Much better picture and sound than my old panasonic blue ray

Summary: I purchased the BDP-62 using chase points on my CC. Received it today and im impressed. Much better picture and sound than my old panasonic blue ray. I bought a $50 netgear wireless network connector and it works fine with the unit. I now control my SC-65 and BDP-62 using my ipad. DVD up scaling is almost blue ray quality. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the netflix menu navigation.
Summary: I've owned Pioneer products for 40 years. Their quality is slipping. Too many features to break. The good: great picture on Blu-Ray and standard DVD, sound quality is outstanding. The bad: Too many features to navigate through, to get lost in, to make mistakes in setting features. The Ugly: It won't turn on. AT ALL, dead as a door nail. I have to unplug it wait a minute and plug it back in.
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.
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.
superb picture and sound of video/audiophile quality

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: I checked the reviews on this player on the web and now that I have it I agree it was a great purchase on Amazon($274). I couldn't find the great $199 price that some people found at BB. Everything works great except for the remote which is why it did not get 5 stars. As noted on the web reviews the remote needs to be pointed directly at the play or it is not recognized. Our DVDs look almost as good as Blu-Rays do on my Panasonic plain Blu-Ray player.
Summary: I have had this Blu Ray player for 4 weeks and it has played DVD's from France and Italy with great video on my Samsung 8000 65 TV. As far as audio is concerned I compared several sources from Blu Ray true HD to SACD and standard Dolby 5.1 playing through a Pioneer elite SC65 receiver and the sound is far better than when played through my Samsung Blu Ray player.
