Questionable Quality


About 18 months ago (June 2000) I was in the market to buy a DVD player. I wanted to get a multi-disc player in order to be able to keep "current" disks in it to play without having to swap them in and out. The Panasonic C220 seemed like a good option...

Good feature set at (previously) competitive price

Flaky performance, refused to play certain DVDs, laser pickup broke down

A wonderful home theatre component - just don't pay full price...


This is the first DVD player that I've purchased, and I can't say that I'm disappointed in any way, shape or form. Especially because I paid half of what the list price is for this player. It was at a charity silent auction, and no one else wanted it,...

Holds five discs, sound and picture quality is fine, remote is small but works well.

A bit pricey, but worth the expense for everything else.

Sony DVP-NS700P DVD Player -- Way Too Fragile of a Reader


Holds five discs, sound and picture quality is fine, remote is small but works well.

A bit pricey, but worth the expense for everything else.

Great unit!


I initially bought this unit last summer, because it was an open-box model at Best buy. Having a DVD player that could stash multiple CDs and DVDs was a nice feature, and the price was good.

Great quality, operable without the remote.

5 disc capacity, horrible remote


I purchased this CD changer because of its 5 disc capability. The unit supports Dolby Digital and DTS, but at this time, I'm don't have my room set up for 5.1 yet (I will be soon). It does have a "virtual" surround mode, which does an...

5 disc capability, excellent forward/reverse scanning

aweful remote

5 Disc's for the price of 1


While some may find a 5 disc DVD player rather useless since you can only watch 1 movie at a time. The price and features of the C220 make it quite a bargain.

5 Disc changer, DD, DTS, Component Video, Virtual surround sound

DVD only remote, layer change pause

DVD's and a happy me!


I bought this DVD player this past January shortly after Christmas. I had wanted a DVD player for a long time, considering that I already owned DVD's but had nothing to play them on. You know when you're a rabid X-Files fan there's almost nothing you...

Holds five disks, great controls and functions.

None that I've found so far.

I'd been toying with the idea of buying a dvd player for a while now. Two things were been holding me back: 1. Price; the things were so danged expensive. and 2. Space; my entertainment center was jam-packed with a tv, vcr, surround system, and...

Great features

Probably won't find it for $330 in a store

Great All-In-One Machine


I bought this product because I was in the market for a DVD as well as a CD player. I considered buying separate machines, but this provided an opportunity to save space and money. I was, and still am, impressed with the many easy to use features.

5 Disc Capacity, DVD and CD Audio

Incorrect Disc Indication (could be unique to my machine)

A good choice for most people


The Panasonic C220 is an nice multipurpose 5-disc DVD/CD/VCD player that performs as advertised. When I was looking for a DVD player for my entertainment system, I wanted a player that could play my VCD collection as well as my CDs and, of course,...

5 disc changer, high playback quality, loads quickly

Cannot read CD-Rs

Product Specifications

The Panasonic DVD-C220 plays up to 5 DVDs, CDs, or Video CDs, for pure enjoyment in virtually any digital format. The changer's 5-Disc Rotary Carousel design allows you to change any of the 4 non-playing discs, without disturbing the movie you're watching, or the music you're listening to. The Front Panel LED conveniently displays the location of loaded discs, which disc is playing and the position of the disc tray when the drawer is open. The DVD-C220 also features a Quick Disc Rotation System, which lets you switch between discs at the touch of a button. This feature is ideal for watching multiple-disc movies. Dialogue Enhancer increases the center channel volume of a Dolby Digital 5/5.1-channel disc, making the dialogue easier to hear during loud scenes. Advanced Virtual Surround Sound creates the surround sound effect using only two front speakers with a wide range from left to right. Hi-Speed Smooth Motion Scan gives 5-Speed up to x100 thus providing crystal clear scan quality in both forward and reverse. Easy to Use On-Screen Menu Icons allow you to control a variety of player and disc settings via remote control. After resuming play of a DVD movie disc, Chapter Preview feature shows the first 3 seconds of each previously viewed chapter and proceeds with normal play once it reaches the position where you left off. 10-bit Video D/A Converter performs video signal processing at a fast rate for enhanced DVD picture quality. Still Picture Display (I/P/B) indicates on screen the type of still image (I, P, or B) being displayed; the I image is the best and should be used when making picture quality adjustments. Auto Switching Field/Frame Still reproduces still images in incredible detail regardless of source (film or video).
