Summary: BluRays have traditionally been slow. Who cares? That's the only gripe? I got mine at a swap meet without a remote. I like it. It feels solid and well built. I've been loyal to Panasonic since 1988, but gosh darn it, they are messing up with BluRays (what do they weigh? 3oz?). I've had my store "floor model" Pioneer LaserDisc since 1996 and it still works like a champ! To anyone who wants to replace the remote and doesn't want to pay the $50 (!
Summary: worked great at first but didn't last long. slow, jittery and when I updated firmware from their disk that they sent me, it now wont play anything but old blue ray and regular dvd's . Tech support couldn't help and just said send it in and for $70.00 will analysis it for you. I have a pioneer tv that is outstanding but the blue ray player sucks for the cost. not pioneers quality item by any means.
Summary: Surprising that Pioneer hasn't thought this product through. I thought that buying the Pioneer brand would mean that I didn't need to spend time checking to make sure it was premium product. Wrong. The remote: confusing. The speed: abysmally slow to simply start up a disc or even just open the disc tray. The on-screen user interface: a joke. WTF?
Summary: Well I upgraded from the Pioneer BDP 120 to the BDP 320, not that the 120 did not do the job. I just was looking for a higher level model. I have used the 320 for 9 months now and it works great, as long as you have the latest firmware update install. I express my view on this issuse in my review of the 120, and Pioneer really needs to get on that band wagon.
Summary: Really very good quality of picture has surprised me. Before I used PS3 for Blu-Ray disks but on this device I open my favourite films again for myself. Multi-zonal option is very useful especially for me, easy to switch(no need to go inside or even touch cabels). It is only pity that support is only in Canada and USA.
Summary: Note: I'm using the latest firmware as of this writing (3.65, Nov 2010) Funny how I write this review after watching the new Blu ray edition of "Back to the Future" on that player. That Pioneer player drives you back to 1985 ergonomics. For people not used to DVD/Blu-ray players, the player is far from the ergonomics you can expect nowadays. 1.
Summary: I put off buying a blu-ray player until recently, but when Shout Factory started releasing their Roger Corman's Cult Classics Collection on blu-ray, I finally broke down and bought my BDP-320 to play them on (6/18/10). The problem? As of Firmware version 3.65, it will not play these discs. Not at all. It seems to play other discs fine, with great picture, great sound, no problems. It just won't play the Shout Factory discs.
Summary: This is a super player as to video, passing 24 fps, etc. It's one weakness is it's start-up time. Like so many other players before it, the average time period from "On" to the start-up of video can be as long as 1 minute, but most BD movies are averaging approx. 40 seconds. Other than that, for the price, it's super!
