Pioneer DV-400V


We've perhaps become a little blasé about budget DVD players, but this deck from Pioneer deserves nothing but your full attention. It will obviously appeal to those who don't want to spend a fortune to get a quality experience

Upscales to 1080p, Strong multimedia credentials, Impressive all-round performance

A stylish budget deck that gives more features and performance than we've come to expect from this price range

A terrific up-convert 1080P HDMI DVD Player!


If I was in the market for a DVD player, I would buy one of these again in a heartbeat!

Sleek, black, component-style DVD player that delivers terrific 1080P HDMI up-converted video and also supports USB camera connections and MP3 audio CDs

It doesn't stream Netflix

Great playback, upconverting and sound.


I am very happy with this DVD player and I really like the settings available through the player. Everything is great overall.

Picture is great when I upconvert to my Toshiba AV-500u 720p LCD though HDMI Philips HDMI cable. Audio is run through Sony optical cable to my Yamaha RX-V630 6.1 surround receiver with Klipsch RB-15's, Klipsch center and sub, and always sounds great

Once or twice a month the player will freeze and I'll have to unplug and plug it back in

Great buy for the price. Can't imagine much better in the Spring of '08


It's really hard to criticize anything about this player. About the only 'con' is when you pause a movie/DIVX file -- I'm not sure the actual time it takes for it to auto-shutoff, but it happens relatively quickly (around 15-20 minutes, I'd guess). But...

menu navigation, small physical size, nice remote, great DIVX decoding

auto-shutoff kicks in very quickly

Almost every format supported that you can think of and through USB!


This player blew me away. I bought it without even reading the reviews, loved it and then read to find that others loved it as well. The main reason I purchased the dv400 was the USB input but I was skeptical about the divx playback. I've read about...

Multiple file formats supported, USB drive, Good upconversion, Tons of customization in screen settings

Interface can be a little slow, Could use an optical out, wish it supported DVD-A but can't have it all

Blown Away !!!


I bought this DVD player along with the Pioneer PDP 5080 HD Plasma as an upgrade to my home theater. This by far has been two of the best investments I have made in years. I'm looking to upgrade my a/v receiver to the Pioneer VXS-94TXH 7.1 to complete...

Excellent upconverting to1080p. Value : cost = Unmatched by any other standard DVD player

Cannot play WMV encoded discs with HDMI output

Impressed by the quality


I work for a major consumer retailer, in the hometheater field. I have seen almost ever upconversion dvd player we carry and i have to say by far this is the best one i have seen yet. The only thing even compares would be the Yamaha DV-S5950BL, and the...

Upscaling superb, better than most upconversion dvd players that i have seen

no optical output, digital coax works just fine though

A Very Good Value


I bought this DVD player to accompany my new HDTV, figuring I can wait until there's a winner or a soon-to-be winner in the HD-DVD/Blu Ray battle. I purchased a region-free version too (, which increased the price, but I...
