Excellent Combo System But A Little Complicated To Operate
 
I like DVD/VCR combos for simplicity (one less remote to worry about) and wanted an upgrade w/decent sound quality. The Panasonic SCHT820V certainly delivers impressive sound quality! Physical setup was easy, the only snag being the discovery that you *must* use the included video cable to connect the main unit to your TV as the antenna/CATV cable hookup (unlike other systems) only passes your antenna/cable signals to your TV, *not* the DVD/VHS signals. Included speaker wires were refreshingly l...

Excellent system for small home
 
We have this system paired with a 30 inch LCD TV in our small cottage. We use it for DVDs, VHS videos for the kid and for jazz/classical CDs. We especially wanted a progressive scan DVD player with a 5 disk changer AND a VCR. We were delighted to find this because most of the other systems we saw had only a single disk DVD with a VCR, or a 5 disk changer with no VCR. The tradeoff from the 720 model is less wattage on the speakers in return for the VHS deck. (The 920 has even more wattage.)

Stay away from Panasonic!
 
Customer Service - the Panasonic website claims this is very important to them. I had my home theater only 3-4 months when a VCR tape got stuck. I has now been at the service center for almost 4 months! When I am lucky enough to get a response from Panasonic (which is rare), they make promises of completion and/or replacement. But promises won't play the DVD's my family would have liked to watch together over the holidays. When we finally got through to the customer service center on the phone, ...

excellent but complicated
 
i praise panasonic for making a 5 disc dvd home theater with a vcr included, but the operation is hard. in order to listen to just a regular tv signal you have to route the sound through the vcr. there should be a tv in mode to listen directly to the television, but there is not. otherwise sound is great and dvd playback is awesome, and having the speaker outputs on the back of the sub is actually really nice.

bad customer support
 
You cannot get through to customer support over the phone no matter how long you stay on the line.

Instruction manual terrible
 
WE think the product is great. But the instructions are horrible. They are very high level and confusing. Calling tech support only resulted in a recommendation that the unit was broken and needed to be returned to the service center. Luckily I called a home theater company who spent two hours programming the unit and correcting a connection. My advice is that if you run into problems, spend the money for a professionl. It's very worth it.

Lasted ALMOST a year...
 
I received this product in a raffle less than a year ago. At the time it was selling retail for $400US. It worked ok, except I could never get it to record VHS or play sound from the TV or cable box. The only time the audio worked was if you were playing something in the unit itself, like a DVD or VHS tape. Well, here we are barely 10 months later and the DVD player quit working. I went to the support area of Panasonic's website, to see if there was a service center nearby, and selected the mod...

nice but complicated
 
I like the sound and the unit looks good. I haven't figured out how to route the TV sound through the VCR. And when I put on a DVD, the sound is mostly from the rear speakers. Any help would be appreciated.

Great value for money!!!
 
I have one of that system 'a la' Panasonic and it is great from all points of view! I love it! I saw some unsatisfied guys (about Panasonic) and i want to say something about that. I think they don't know that the best technologies in electronics are from Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer and other big japanese brands (trust me, my dad is working in a service center in Romania and i know the technological difference between a Panasonic amplifier system and a Jvc one, for example) . The faults about...
