    Default Panny DVD players....

    Well I already bought one before posting this. Just wondering if anyone has a thought about them.

    I bought a new one on Ebay for a very good price. Saved myself about 30 dollars.

    Just a quick history. My old DVD player died. It was a Toshiba and I had it for 5 years with 100's of DVD's played in it. But from what I am reading on the internet that a lot of people have not been very thrilled with the new batch of DVD players that Tosh has been selling. A lot of DOA's and if not DOA then a very short life span...less than a year in most cases.

    It also seems like Sony, and JVC are going with cheaper parts also. I have seen a lot of complaint's about both of them.

    So I find this Panisonic on Ebay Panny and for the price it surprisingly got very high reviews, and customers are raving about it. So for 54 dollars on Ebay I thought...what the hell?? I'll give it a go.

    FYI- was not looking at spending a whole lot of money, but even the higher priced players were getting a lot of trash reviews. except for Denon and Marantz..but I did not have the cash for that.

    I have 3 different generations of Panasonics through-out the house, all of them surpass the 2 Toshiba models I had in picture quality terms.

    I haven't owned anything but those two brands...someone else might chime in with other brand comparisons. Keep in mind I'm not a big "video geek", but to my eyes the panny's have very good picture quality.

    Panny's are fine until you(or I should say me) get into big screen sizes. I finally had to get a Denon2200 to be happy on my 57".
