Pioneer BDP-140 and Elite BDP-52FD and BDP-53FD Blu-ray Players Preview


All players support the requisite (but hardly-used) 3D and come with HDMI 1.4a outputs. As you'd expect, all the new players can upconvert video to 1080p via HDMI and 36-Bit Deep Color is supported for compatible displays.

Slow & problematic


Menus hang up / lock up, can't access menus while playing, VERY difficult to use. Had to call 3x support just to get the resume working & NOT shut down with HDMI. This was one of the worst DVD/Bluerays I have even owned. ABT is WONDERFUL though, they...
