Pros picture and sound were fine
Cons With only moderate use, it completely fried in a matter of months
Summary I am a semi-professional musician, recording engineer and I was really excited to finally be able to affordably experience DVD-Audio. I also have a 57" Sony rear projection HDTV so picture quality is important. I was pleased with this players performance, especially for the price, but the fact that it just locked up with a DVD still inside was sickening. It went from working to completely broken with no warning whatsoever. I saw some other comments about a different model Panasonic that complained of the HO7 error. I didn't even get that. I wll never buy another Panasonic product, this was too disheartening. It is no surprise that this model is discontinued, but from other things I've read, this seems to be a Panasonic problem so I figured I would mention it.
Pros Great menu displays. Can play MP3s in random order. Your Sony can't do this.
Cons Software glitch causes annoying loud blip between MP3 files. This is also a problem with the Panasonic F87.
Pros I don't know the pros. It never worked.
Cons Never worked out of the box. The door would only only about two inches. eBuyer.com won't accept it as a return
Pros Looks great on my 90 inch projector, has numerous image adjustment options to fine tune to your display. 4:3 auto shrink works well for widescreen tvs. Variable zoom can make all movies fit 16x9 widescreen without black bars with the push of a remote butt
Cons depth enhancer works by blurring the background slightly to remove noise--it is evident on my big screen, however quick movements by foreground objects make blurry edges, and thinks like hair strands can become blurred into the background.I didn't really
Pros Great Performance ...
Cons ... when it works ! Broke after a few months. Repair costs almost as much as replacement. Will never buy another Panasonic DVD player again. Have moved to Sony, which doesn't perform as well (sometimes lags when layer change), but at least it still wo
