Yep, Worked for 3-4 months without no problems. Next thing I could not remove a disc and took it in to be fixed under warranty.
2 Hours later they called me up and told me to come on down and pick up the unit. They said they could not fix it under warranty.
Because there were lots of ants in it. So I went down to Panasonic and they had it off to the side in a plastic container. The cover
was off and they had gotten the discs out. And they were these very small ants all in the unit. I had never seen any at home on the
unit. Of course I never opened the cover since I did not want to screw up the warranty. They told me they could fix it but it would
cost about $500. Almost what I had paid for it. I said hell no and brought it home. I can a can of compressed air and blew out all
the ants. Plugged it back in and could never get it to power back up.
Now I think about this I went into the closet and it's the Panny HS2 model and not the E80H model. I guess it has been so long.
I did have a E80H also, that is the unit I purchased to replace the HS2 model. I believe I even found a replacement 40GB HD for
the HS2 and that did not help. It still will not power up to this day.
