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
