Flawed Masterpiece

T. Fonte, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I owned the unit for a year and a half and finally gave up on it when it stopped playing disks after the warranty period was up and it would have cost more to repair it than the unit was worth. First of all, the positive points: The sound and the picture are wonderful. Sharp, clear, colorful, dynamic describes the picture. Sharp, clear, dynamic and spacious describes the sound. Unfortunately the machine is not very dependable.

What's wrong with this player?

Deen Reviews "Deen reviews", Amazon
25 October 2009
  • Summary: I love Pioneer products and I love this blu-ray player, but it does have one major flaw. No direct method of upgrading the firmware. Let's be frank, if you're going to release devices with operating systems that often need to be updated they should be required to have an ethernet port and the ability to download software directly from the Net.

Great Player at a Great Price, But Buyer Beware....

Dave K, Amazon
23 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this player after reading great reviews here and elsewhere. I received the unit on a Thursday, and that weekend, I watched 4 Blu-ray movies and was blown away by the picture and sound. the upconversion was incredible as well. Then came Sunday. I ran over to Fry's for a Blu-ray sale, and picked up two Fox titles. Neither would play. I got a red screen (now known as the Red Screen of Death) when I loaded the discs that said my firmware was not up to date.

Optisch top aber Technik mit Macken

R. Mattheus, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: Ich hatte mir diesen Player auf Grund seines sehr edlen Designs (kein billiger Plastik-Slimline-Player), seiner technischen Eigenschaften, wegen der chicken Fernbedienung und auch wegen des Namens gekauft. Ein weiterer Grund war aber auch, weil er sehr gut zu meinem Pioneer Plasma 5090H passt und perfekt mit ihm kommuniziert hätte. Die Verarbeitung ist perfekt. Vollmetallgehäuse mit Kunststofffront, die man aber nicht direkt als solche identifiziert.
