Another solid Pioneer product


I remember the time when Sony came up with their really small PC, with the little camera in it... I thought my laptop was pretty small and lightweight, and with it being my first laptop, I was amazed how they can stuff everything in there, and then...

Lots of Features... Great value!


Before I purchased this unit, I shopped around to find all of the features I wanted (good quality MP3 playback, optical digital output). This one turned out to be the best for the money.

slim, MP3 playback

MP3 filenames limited to 8 characters

Great DVD player for the price


This DVD player is economical yet has all of the features for the average movie watcher. It has digital as well as coaxial outputs, easy to connect to any system. The remote control buttons are a little small, but extremely easy to use once you get...

Slim, compact, great picture quality, plays MP3, Easy to use

Solid DVD unit


If you've looked at the features of the unit and they suit your needs, this is an outstanding unit. It's playback is very solid. It has the feel of a well-built product. The small size will help it fit in areas already holding a VCR. The unit is...

Small, same size as Pioneer audio equipment, quiet

Pioneer DV-444-K


I had been using a Technics midi-sized Hi-Fi system for several years (about 6 I think). Along with that there was a Sony Minidisc recorder deck, a VHS deck, a Wharfdale DVD player and a digital TV receiver. Too much! I wanted to reduce the amount of...

Very slim profile. Choice of colours (silver, black). Plays MP3 files from CD-R and CD-RW.

Might not play recordable DVD formats. Some might miss not having component video output.

Good for the money, good for the show!


What a better use of my 21 month old's extra Christmas money and the rest of the money from my returned gifts than to buy a DVD player! Of course, now I'm watching "Lady and the Tramp", "101 Dalmations", and other "Doggie!" movies multiple times in...

Slim-line design, excellent picture quality, user friendly interface

MP3 menu system isn't the best, some contradictions on controls in the manual.

DVD's and MP3's, please!


For Christmas this year, my mother wanted to buy my family a ?family gift?, and suggested getting us a DVD player. Rather than trudging out to the store, buying no particular unit, and shipping it 800 miles to us, she simply sent me a check for $150...

Excellent picture and sound quality in a sleek and handsome unit.

Plays MP3's well enough, but MP3 menu navigation was an obvious afterthought.

No Ghostbusters?


I purchased the DV-440 because I wanted a "good" DVD player that would last and would play MP3s as well. When I found the Pioneer DV-440 I was astounded at the price, under $200 for a DVD player that plays MP3s!

Plays MP3s, Slim design, Component video outs and digital audio out, Nice menuing system

Doesn't support MP3 ID3 tags, Remote not lighted, Problems playing Ghostbusters (see review)

Great picture


Over all, I think this is a good buy. It has great picture and it looks really dependable. That's what the American consumers want. They want to be able to buy a product and be able to use it with out any hassle. It was really easy to set up with...

Good picture, over all dependability seems good

sometimes the player needs cleaning

Product Specifications

The deceptively slim DV-440 packs a major DVD punch: its 10-bit video D-A converter delivers superbly accurate images, and its Pioneer Viterbi error correction and high-end D-A conversion provide exceptional sound quality. The DV-440 is equipped to decode Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound processing, so the latest movies will be even more exciting. For watching a movie in fine detail, its trick play features include Still Step Play in forward and reverse, as well as Slow Motion Play. Small machine, big impact.
