Best portable DVD player


The Panasonic DVD-LS86 blows other portable DVD players out of the water when it comes to battery life. While most can only muster two or three hours, the Panasonic lasts up to nine hours between charges in one professional test. Reviewers say this is...

Excellent battery life, divX compatibility, foldable screen

No remote control or SD card slot, buttons obstructed when screen is folded down

Great Player


wish it had a tv tuner but you can't have everything.

Plays everything I throw at it. I burn 3 or 4 Divx movies to a dvd and it will play them, no problem. Battery life is great, not the full 13 hours but more than enough to get you through 4 movies. If you turn the unit off in the middle of a movie it...

video out quit working so I hooking it up to a tv is not an option anymore. but I have beat this thing to death in my car for a few years, not to mention the trips its been on with the kids doing their best to destroy it

Panasonic DVD-LS86 8.5" Portable DVD Player


We love it! Everything is so solid feeling and feels finely made. New egg does it again! Best price, Best products, I always shop here first.

Great solid build, smooth operating buttons, just a very strong unit. Video is good, sound is good. I love the fact that the owners manual is easy to read and JUST in english. Very user friendly unit. Battery life is great

There is a cost for all that battery life. I think the unit is a little too heavy, extra large battery and the tilt mechanism are an added weight and size

Great little unit!


Picture quality is not exactly what I expected but for the size and $ I cannot even knock and egg off for it.

Great battery life, worth the extra few $, IMO. No issues playing store bought DVD's

Super long battery life. Has been very reliable. Solidly built. Easy controls

Picture isn't super awesome, but works fine for a 9" screen

Good player


Cheap player. Works really well. I had no issues using this player and the image quality is reasonable. I have had this for 2 months and we use this regularly when traveling with my kids

Video image quality could be better

Exactly as Advertised


I bought those super thin plastic (colored) CD holders, and put my DVD movies in them. That way, I can take quite a few movies without taking up a lot of space in the DVD bag.

I've never had a portable player so have no preconceived notions about the product. I bought this DVD player after previewing all units on display at Best Buy. I liked the 13 hour battery idea - and haven't been able to run it long enough (before I get...

None so far - I like it. But, I have Power DVD on my computer to watch movies, and one really nice feature it provides is a window that asks if you want to start at the beginning or at the last place you were viewing. That's handy when I want to pick...

JUST NOT FOR ME ... I will prob go with the new SONY dvp-fx820... really the same battery life and better design, features and pic quality; oh ya a fantastic remote .. As allways new egg came through w/ a perfect deal but it is all about the product..

Well here I go again with a purchase of a DVD player for traveling.. SAME OLD STUFF. The sound on the plane is not good at all and it is very misleading about the 13 hour life of the battery. You will need to watch your movie on the DARKEST MODE to...

NO REMOTE and very misleading about the battery life. You need to use the ver darkest setting to get the longer battery life.

Panasonic DVD player keeps the kids busy.


The Panasonice portable DVD player is great for keeping the kids occupied while driving or just around the house.  The large screen is great and easily viewed by more than one person at a time.  The rechargeable battery seems to last forever.  This...

Product Specifications

The large 8.5" widescreen display pivots for free-style viewing so you can adjust the position for optimum comfort and image quality. You can also adjust the screen brightness to get the best view of your DVDs in all kinds of light conditions. You get beautiful images while watching movies on a dimly lit airplane, or when you're relaxing in the sun at a resort or other outdoor spot. When you're in the mood for a movie, this versatile player can play back many different types of prerecorded DVDs, including DVD-RAM/-R/-RW1 and DVD+R/+RW1 discs. If you want to give your eyes a rest and listen to some tunes instead, our portable DVD player handles lots of the most popular audio formats around, including CDs, MP3s2, CD-R/RW3 discs and WMA4 files. The DVD-LS86 comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that gives you a full 13 hours of playback without having to worry about running out of power on long trips. That's long enough to watch up to six DVD movies5 on a single charge while flying from New York to L.A. and back, so leave the AC adaptor at home and forget about recharging at your hotel.
