With features like True 24 FPS and 48 bit deep color, the Pioneer BDP-320 Blu-ray DVD player shows that you really can have the best home theater experience possible. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn take a look to see if it's worth the $300 price tag.
What You Need To Know
The Pioneer BDP-320 includes more outputs and connection options than the Insignia Blu-Ray player with 7.1 analog outputs you can hook up directly to your sound system, an optical audio out, component & composite video out and overall, many more than the usual DVD player.
It does not include other features like NetFlix and Pandora streaming.
They do include 1 gig of storage for BD Live downloadable content, which makes its easier since you don't need to plug in external storage.
We did expect more features from Pioneer, however.
Loading times were slower than they should have been.
The player did live up to our expectations with the highest video quality, which was incredibly detailed, vibrant and noise-free. We couldn't see any problems in the deep blacks, either.
Overall, this is the best we've seen so far, even over the PlayStation 3.
$300.00, and it is really up to the buyer to decide whether or not it's worth the price.
Pioneer's video and audio quality is much better than and we wish it had more features.
