The odd thing is that I could not remove the black plastic cover.

Isn't that supposed to come off easily?

It might have been adhered, can't remember, but it went right back together no problem.

PIONEER BDP-05FD Blu-Ray Disc player (2008)

my first truly high-end BRDP. just nabbed off the BAY for just over $200 shipped.

had to load the latest Firmware to get it to play nice, but that done, it has loaded every disc i've yet tried perfectly
and has easily proved itself the all-round best BRDP i've used to date. it may not be the fastest loader ever,
but it's speedy enough for me, and in any case well worth the very few minor faults
to own an honest to goodness Japanese made PIONEER ELITE BRDP.

this one's definitely a keeper for sure, for as long as i can keep it or another like it running...

Catch the Spirit of a True ΩPIONEER

Thanks for the feedback.
Same here...I have the 51FD and it served me well. Still works fine but it was slow and rentals would freeze if there was a scratch. I finally gave up and bought the Oppo 103. Wow its a great player. I have a Meridian surround processor setup and added an HD s/pdif card that replaces the analog output card. Now couldn't be happier with the upgrade. I had added multi-channel s/pdif output to my old 51fd as well so I was stuck with that setup until I discovered that I could do the same with the Oppo 103. Meridian processors do not handle HDMI thus the need for multi-channel s/pdif output from the player.
