Exceptional Blu Ray player!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Summary: The player is exceptional in every aspect. Video Quality is much better than my other sony player and the Music is just outstanding. I was very concerned with a negative review of firmware issues. Yes it is true that some serial numbers have this problem, but you just have to make sure not getting the HIEA010550CC, HIEA010883CC, HIEA010970CC, HIEA011018CC, HIEA011084CC, HIEA011897CC, HIEA011916CC, HIEA013239CC, HIEA014915CC, HIEA014952CC and HJEA015613CC Series.

  • Summary: I posted this review for Oppo, which I repeat here as I first bought Oppo but then after these tests moved to this Elite and I can't be happier! Ok, so I got carried away like all others with Oppo features, and fan-boy reviews... ordered one and started using it. Since I am a bit of a Hifi guy, I asked my buddy to bring his blu-ray to do a back to back comparison to a Pioneer Elite BDP-05, connected to an Elite Plasma Kurp 9G, and here's what we found: Speed: Oppo is...

  • Summary: I almost purchased this Blu-ray player today. I, however, decided to wait and check with the local Pioneer dealer first from whom I purchased my Kuro Pro-151FD. The local dealer informed me that Pioneer discontinued this model already because of some problem with the firmware that actually requires the end-user to ship out the player back to Pioneer for repair or hardware rework, depending on how you want to look at it.

  • Summary: AMAZING picture quality! fast load times and no lag. The MAIN reason I love this player is the firmware updates are MAC COMPATIBLE! I had to throw out my Sony because their firmware updates were only PC. That made it useless after about three months (wouldn't play ANY Blue Rays) Not to mention the fact that I could cook dinner before the damn thing powered up and started playing. The Pioneer is worth every penny. You will not regret this purchase.

  • Summary: Comments about Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD Blu-ray Disc Player: The load time seems faster than other Blu-ray players I've had. I replaced a lower end Sony with this one and am very pleased. The real test will be how it lasts and how it handles newer and older dvds.
  • Pros: Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support

Exceptional player

  • Summary: I have been holding out on purchasing a blue ray until after the format war was settled between blue ray and the Toshiba HD DVD. Now that I have it, I'm not sure what I did without one! This thing is awesome! So you probably realize that the blue ray format is great before you read this... So, let me tell you why I picked this unit. 1. start up. This until starts up very quickly. In fact I couldn't believe how long it took other brands to boot.
