"DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!"1.0 starson by desertrat45
Pros: gives great headache
Cons: too many to list
Summary: I purchased this unit in early march 06, 1 week later I was online with tech support.This unit was rejecting all the media type that was recommended, with the exception of the ram disk. I had this thing lock up on me lot's of times, especially in the CD-R(JPEG)mode (we got lot's of photo's on discs). any way seemed that the only cure to get this thing up and running again was to literally yank the plug. 3 day's later I Finally recieved the e-mail back from Panasonic ,telling me to go to thier web site and download the latest firmware for my model, or take it in for repair at the nearest authorized service center.
i oppted for the download.
That was about the only thing that went smoothly on this unit.
It did start working correctly, for the next few month's, but now it has new problems, like recording to a disk, but not recognizing that the disk had infact been recorded and display's an error message (Err)or just simply states after pressing play, nothing has been recorded.
I droped a yard and a half on this unit and now want to use it as a clay pidgeon, it sucks and in my opinion gives Panasonic a black eye (like they care).
tech support sucks as well.
Today, I bought a SONY
