Pioneer BDP-430 Blu-ray 3D Player Review

29 August 2011
  • Conclusion: You have to start somewhere, right? Pioneer's BDP-430 is the company's first Blu-ray 3D player, and certainly a solid performer. It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles that other new players have. In fact, it seems sort of limited, considering what some of the less expensive players currently come packing. However, what it does, it does pretty darn well. The rumor is that Pioneer will upgrade the player to add YouTube at some point.
  • Pros: Excellent audio and video performance on 2D and 3D Blu-ray Discs, Netflix and Pandora streaming, Option to turn front-panel LED off and go stealth
  • Cons: Slim streaming options, No 5.1 surround for Netflix, Boot up and loading times on the slow side, Could be a little cheaper

Pioneer BDP-430 review: Pioneer's first 3D Blu-ray player is a solid performer with no real surprises

  • Summary: Pioneer's BDP-430 Blu-ray player is a solid unit. It's can play 3D Blu-ray movies and is also able to connect to the Net and watch YouTube videos and access BD-Live content. It's not as versatile as the feature-packed Samsung BD-C6900 or Sony BDPS-470, but what it does, it does well.
  • Pros: Plays both 2D and 3D Blu-ray discs perfectly, reasonably quick start-up times
  • Cons: Not as diverse a range of online services as LG or Samsung Blu-ray players

Pioneer BDP-430: 3D-Blu-ray-Player

21 June 2011
  • Summary: Nervig ist neben dem langsamen Laufwerk vor allem die Bildanschärfung bei Blu-rays, die sich nicht abschalten lässt. Insgesamt liefert der Pioneer BDP-430 jedoch ein gutes Bild bei 2D und 3D, und auch sein sehr feines Upscaling von DVDs überzeugt. Vor allem in Verbindung mit Pioneer-Receivern ist er eine überlegenswerte Anschaffung.

  • Excerpt: Pioneers erster 3D-Player BDP-430 enstand in Zusammenarbeit mit Sharp. Dennoch ist er kein Klon, sondern bietet Spezialitäten wie die haus­eigene PQLS-Technik. Sie reduziert in Verbindung mit aktuellen Pioneer-Receivern den Jitter bei der digitalen Ton­übertragung. Mit dem nächsten Firmware-Update sollen Funktionen wie YouTube-Abruf und Netzwerk-Streaming kommen.
