Crippled, awkward interface, crappy sound. Good for watching YouTube.

Summary: It is a shame that this product could have ever sold for over 500 dollars. While it has lots of features, the lousy interface makes the few useful ones nearly worthless. Useless Features: FM radio. Reception is poor, about the equivalent of the disposable FM stereos you can get at the Dollar stores.
Summary: This system was a complete disappointment, sound-wise. The 5.1 system is barely discernible because the rear speakers are audibly non-existent. The movie voices port through the sub-woofer and that is annoying. Very disappointing for a Pioneer brand system that costs this much.
Summary: The varying reviews here are all accurate. The system is pretty good, yet pretty lousy. First, the sound is decent for the price, so a good value. The wifi is also quite capable and dependable. The blu-ray appears to be very good as well when the software is not frozen. BUT...
Save your money...you can get a more reliable system elsewhere!

Summary: Save your money. I actually got this system about a year ago to replace a Sony receiver that finally bit the dust after 10+ years of daily use. I regret getting this system every day, and I got it on-sale for (what I thought) was a decent price.
Summary: We have had this for 1 month and now the unit will not move off of the root menu screen. It seems to start to boot up, but then stays stuck. The volume and power buttons are the only things that work. At this point I have a Redbox movie stuck inside because the open/close button will not work.
