A no-frills player that does the job.


I've been looking for a dvd player for a while, and recently settled on the Pioneer DV-333. I was faced with many options, ranging from $99 to $999. I didn't want to shell out a lot of money, but I didn't want a piece of junk.

good quality, svcd/vcd/cdr support, fast load times

no lighted remote

All DVD'd Up


Pioneer's DV-333 was on many year-end best of 2000 lists as it proved to be a great DVD entry point for the non-Early Adopter crowd.

Excellent picture, advanced connections, plays self-burned CDs

No progressive scan, marketing confusion

A great start for the DVD fanatic!


When Christmas rolls around, everybody is rushing to buy the best and the most expensive products because they automatically assume that the best is the one with the most dollar signs. Unfortunately, those people only end up with a DVD player just...

easy to use, simple, gets the job done, multi-functional

no "bells and whistles"

Great DVD for the price.


I finally decided to break down and buy a DVD player this past weekend.

Ease of use. Nice Remote. DD/DTS built-in. Easy to setup.

No built in 5.1 or 480p.

Pioneer DV-333 DVD Player


The entry-level DVD player, like the basic television set, has become a commodity item. Since the interlaced-resolution (non-progressive-scan) DVD players offer almost-uniformly-high picture quality, you should let price, features, and styling guide...

First off, I am not an electronics expert by any means. But believe me when I say this is the best piece electronic component I have ever bought.

Inexpensive, great quality

No zoom, little remote

Pioneer DV-333


This is the second Pioneer piece of equipment I've owned. The first was a receiver I got for Christmas in like '85 or so. It did the job, was pretty cheap, and it worked well. It ran for FOREVER, and I ended up passing it on to someone else because...

Totally easy to use, plays everything

What cons?

DV-333 plays SVCD, Burnt Audio CD's, Great Audio!


When I first was looking for a DVD player I took a SVCD on a CDRW, a burnt audio CD on a CDR, and the Matrix DVD. They where my test disc.

Product Specifications

The Pioneer DV-333 DVD player features 10-Bit 27 MHz Video D/A Conversion that provides rapid processing of the video signal with less signal loss, ensuring maximum image resolution and images free of artifacts. Video Black Level Expansion with Pluge is an essential image-enhancing feature for expanding contrast and producing the deepest blacks available in any video format. The Black cutoff level ranges from 7.5 IRE NTSC standard to 0 IRE for wider gray scale contrast, which delivers more vibrant colors. Plus, the system is capable of reproducing "Blacker than Black" Pluge signals, critical for setting proper picture brightness levels. Component Video Outputs provide the highest level of video signal transfer quality available today when connected to televisions equipped with compatible inputs. By dividing the video signal into component elements, component video outputs deliver a remarkable improvement in picture detail at maximum resolution, with unmatched color purity and edge detail. Color blooming and "hanging dots" are eliminated, as well as the other NTSC artifacts. DTS Compatibility allows this DVD player to pickup and output DTS (Digital Theater System) 5.1 channel audio signals for decoding by DTS-decoding receivers. The sound of DTS is three-dimensional with a wide dynamic range and a minimum of compression artifacts. 96 kHz/24-bit Audio D/A Converter Maximizes DVD and CD audio performance capability, providing smoother, less digitized transitions, and richer sonic texture. Coaxial Digital Audio Input is featured for connection of other digital audio sources such as MD players, for incredible sonic performance. This player is equipped Twin-Wave Laser Pickup for playing DVDs and CDs, Video CDs and CD-Rs. The player automatically detects which type of disc is loaded, and activates the appropriate diode to provide the optimal laser wavelength for playback. The pickup's twin-wave design provides the best possible performance regardless of format. Viterbi RF Decoding Process applies a sophisticated parametric statistical analysis to enhance correction of disc data errors caused by fingerprints, dust, and warping, thereby considerably reducing the error rate. More simply put, fewer errors means higher fidelity audio and video, and a more pleasant entertainment experience. Advanced Graphical User Interface simplifies control of a versatile range of operations, allowing all commands to be set up even as a disc plays. Basic mode keeps settings simple and displays function descriptions. Expert mode allows audio/video enthusiasts to select among more detailed settings. Guide Indication displays available operations and makes them easy to monitor. When connected to a receiver or amplifier with a Dolby Digital or DTS decoder through either the optical or coaxial digital outputs, you can enjoy the phenomenal experience of video through five discrete full range channels, whether for stunning sound effects or crystal clear dialogue.
