Summary: We purchased this for my husband at Christmas. The service was super quick, it is new, and works well...still learning the mechanics, but overall, we are very pleased. I would buy from this seller again.
Summary: I purchased both the Sony DVPCX995V and the Pioneer and compared them side by side. I took the Sony back and kept the Pionneer. This was to simplify the kids life (load all their DVD's and not have to worry about finger prints, scratches etc). The menu is fast and easy and compared the Sony, this thing quickly rotates the the chosen disc. Having to constantly re-enter titles on the Sony was what did it in for me. I haven't had any issues at all with the Pioneer.
Good machine - in comparison - still lacking usability!

Summary: I have several DVD players and the picture quality and sound on the DV-F727 is very good. The lack of usability actually comes with loading and maintaining the disc inventory. It is NOT STATE OF THE ART, that for the TITLE as well as for ONE ARTIST there are just 12 characters, despite the GUI interface and the mouse and keyboard. I do like this product, but it obviously never went through some USABILITY testing.
Summary: I got this DVD player just a couple of days ago and watched a few movies and played hours of music already. I am very pleased with the sound and picture quality it offers (I use S-video and Monster co-axial cables). This is my first DVD player. The setup is quite easy and straight forward. The keyboard input for titles is nice, but the information you can input is more than limited. Nice search functions though.
Summary: I first purchased a Toshiba 3109 and then a Panasonic 220. Both units had typical dvd sound and picture quality and were fairly easy to use. But some of the features that I wanted were either missing or difficult to use. Also, I am very lazy, and when I had an occaisonal whim to see a portion of of a movie that was not already loaded, I usually did not bother. The Pioneer more than satisfied any disatisfaction that I had with the other players.
Summary: I've owned the Pioneer DV-F727 for at least 6 years and have been VERY pleased. I still remember the first Universal movie we fired up. It had the new (well, new then) logo rotating into view around the Earth. With a component video hookup it looked so good it almost passed for 3-D. It still looks as good today. Frankly, I'm surprised to see this model still for sale considering how quickly most electronics come and go. I suppose that says something about it, too.
Great way to keep discs easily accessible yet safe.

Summary: We have two of these units connected to enlarge the capacity even more. With our smaller kids it enables us to load the DVD's when purchased and no one has to handle them again. No more scratches or lost discs. We love these, I just wish I could find something similiar for the playstation and computer games. We have had our first one for 6 years with no problems to date.
Summary: I all ready have 3 other Sony products operating from one remote.There were no other command controls to add a 4th Sony DVD changer,so I picked this Pioneer disc changer.It stacks up great to the Sony changers I have.Very easy to use right out of box.The one con I can see is once DVD's are loaded I can't seem to find an eject button to remove a DVD if I wanted to.The price was a little higher than the Sony 400 disc DVD player I own but I see no reson not to buy this...
