good buy


a lot cheaper than BR and HD-DVD

gives me a good picture on my DVDs so I don't have to replace them with Blue-ray or HD-DVD

it took me a little while to understand the settings

I record regular tv to disk with my Happauge, burn to a dvd-rw and play back with this. Much better than regular TV.

Great picture. Lots of options. Looks FANTASTIC with the Olevia 37" lcd I purchased from Newegg

None really. Takes some setup. No hdmi cable

Panasonic DVD-S52K DVD Player with HDMI Output,Up-Conversion and HD (1080i/720p)


I bought this to go along with my new LCD and I'm glad I did. This player has a large number of options for setup on both audio and video. Movies look fantastic. I can't imagine being able to get much better of a picture off of a standard DVD.

HD up-conversion over HDMI

No major cons. An eject button on the remote would have been nice

Does everthing as advertised. Black version of the DVD-S52S. Quick setup worked found the optical audio and correctly configured to my TV. So far has run all moives/media I have. Up coverts w/o problems

none so far

Product Specifications

If you have even a moderately complicated home theater setup, you probably have a pile of tangled cables on the floor behind it. Imagine replacing all those cables with a single cable that carries both digital video and audio at the same time. With the HDMI standard, that's exactly what you get. HDMI carries high-quality digital video and audio over the same thin cable, allowing you to run one cable from your DVD player to an HDMI-compatible TV or home theater receiver. When connected to an HDMI-compatible TV via an HDMI cable, the DVD-S52 Series player can up-convert the DVD content that you're watching to 720p or 1080i resolution (depending on your TV's display capability) so you can enjoy beautiful, high-quality imagery in high definition. Incredibly versatile and format friendly, this DVD player can play back just about any DVD or CD you can throw at it. Specifically, it can play back the following disc formats: DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R (including dual layer), DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R (including dual layer), DVD+RW, CD, CD-DA, HDCD, and CD-R/RW (including MP3, JPEG, and WMA). The goal of any playback device should be accurate reproduction of the original content. In the case of DVDs, most of that content is film-based. Utilizing advanced progressive scan playback techniques and very accurate MPEG video decoders, this DVD player provides an image that faithfully represents the image you see at your favorite movie theater.
