Summary: I really like it, BUT it is absolutly not a freezone blu ray player. Indeed, I tried to watch a bluray from France, and an error zone message appears....... At this price, it is just unbelievable.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: With some reluctance I bought the BDP-62 mainly as an aesthetic match to my SC-27 Elite receiver, albeit some negative reviews. Sitting next to my Oppo 93 I think it is a better looking unit, operationally not quite the equal but very close.
