I love electronic gadgets, of any type, and the fancier, the better. So when my old DVD player bit the dust following a lightning strike, I went looking for a new one, and was faced with a bewildering array of choices. This was complicated by the fact that I won a Panasonic HDTV in a raffle, and at the same time, my parents' television set died, so my old television went to them. But in the end, my choice was determined by a set of features that made this model stand out. The bonus of a small footprint and attractive styling is nice, too!
Note: because of certain technological limitations of my equipment, I have not been able to test every single feature of this player, so this review is for the person with average access to technology.
