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.

Consider another Player

Dave K in Tucson "VicinTucson", Amazon
19 November 2009
  • 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

W. Alexander, Amazon
8 November 2009
  • 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.

Mostly Cruddy & Slow

Zamise, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • 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.

Thinly re-badged sharp at twice the price

WDH, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • 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.

Good, But mine wasn't region free

surveydav..., Ciao
30 December 2011
  • Excerpt: When I bought this product, they said at the store that it would be region free. But now several years after, when I need it to be, it's not. I can't play bluray discs from USA. I live in sweden and bought movies from amazon. The player in itself is great. Together with a Pioneer plasma it's stunning. The loading times was very slow at the beginning so I had to search the internet for a solution. I tried the pioneer website, but no cigar.
  • Pros: the finish looks great, audio and video rocks aswell
  • Cons: mine wasn't region free

  • Excerpt: Годится для просмотра Blu-Ray дисков и качественно изготовленных DVD-дисков. Все остальные диски- не к нему. Советую купить старую 120-ю модель Blu-Ray Philips, он хоть и старый, но с чтением дисков проблем у него нет. Лично проверял обе модели на специально изготовленном тестовом диске с битыми секторами-посмотреть как "выкрутится" система чтения и исправления ошибок.
  • Pros: Неплохой внешний вид, впечатления сначала оставляет хорошие, но потом....ниже читайте
  • Cons: 36-битный видео-ЦАП там скорее всего не стоит, это рекламная "утка". Такой видео-ЦАП будет стоить недешево сам по себе. Читает диски явно плоховато, самостоятельно записанные-тем более. Для музыки этот аппарат не годится вообще-никакого качества звука просто нет. На дисках с царапинами зависает, иногда сильно. Я не царапаю диски, но хочется чтоб их он хорошо читал, а этого нет...
