          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!!!

          Comments about Panasonic Black DVD Player:

          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.

          Comments about Panasonic Black DVD Player:

          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.
