In my humble opinion, these stand as some of the best true blu ray players ever made. Full stop.
What Pioneer has quietly slid on to dusty shelves of Best Buy over the past two years is crap not worthy of the two AA batteries in the remote.
Fingers crossed they can breath some life into what used to be sitting at an incredible axis point of performance and value, allbeit slow to load a disc!
