Summary: These days you can pick up a Blu-ray player along with the weekly grocery shop, so a model’s got to be pretty special if it’s going to command even as much as £200. Thankfully the Pioneer BDP-450 really is quite special.
Excerpt: The Pioneer BDP-450 is Pioneer’s newest Blu-ray deck, and it spells good news for budget-conscious consumers. There’s no shortage of good, budget Blu-ray decks on the market at the moment. Great news for the consumer, but it’s harder for a manufacturer to stand out from the crowd. But, if anyone can build a machine to compete with the Sonys and Panasonics of this world, then it’s the hugely experienced Pioneer.
Pros: Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality, Fantastically focused and solid sound, Twin HDMI outputs
