The unit worked well for ten months and I was verv satisfied till it just died. I sent it in for warranty service and after more than a month got back a "refurbished" piece of junk. For weeks they could not even locate the unit in their system, even though I provided a UPS proof of delivery. Customer service made multiple promises to call me back, but never did. The repair facility office will not answer their phone and neither will their switchboard opperator. I will never again purchase a Panasonic product. If you can't count on good warranty service why buy from the company?
