This is one of the best...IF you don't mind dropping a few extra dollars


This player is of relatively high quality with a great picture clarity and excellent sound system IF you have the money to buy it. The picture quality is best described as flawless. It is almost like watching it on the big screen but with no...

Fantastic picture great clarity and an excellent sound system.

Fantastic pictures and great clarity only come with a digital quality television and surround sound.

SUPERIOR design and excellent performance!!


When I was looking for my next DVD player (upgrading from an older Panasonic unit) I studied ones from SONY, TOSHIBA, and a few other top models. I finally settled on the Panasonic DVDR30. THe DVDR30 features:

Solid performance. Great picture.Slim unit. Nice remote control design.

I actually own the Panasonic DVD-RV80, but in my search evaluated the RV30 as well and realize that the extras included in the RV80 may not be worth the price difference for everyone although they definitely were for me. In this review my intention is...

Solid Construction and ease of use. A great value.

Lacks some of the higher end quality enhancements.

At, I found the Panasonic DVD-RV30 to be the most highly rated DVD player. So I decided to put it to the test. First off, I don't own this DVD player, but I have used it for quite a bit of time. I have been using Onkyo, Sony, Toshiba, and...

Inexpensive, Great Sound, Optical Output (sound), Great Picture, Easy To Use

This DVD player is very adequate for your uses.


Possesses great technology for playing your DVDs.

Possesses outdated technology that has been eclipsed by newer DVD players.

Why did we wait so long.


We sold our house at the end of November last year. Left all the gardening equipment, some furniture etc. for the new people. The day we signed the contract on the house, they presented us with a DVD player.

Even I can use it.

Can only be used with one of our televisions.

My Favorite Toy


I got the Dvd Rv-30 for a prize from an online company a few months ago. I have to admit I was amazed that I got a good quality player for a prize. I honestly thought it would be a cheap one that is about $100.00 (like the ones I could afford, lol)....

Crystal clear pictures and amazing sound quality.

Needed a new t.v. to hook it up directly.

Best DVD Player in its Class!


I have owned a DVD-ROM drive since they were first introduced three years ago. I thought that DVD-ROM would be the standard media by now, but I guess I was wrong. The picture is very bad and movies on the player look like slide shows! So I decided...

Great picture and sound quality, excellent features, excellent remote, great price!

Can't access channels with a "one-click" sort of way through the remote... very small complaint.
