Pioneer BDP-62FD Universal Blu-ray Player


Introduction to the Pioneer BDP-62FD Blu-Ray Player

Every year Pioneer updates their Blu-ray players, and every year I wind up happy yet disappointed with them. Each year performance and features seem to improve only to have a flaw, like edge enhancement or poor colorspace support, derail the Pioneer from being really top notch. This year Pioneer is offering the BDP-62FD, a $400 universal Blu-ray player that carries the Elite badge and features dual HDMI outputs among other features.

This year has seen a number of excellent players come into the market, making the task even tougher for the Pioneer BDP-62FD. Has Pioneer improved upon the issues of the past couple of years to make a universal player that can stand out in today's crowded Blu-ray player market?
