Hardware Review

Panasonic DVD-RV31 DVD player.  We evaluated Panasonic's new $200 entry-level DVD player, and we're pretty impressed with this model's winning combination of features, performance, and value.  The DVD-RV31 can read CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and decode MP3s.  We're giving it an emphatic nod of approval and adding this model to our list of recommended DVD players as an "excellent value".  Read more.
