Like all the others, when it works it's fine, but it doesn't work

Summary: Quite pleased with this item intially but the problems started within a week. The unit makes a load hum buzz when it's loading. I think it's the transport and the shallow tray. If you re seat the disc it often goes away. More irritating than anything.
Summary: The picture quality is superb -the image quality from both DVD and Blu Ray are excellent, great colour definition and the sound quality is also perfect. The unit streams direct from Youtube and Netflix as well - and the Youtube interface allows pairing with a smart phone or laptop which is great, as...
Pros: youtube / netflix streaming , great picture quality , great sound quality , really fast start up
Cons: no analogue outputs , sacd 5.1 only works with hdmi
Good all-round media player let down by a somewhat clunky interface.

Summary: Purchased this player because of the good reviews it received on What Hi-Fi and the special price it was offered. I assumed it was going to be a new item but it was, in fact, an ex-demmo unit (with a few nicks and scratches).
Summary: Hooked up to my VSX-923 AV amp well, totally awesome. Picture is stunning even the wife commented on picture quality and that's something. Easy to setup, and very easy to use. If you're looking for a Blu Ray player these are a must.
Summary: picture and sound quality outstanding. Problem with the one I received was that it took ages to load up and was very noisy in operation. It also had problems ejecting discs. I may have just been unlucky as pioneer have always had a good reputation.
Summary: Always liked Pioneer products, and this one doesn't disappoint. This was my first foray into the world of 3D. Always read the reviews before purchase and everything was positive about this 3D BluRay player.
Summary: I bought the BDP-450 and collected at the Watford store. After setting it up (which was easy as per the on screen menu system) with my Kuro Plasma TV I noticed the player was humming very loudly. Infact, the whole unit was shaking when trying to play the disc.
Summary: I had read some negative reviews about this product, but, I already own a Pioneer CD Player and AV Receiver and had no issues so decided to buy. It works just fine, the ability to play SACD's is a huge bonus - outweighing the rather loud "disc loading" sound on some discs.
Summary: Bought player last year as a clearance unit from Birmingham store for a reduced price of £159. Worked well most of the time but can be a little slow to respond to the remote which also is badly laid out with too many small buttons. Excellent spec for the price with sacd and dvd audio playback.
Pros: excellent picture and sound , good value
Cons: remote badly designed , can be temperamental
Summary: This has great features and works perfectly with my Pioneer Amp and LG Tv with HDMI Link. The dual HDMI output comes in very handy when you live with someone who doesn't want all the cinema sound, they can just watch it throught the TV. (Those people do exist).
Pros: lots of features , looks great , flawless picture 2d/3d
