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.
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
