Review Summary

The Pioneer DV-400V-S (Silver) is a single-disc, mainstream DVD player. It is equipped with a progressive scanning feature, capable of delivering higher-quality video images to compatible televisions. Capable of playing multiple types of recordable and rewritable discs, this unit can handle more types of media that most DVD players. It also features JPEG playback, which allows viewing of digital photos (stored on a CD) on your television. However this player lacks DTS output capability, so it will not play back DTS soundtracks. It is ideal for watching movies and or listening to music. This DVD player has good features, with upconversion to 480p, 720p, 1080 I or 1080p. It can play DivX, Xvid and JPEG files, WMV, MP3 and WMA. You do not need to create a VCD disc structure, just copy the files to a CD-R/W disc or DVD and insert it into this player and it will play them. The same thing applies to the USB port that the player has so you can copy files onto a USB drive and the player will play them. The player supports slow and fast scan, even in DivX files. It has a coaxial digital audio out, HDMI out, component video out, S-Video and composite video out. Unlike so many recent DVD players, it has buttons on the front panel to control its menus, SUB/DVD switching and playback and has a very good remote control. The display is bright and informative. The onscreen displays are excellent and are very well designed; it displays at the same time the total time of the current chapter, remaining time and running time. One user was impressed with how convenient and informative the menus and onscreen displays are. And another impressive asset in this player is how Resume functionality is implemented. Considering its inexpensive price it is a good buy.
