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: I purchased this to go along with my Pioneer receiver and am disappointed as I have to use both remotes for the Stereo and the Blu ray player. The display is very cheesey and hard to read and the buttons on the Blu ray player are hidden and Hard to locate. I wish now that I would have pruchased another brand. It does have a great picture and sound quality.
Mediocre now, but used to be Slow, Quirky, Didn't like DVDs

Summary: I purchased this unit because I have a Pioneer receiver and wanted to share the remote. I bought my unit in October 2009. This unit was slow, failed to play many DVDs, and wouldn't play sound about half the time. I cannot understand how Pioneer messed this unit up so badly - it should never have hit the streets in this condition. Several months and three firmware updates later (February 2010), some of these complaints have been addressed.
Summary: I'm comparing this to the PS3s Blue Ray feature as well which I'm use to... This unit is very anoying because it is soooo slow. Bringing up menus, switching video resolutions, loading & ejecting, even turning it off and on takes for dang ever. When you have to sit through preview trailers rather than trying to ff or get to main menu it won't be long before you start pulling your hair out.
Summary: My initial thoughts are this is a Sharp re-badge. Although it is an attractive player, build quality appears poor. The tray rattles when opened and the front panel buttons feel thin and plasticy and like they might break if used frequently. The tray is loose and can be manipulated. The front facade on the tray is very loose and actually feels like it might fall off. Once again, it is an attractive player, but the led chapter readout is pure sharp.
Summary: Budgetspelare. Visar en fin bild men är något så otroligt slö. Den tar extremt lång tid på sig att öppna luckan ex. Dessutom är den väldigt, väldigt känslig för repiga skivor. Lite smårepiga barn-DVD är inget man lirar i denna. Pioneer har bättre blu-rayspelare till liknande pengar. Köp en sån, inte den här.
