Good but not


I've owned Panasonic DVD players in the past and loved them the last one I had remembered 5-discs which is why I went for this one. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to make that work. I left emails with Panasonic and called them and they...

Looks nice, plays a whole bunch of different format, inexpensive, easy to use remote control

Screen display is vague, no optical out, despite specs on Panasonic website will not remember more than one disc at a time (site says up to 5), kind of noisy on occasion

Panasonic DVD S29


I run this with a Panasonic 37" plasma and a KEF/Yamaha surround system - price wise its the weakest link, but it doesn't disappoint, excellent performance all round. We tend to watch a lot of action movies as well as kids movies for the children -...

Only 2 Channel Audio

Inexpensive,plays well both PAL and NTSC discs and most importantly compatiable with old TVs.

Front panel is not very aesthetic.Little more bulky

Inexpensive but a bit lacking


The Panasonic DVD-S29 DVD Player lies roughly at the same price point as a number of cost-effective DVD players, most notably the flexible but inconsistent Philips DVP-642 and the robust Sony DVP-NS50P. While it is a pretty good value, often available ...

Inexpensive, performs basic functions reasonably well.

Grainy composite and overly soft, dark component picture, some ineffectual options, flimsy areas of construction.
