Pioneer BDP-120

 

The release of the Sony Playstation 3 was just the beginning of the Blu-ray era and now budget Blu-ray players like the Pioneer BDP-120 are rolling out at a price level that makes it attractive for the masses that want a better home theater experience...

The Pioneer BDP-120 Blu-ray player has the same great audio features along with more than decent image quality especially when paired with Pioneer HDTVs and AV amps. It is very reasonably priced budget player that allows you to enjoy top quality...

Pioneer BDP-120

 

The Pioneer BDP-120 Blu-ray player boasts fine video and audio capabilities, but its frustrating operational quirks make this player an also-ran.

Impressive Blu-ray video and audio performance ; Good feature count ; Solid DVD upscaling

Quirky and frustrating to operate ; Not all that quick at loading/playing BDs ; Display far too small

Pioneer could have had a "budget BD player to beat" with the BDP-120. There's no denying its fine video and audio capabilities plus impressive feature count, but its frustrating operational quirks take a fair chunk of icing off this cake, which is a...

Pioneer BDP-120 and BDP-LX52 Blu-ray Players

 

Released around the same time Pioneer's BDP-120 and BDP-LX52 Blu-ray players bring the company into a market more accessible to mainstream buyers than its previous offerings.

Excellent deinterlacing of DVDs and unconventional Blu-rays (for BDP-LX52) ; Excellent transport controls (for BDP-LX52) ; Proper audio decoding for all formats

Slow operation ; Slow DVD layer change (for BDP-LX52)

The Pioneer BDP-LX52 was a worthy unit, despite the occasional operational clunkiness. If you want the very best in picture quality, regardless of the disc, then this player will deliver. With its ‘Video Adjust’ key on the remote control, it is the...

I bought this thinking it was Pioneer's entry level product, but it is actually just a re-branded model provided by Sharp. When you format the flash drive, it even labels it as "Sharp".

Plays most DVD/Blu-ray discs

Just a re-branded, Sharp player, not true Pioneer.No network updates.Updates are few and far between.Had problems playing some Blu-ray discs

Pioneer BDP-120

 

This was a good cheap player at the time. It would not really shut off and going in a standby mode and make noise. This was annoying for me when I was sleeping as this was my bedroom player. Recommended for a cheap bdp in a non-bedroom setting.

great pq, decent playback

slow loading times, had standby power issues, made noise, re-branded sharp bdp if I recall right
