Panasonic DVD-S47S


Slim, striking design; compatible with a variety of recordable disc formats and media types; solid progressive-scan video processing; optical and coaxial digital audio outputs.

Poor anamorphic downconversion; uninspired remote.

High style and disc compatibility make this inexpensive player worth the extra couple of bucks.

"Great Features, perfect for HDTV"


Looks great on my 90 inch projector, has numerous image adjustment options to fine tune to your display. 4:3 auto shrink works well for widescreen tvs. Variable zoom can make all movies fit 16x9 widescreen without black bars with the push of a remote butt

depth enhancer works by blurring the background slightly to remove noise--it is evident on my big screen, however quick movements by foreground objects make blurry edges, and thinks like hair strands can become blurred into the background.I didn't really
