Summary: Looks great and performs well on blu ray discs. Stands out in my theater room above the amp, and is a nice NORMAL size, unlike the new players on the market going for that space age look. My only issue is that I do not feel the upconversion is as good as my older Sony bluray, but do love the look and feel of the menu system and performance and much faster load times for menus, and internet items.
Summary: It's okay for the money. Word to the wise, or owners of older pioneer elite equipment: Pioneer is back to making ridiculously cheap gear again. Elite was suppose to be their return to respectability, and it was for many years. This unit clearly shows their return to chintzy, just like the 80's. It works, I saved money, and I'm not sure what a couple of hundred more dollars would have gotten me (Oppo). Probably not much more.
Summary: I purchased this player from Amazon last week. Both the video & audio performance are excellent. It can play Blu-Ray disc, DVD, VCD, and CD. Most of the Blu-Ray players in the market do not play VCD. The USB media player also support the .flv file. The Dolby TrueHD & DTS HD audio formats are supported, but it requires to change the audio setting from PCM to bitstream in the initial setup menu. PRO 1. play all video disks include BD, DVD, and VCD. 2.
Pioneer Elite vs Oppo and the meaning of "Universal"
8 January 2014
Summary: There are some great review articles on the interwebs about this Pioneer BPD-62FD Blu-Ray Player comparing it's nearest rival the Oppo BPD-103. My quick recommendations are: If you like Pioneer Elite products or just need a great top of the line Blu-Ray player, buy it now from Amazon. This unit has the most for the best price and shouldn't disappoint. If you are an audiophile, you may have to do more research, but you may end up buying this unit.
I can't get a copy of AVNav to evaluate this answer correctly.

Summary: AVNav is the configuration App used by Pioneer Electronics through their net-worked devices to configure add-on devices; in my case the SC-1522-K av-receiver. As we all do in product development, we "Borrow" as much as we can to speed production and in this case the Pioneer folk borrowed Internet explorer by Microsoft. Up until Win 8.1 64 in my case one could dumb down the OS to the Apps used by the developers.
Summary: My Pioneer BDP-05FD conked out. A salesman at the electronics store recommended an OPPO to replace it. I decided to research further and read a review comparing the BDP-62FD to the OPPO. Based on thiystems I opted for the 62FD instead for much cheaper. For my purposes, the 62FD is perfect. It is a great bluray player. I'm very happy with my decision and the 62FD It was very simple to connect to my system including the universal remote. It did not need reprogramming.

Summary: This unit meets all my requirements for excellent picture and sound quality. I wish this unit had better access to video streaming via built in Wi-Fi and more choices. I would have rated this unit 5 stars if it had these features. This is a superb unit for movie watching and listening to good music.
Summary: We purchased this Blu-ray player to replace an existing Blu-ray player. We were amazed at the improvement in video quality. We were not expecting much of a difference. If you have been researching Blu-ray players you know that this unit is high-end. One thing that we were very pleased with was the load time. I placed "Finding Nemo" Blu-ray DVD into the tray and the time from the tray closing to the first menu appearing on the screen was 12 seconds.
