Thumbs up First Review of the Pioneer Elite BDP-HD1 Blu-ray Player - earns the top rating!

Quote:
The Pioneer’s updatability via the internet is a big plus. All other current players require you to wait for it to arrive via mail. While looks are subjective, the HD Guru prefers the Pioneer’s more conventional appearance. Add the Home Media capability and two-year warranty (double that of competitors) and for many buyers, the $500 price premium ($1500 retail compared to Sony’s $1000) will be well worth the added expenditure. The Pioneer Elite BDP-HD1 earns the top ♥♥♥♥ HD Guru rating.

Nice read. I'm not familiar with this site, do they normally give top scores quite easily or are they slightly more subjective?

Now, if only they would get rid of that BD logo on the top...

Interesting Review and thanks for sharing. IMHO I evaluated both the Pioneer and Sony players and ended up taking the Sony home today. Being a Pioneer Elite fan I found the performance of the unit slow and tiredsome although playback quality was good. I also felt that the build quaility and "look" of the unit was cheap looking and feeling for being a $1400 "Elite" model.
