  • Panasonic DVD-S54k
    I have both the Pan DMR-ES15 DVD recorder and the DVD-S97 player. I wanted another one of either model to use in a different room but both have been discontinued. It seems like the DVD-S54 is the only player that Panasonic makes now so my mind was made up for me.The unit seems to work fine so far and has a hell of a lot of features that I'll never use however the remote does not have the capability to also operate the TV controls so you have to have both the remotes close at hand to use this unit. That taken into consideration It does seem like a lot of quality for the price. I was really sorry that they discontinued the DMR-ES15 recorder.It is much better than either the Samsung I first had and the Sony RDR-GXD455 recorder I got for a back up unit after buying the DMR-ES15. The more I get into this electronics gear the more faith I put into the Panasonic brand....more info
  • This Unit Plays DVD RAM Disks
    A couple of years ago I purchased a Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E75V so that I could covert my old VHS movies to DVDs. There are not too many DVD players on the market (AT A REASONABLE PRICE) that will play RAM discs, and most of my movies are recorded on RAMs. The only other "reasonable" one I did find (at SAMS CLUB) cost more than twice as much as this one. That's what lead to this purchase.
    After reading the instructions this player proved to be a breeze to use.
    It is fairly lightweight-the disc tray is thinner plastic than my recorder unit's tray but I haven't encountered any problems removing discs and it does respond quickly when opened and closed. Each function in use is displayed on the unit. The remote is a good size (I can read without my glasses) and very simple to use. It also has enhanced functions including a dialogue enhancer, play speed, CM skip, and quick replay-and they work! I have not noticed any type of noise or picture resolution problems with either unit; this was the first thing I checked after noting other AMAZON reviews regarding these issues. Both units also play store release DVDs and DVD-Rs equally well.
    To me, these players are just as good (if not better) than the SONY and MAGNAVOX players we have (that don't play RAM discs). The only negative comment is that when I purchased a second unit about a week after the first one, it cost $5.00 more! ...more info
  • Nice DVD Player While You Wait for Blue-Ray Prices to Fall
    It seems I have been on the "bleeding edge" of consumer electronics for my whole life, which is my cross to bear as an early adopter of technology. I once paid $1000 for a VCR when they first came out in 1980. So anyway, I bought a wonderful Panasonic 50" plasma 1080p HDTV last fall. Blue-Rays were selling for $400 at the time, but I decided I'd wait until Panasonic Blue-Ray prices fell to under $150 (you know this will happen). I bought this very nice Panasonic S54K DVD player to hold me over until then. I was pleasantly surprised that the image quality is excellent on my HDTV ('though not HD). The "up-convert to 1080p" feature is certainly adequate until the time is right for a new Blue-Ray player. Newer Panasonic Viera TVs recognize other Panasonic Viera components like this DVD, so integration is semi-automatic. One minor complaint is the disk drawer seems a little cheap, but hey, this is a inexpensive machine with nice features. If you have a standard definition TV, this unit is perfectly fine. ...more info
  • Plays Everything & "Dim Sum"
    Great Price and boy does it play every, and I mean every, DVD
    If you do any of your own recordings it will handle it.
    Even plays European formats like old French Movies ( why you would want to I don't know because the French make BORING movies ), but it can.
    I think this player could play a peanut butter sandwich, although that might void the warranty.
    I have some DVDs I backed up and a friend tried to play it on his DVD and laptop and could not - but this player plays it, with all functions working.
    Has a HDMI plug and everything - Buy it now and you will not be sorry.
    Don't be so cheap.
    Also if you are lucky enough to own or thinking of buying a Panasonic Versa HDTV with Versa Link - then one remote will operate this DVD too - a plus.
    I only gave it 4 stars because it doesn't make my popcorn !...more info
  • Not Good enough to Be called a Panasonic
    Panasonic DVD-S54K 1080p Upconverting DVD Player
    After enjoying the wonderful quality of my Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-EZ485V, I decided to trust the Panasonic name again and bought a Panasonic S54 DVD recorder. I was pleased at first with the beautiful picture produced by Upscaling my older, Home recorder DVDs. This Player procuces a very high quality, near high definition picture. I did find the remote control a little inconvienent in that it only interfaces with Panasonic TVs, so I had to use another remote to operate my Sony TV. But then I noticed a much more serious problem: everytime I fast forwarded through a Commercial, for example, and pressed Play, it would play a picture but no sound. This ocurred with most of my home recorded DVDs, including the DVD's recorded on my new Panasonic DVD recorder. Several calls to Customer Service produced no help. The manual that came with my Player is also a disappointment-much too abreviated. I returned the Panasonic and bought a Sony NS700H and I am a very happy camper....more info
  • Whats not to like
    For those of us who want a simple, high quality, moderatly priced DVD player with lots of features, this is a great model. For a few dollars more than some no name brand, I got to stick with a Panasonic. The only thing that would have made it better, and for which I would have gladly paid a few bucks more for it, is if it was made or at least assembled in the good ole USA. ...more info
  • Good product
    Simple and straightforward for those who don't spend hours copying DVDs or tapes to DVD. Integrates with other panasonic products without fuss. The seller also provided a good price compared to retail stores. ...more info
