Summary: I TRIED to use/enjoy two of these to no avail.The first failed after four years via main IC board failure,the second after 18 months,same thing.Pioneer was absolutely no help.Now Pioneer has discontinued this product.Over one thousand bucks bucks down the drain!Fool me once,shame on you.Fool me twice,say goodbye to all my future business Pioneer!
Summary: BUYERS, BE AWARE. I had 2 DVD players made by Pioneer. They are nice machines... for a little over a year. Then the warranty expires. The problem these players seem to have has to do with poorly designed dual laser pick up (one - for DVDs, the other one - for CDs and Video CDs). The first player I had stopped playing CDs and Video CDs, I got the other one - this one stopped playing DVDs.
