Pioneer BDP-160

Pioneer's BDP-160 Blu-ray player is unrepentantly old school. For starters, it looks like a Blu-ray deck should, rather than something impractical cobbled together for a Shoreditch design competition. And secondly, it even handles some of the more...

Pioneer BDP-LX55

The way the Blu-ray player market has changed over the years is really quite remarkable. Essentially, the high-end has all but disappeared. Where once manufacturers could release hulking flagship players with price tags rivalling those of AVRs, today's...

Pioneer BDP-LX52

There’s no question about it: Pioneer devices almost unfailingly produce top-quality pictures. On top of that, the BDP-LX 52 also sounds fantastic: Pioneer’s PQLS technology improves differentiation in HD-audio formats — although only if you use the...

Pioneer BDP-LX70

The Pioneer LX70A lacks the hardware to be upgraded to Blu-ray Profile 1.1, but its LAN connection does at least allow it to go online and download new firmware. This is a significant boon. While taken for granted with HD DVD, it's still rare on...

Pioneer BDP-LX91

This is currently the best Blu-ray player on the market, and it doesn't come cheap. The huge, black device (which weighs 15 kilograms!) soars into the high-end class with two HDMI outputs, effective picture controls, a flawless picture, and top sound....

Pioneer BDP-LX54

The Pioneer BDP-LX54 is part of Pioneer's luxury range, and it looks the part. It's pricier than the BDP-430, but if styling and flashy lights are your thing the BDP-LX54 is a definite pleaser.

Pioneer Region Free Multi-Format DVD Player DV2012

I could not play back videos of tvs recorded in Japan. This may not be compatible with the system "CPRM" applied there.

Pioneer DV 696AV

The high-definition double act of Blu-ray and HD DVD may be looming large on the horizon, but rumours about the imminent demise of bog-standard DVD appear to be highly exaggerated.

Pioneer Elite BDP-31FD

Worst DVD player I've ever owned. Took hours to boot, and firmware always seemed to be out of date. Display is small and very hard to read, and black on black buttons are darn near invisible in a dark room. Fortunately, I bought a Square Trade warranty...

Pioneer Elite BDP-23FD

Overall, the BDP-23FD succeeds at being a very good Blu-ray player. Blu-ray video performance is excellent and the player can easily decode today’s high resolution audio formats or send the bitstream audio to your receiver for processing. The player’s...

Pioneer DV 600AV-K

Until now, 1080p upscaling has been reserved for expensive high-end DVD decks, but it's just become a lot more affordable. The Pioneer DV-600AV costs just £150 but comes with full 1080p, 1080i and 720p upscaling, and more besides

For Blu-ray playback, Pioneer's BDP-LX 08 is almost unbeatable: Its pictures show not even the slightest weakness! The flicker-free DVD playback and comprehensive professional picture controls add icing to an already impressive cake. Our only real...

Pioneer DV-610AV

We bought this to replace an existing multi-regional player that was on its last legs. My wife is from Europe and has a large collection of region 2 DVDs. So far, it has been able to play all of our region 1 and 2 discs without any issues.

This DVD player is a great choice for upscaling your DVDs to near-HD quality, so long as you don't rely too much on tech support.

Pioneer DV 400V-K

Until now, 1080p upscaling has been reserved for high-end heavyweight DVD decks, but now you can find it on £100 players such as this one.This is made possible by the inclusion of an HDMI terminal.

If you have an HDTV, but don't want to opt for a Blu-ray Disc player such as the Panasonic DMP-BD65K (*Est. $125), the Pioneer DV-420V-K deserves a good look. It can upscale DVDs all the way up to 1080p via its HDMI output, and user reviews generally...

You also need to remember that this device is going to operate as your main DVD player too -- that's where the DVR-540HX falls short of its class leading competitors like Panasonic's DMR-EX75 or Toshiba's RD-85DT. Detail is not as solidly defined,...
