I got my DVD-RV20 back in year 2000. And now 16 years later it still works, just like the day i got it. Never had any problems at all, never even cleaned it inside.

Don't buy from Panasonic! This was a nice unit until the "no disc" screen becomes a constant reminder of disposable products in a consumer based society! I now will buy the cheapest i can find...what is the point anyway?

Add me to the list of dissatisfied customers. Though I got a bit more use out of it than some of the previous reviewers, at or about 10 months after purchase it has completely stopped funtioning. Pixelates and freezes anywhere from 1 - 15 mins into any...

Easy to Operate

 

Since we were in the market for a new big screen TV, I felt that it would be nice to join the 21st century and get a DVD player to accompany it. I did some shopping around, looking for a basic set at a good price. I didn't want a multi-disk unit, and...

Nice for the price

 

I purchased this DVD player in January, it is a pretty nice unit for the affordability factor. Occasionally DVD's Skip, but that is as much because they are rentals as anything. Anything I own, hasn't skipped yet. My only real complaint about this...
