This blu-ray player stinks

L, Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: Chris wrote "This blu-ray player is a piece of garbage. Takes FOREVER to: start, load a movie, accept commands from the remote, you name it. I have NEVER been more disappointed with an appliance in my life. Movies constantly crash my unit. I eventually discovered I needed an update and the stupid thing won't even recognize the update it needs on the flashdrive. It's also the most noisy and clumsy appliance I've ever heard.

Missing parts

Blaine Kiser, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I was missing the remote and had to buy a universal DVD remote as I watch a lot of TV shows on DVD. It would have been perfect if it had a remote with it that could change channels. I am very disappointed with missing something so essential!!!

Wont play every Blu-Ray disc

D. Purciel, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this because of Pioneers good reputation. Not all discs will play and Pioneer is slow to come out with updates. It's frustrating getting blu-rays from netflix and the machine wont play the disc. I'm in the market for another one now. Hopefully someone will buy mine.

Disappointment

MM, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the BDP-121 which I understand is basically the Canadian version of the BDP-120. I got it at the bargain price of $100. Well, you get what you pay for. DVDs are no problem. I am impressed with Blu-ray picture quality and sound...when the player actually works. The problems are as follows: -freezes up (mostly when using Disney and even now the Thomas Tank Engine blu-rays especially if the discs are left in there when turning the unit off and then powered on...

Awful product...BEWARE!!!

Christopher, Amazon
25 November 2010
  • Summary: This blu-ray player is a piece of garbage. Takes FOREVER to: start, load a movie, accept commands from the remote, you name it. I have NEVER been more disappointed with an appliance in my life. Movies constantly crash my unit. I eventually discovered I needed an update and the stupid thing won't even recognize the update it needs on the flashdrive. It's also the most noisy and clumsy appliance I've ever heard. It seems to get confused by the buttons you push.

Slow player

Baltar., Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: This player crashes constantly - if i hit fast forward one too many times it will crash and I have to unplug, wait 5 seconds, plug it back in and then wait at least 10 minutes for the player to boot up. This happens constantly on Lost complete collection, Dexter Seasons 1-3, Supernatural Season 1 and Battlestar Galactica Complete collection. The latest firmware was released in April.

Pioneer?

Pioneer?, Amazon
10 July 2010
  • Summary: Takes forever to load a Bluy Ray disc. I'm too the point where I'm starting to think this think is broke. Point being is that the technology with Blue Ray has a ways to go yet with performance. Thinking about trying out some other players to compare. Picture and sound quality is good. Appearance of the player is also good.

  • Summary: Product is garbage. When it played it would skip frames. I am in the process of sending back to get fixed and Pioneer wants me to pay shipping to them. I would buy a different player.

Pioneer's updates may break your machine

Craig J. Yeager, Amazon
18 May 2010
  • Summary: I have a pioneer Blu Ray player. It is now 1year 2 moths old and out of warranty. I updated the firmware to watch Avatar and now the machine will not work. I am told by Pioneer support that this is a common problem and can only be fixed by sending the machine back to have the firmware reinstalled by Pioneer. The cost is a minimum of $70 evaluation plus shipping. I cannot recommend this product that is at risk of being broken each time firm ware is updated.

Blu Ray makes me happy!!

Walmart
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Having never owned a blu ray player before I went off the reviews of others to deside to purchase this one. I have been happy from the moment I hooked it up. It plays all my regular DVD's and makes them look better than they ever did. The version of firmware was, like you would expect, not the latest version so I tried to download the latest version and use the usb flash drive that came with the player to update it.
