Pros: Puchased on sale at Best Buy good deal. Upconverts regular DVD movies really improves the movie watching. I don't have to rebuy the movies I already have saves me a lot of money. Loads most movie discs in 30 sec or less, even Blue Rays.
Cons: Didn't know about firmware updates to keep player current to play all the BD formats. Took me about 45 minutes to upgarde the firmware, but once updated okay. Another small con player is larger than regular DVD players.
"I like this Pioneer Blue Ray Player was easy to hook up"

Pros: Ease of hook-up. Picture quality for DVD upconversion is great. I haven't seen a BD on it yet newly purchased.
Cons: Several DVD movies I tried the sound phased in and out and a little muffled. But all in all on average a good sound through my Sony LCD TV via HDMI connection and optical out to my Yamaha AVR. The user manual is a little confusing.
Pros: I purchased this player for the features on the 7.1 Audio I purchased this one at Best Buy. I watched Grand Torino and the picture was excellent. The Player is easy to set up.I love the look of the Blu- Ray player.
Cons: I would recommend ordering the update through support, I called Pioneer Support to order the update. Don't waste time with the download its much easier to order the CD.
