Solid Unit - Great Picture and sound


Durable, long lasting unit. Great looking. Perfect addition and any home theatre system.

Tedious rewind and fast forward function. Difficulty with some MP3 tracks.

This thing is a dud


I want to post a review to *dissuade* anyone from purchasing this machine. I got it on clearance (making way for the DVD52, I presume) in June 2002. I liked the price ($179) and the fact that it was a 5-disc changer. The wife and I got home from ...

5-disc changer

Shelling out nearly $100 to have this repaired before two years' use.

The Dreaded H02 Error


Lasted Longer than RCA. Got my money's worth.

H02 error. Would probably not buy DVD players from Panasonic again.

Small issues with remote

Choose something else


This player has been out awhile now. While it works reliably and well, it has so many user interface problems that I would not recommend it. The onscreen display is composed entirely of non-intuitive icons with no text explanation. There is no way...

5-disc player, decent quality video and sound

Horrible interface. No time remaining, MP3 titles, mysterious on-screen icons, tricky disk exchange.

Panasonic DVD-CV51 Multi-disc DVD Player


My first DVD player was a Panasonic single-disc model, the RV30, but I got frustrated with the fact that it couldn't consistently play CD-R discs, so when I found the CV51 on clearance at Target, I grabbed it mainly because it could play CD-R and CD-RW...

Very compatible with all sorts of media and formats ; solid build

Can't split the audio outputs

Panasonic DVD-CV51 Multi-disc DVD Player


This review is actually for the DVD-CV52 (electronics come out faster than epinions adds categories). If you're looking for a 51, please read on though.

MP3, CD, CD-R/RW, 5 disc convenience, lower price than the CD51 it replaces, slim

Small display, cramped tray
