the best so far

J. Aravindhan, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a shame Pioneer does not make Blu Ray Players like this anymore.If not anything it looks good on the shelf.But the main thing is the picture quality and no problems there.It's as good(probably better than)as the Sony BDP-S1 I also have.It loads much faster and responds to the remote control in...

Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray Player

W. Deppe, Amazon
21 April 2009
  • Summary: The Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray player was a bit of a hassel updating the firmware and going through the system setup but, when done, it was well worth while. The video and audio output for both Blu-ray and standard DVD movies is excelent playing on my Samsung 40" LCD HD television and Pioneer reciever...

It's Nice but...

Donald F. Schulze "Sundowner", Amazon
19 April 2009
  • Summary: It was a quick an easy setup, but I don't understand what all of the hoopla is about. I had a Pioneer DVD player before equipped with upconversion, and I really don't see that much of a difference (maybe that's just me being jaded...or older). Maybe with the 'right' DVD I'll notice a difference.

Solid, Well-Built Player

J Sizzle, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Pio51 through Amazon and it arrived about 10 days ago. So far I am quite pleased with both the audio and video performance. I'm using the player in a 2.1 system (Dali Euphonia MS-4) with an older Denon receiver (AVR-3805) that does not have HDMI, so I'm running HDMI directly to our...

BLU-RAY-ALMOST UNIVERSAL

Humbi "Humbi", Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: This Pioneer BDP-51FD player is indeed a great machine. The picture quality is VERY cinematic as advertised, and artifact free even with the factory presets. What I loved above all is its ability to play NTSC as well as PAL encoded video.

Nice blue-ray player but has flaws...

Bret Meyer, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: I've had this player for about a week. Overall it's a nice player. It's quite a bit bigger than most other players I've seen. I'd compare it to a typical home theater receiver. Mine came with 1.17 firmware so I went ahead and updated it to the most recent available from Pioneer's web site.

best product at best price

Loscoz "Pupperdoggies Mummah", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: The price couldn't be beat or matched by any other place for this exact player and with the free shipping - made for the best Christmas present! Came much quicker than expected and was packed in another box to 'hide' what the item was and that offered extra protection during shipping that was nice.
