Let's put this in perspective this player takes 22 seconds to load a cd. Most bluray players due it in less than 5 seconds.

It's only a very select but extremely vocal few that keep on beating on the speed performance as if it's the only thing that matters.
I was referring to cd playback with the 5 second comment, which the Pioneer's take 20+ seconds to load. Obviously, the disc recognition is beyond slow in these players.
Again you are dodging the issue without any specific examples. If Pioneer wouldn't have overmarketed the capabilities of the player no one would care, but they did to stating it would be one of the fastest on the market when in actuality it is easily the slowest. engadget and gizmodo got the same hype. The press release said it was as fast as a dvd player which it is not even close.
Initially on the 320/23fd the Jan. press release made claims to the fast speed with these remarks removed from the later press release from June I believe.
