DVD player. Thanks Panasonic for offering great little DVD player during this recession in our country. Makes paying for this not hurt so bad.

          This unit is for a bedroom. It is great for this purpose. I wouldn't put it as the certerpiece of my home theater system, but it does exactly what I need it to do, play movies.

            I use the DVD player frequently. It has great picture quality, you can play DVD's on it, from store bought to burned, listen CD's the same as DVDs, it's got everything and it's Energy Star compatible, which means I save a bit on my energy bill. I recommend this product and will buy from ABT in the future!!!

            We use this on our 42" lcd tv. It is easy to operate and makes a beautiful picture. The player is very thin and seems easy to break, but we enjoy this player and are careful with it. It has been about a month that we've had this player, but we've yet to experience any problems with it.

            I thought this product would have the Viera link that comes with the Panasonic Plasma TV that I own. It does not. During movies, it seems to sometimes make "loud" noises as it revolves the DVD.
