Very affordable; easy to use; small footprint; good for picture viewing

Pioneer DV-490V-S Review and Prices

 

While it isn't the same as watching Blu-ray or HD DVDs in true high definition, using an upscaling DVD player such as the Pioneer DV-490V-S is the next best thing. Hook the unit up via HDMI to a display with a native resolution of 720p or 1080i and you...

HDMI output, 1080i upconversion, slim, compact design, DivX compatible

No digital optical audio output, no SACD or DVD-Audio support, disc loading can be slow

I just got this and I'm really pleased. For a DVD player sub 100.00, I really thinkyou can;t go wrong here. The remote control is a joke, huge, clumsy and old-school. I use my universal on it and it works fine.

Bought this in late 2006 I believe. Solid player but is very slow to power on, does not support the entire CODEX that you can play on your PC with VLC nor does it support higher res avi files. There must be newer versions of DVD players that have...

I bought this DVD player with my home theater and HDTV. Unfortunately while watching an average length film, the player starts to overheat causing the picture to skip and eventually freeze around the 80 minute mark. I strongly discourage the purchase...
