Pioneer returns in style with a budget 3D Blu-ray Player by hodg Dec 30, Review Specs Discussion Home AV Review.

The suggested retail price of the BDPK is north of that but it is fairly easily available online for around that mark. Whatever it is, it works and lends the BDPK a certain desirability when viewed in the flesh.

Then we have Video Adjust that leads the user to another screen where Brightness, Contrast, Hue and Saturation sliders can be set. There is an additional video adjustment available when the Custom Video Mode is chosen — CTI Colour Transient Improvement that performs upsampling of the colour information on the disc but that can only be set effectively per display as interactions between them and attached players will vary.

Other settings in this area are Sharpness and Noise Reduction that are best left at their lowest points for the reasons just alluded to.

We began by installing the Pioneer Control app which works with iPod touch, iPhone and Android devices and it works very well indeed, allowing a full facsimile of the handset on your mobile device. Media playback from both USB and over a network was also very strong and we threw a series of video formats at the BDPK without it skipping a beat and although.

Online content is restricted to YouTube, Netflix and Picassa but each functioned flawlessly and subscribers to Netflix will welcome the dedicated button on the remote that takes you to the service directly.

We viewed a couple of 3D Blu-rays — Monster House and Grand Canyon Adventures — through a resident 3D panel and we came across no unpleasant artefacting. The Video Mode settings have no influence over the 3D output but they do on the 2D. The same can be said of the Custom mode and that may be worth using if your display tends to show up posterisation banding effects as the CTI control was quite effective in upping the colour resolution.

Both the Cinema and Vivid Modes are best avoided; the Cinema mode is way too dim and Vivid is, frankly, unspeakable. For some more 3D testing, we went back to the excellent Titanic conversion and the now almost worn out Avatar and, again, we sensed no added crosstalk or unexpected surprises.

Budget player this might be but the BDPK shows why Pioneer has such a great reputation for video processing with outstanding performance in deinterlacing and cadence detection tasks as well as transferring that over from test discs to actual content you might want to watch. Ours Spears and Munsil Benchmark disc jaggies test was displayed as cleanly as could have been hoped for at i and likewise for the HQV version. The BDP was also capable of picking up on film cadences sent in interlaced signals with no evidence of moire or break-up.

Well, who can resist? With Quick Start turned on in the Options sub-menu, typically the Pioneer got to the copyright notice in 20 – 30 seconds depending on the disc but getting to the actual menu page could take a little longer, although in fairness this is as much dependent on the Java encoding on the disc as it is the player. The load up times for DVDs were about equivalent. Energy Consumption Standby: 0. The fact that the unit is ultra-quiet in operation is also another major plus.

The menu systems are attractive and responsive to command but we wish there weren’t confusing viewing mode options. The signal is left intact at the default, Standard, setting however so they should just have left it at that.

As hoped and expected, at default settings, the Pioneer added none of its own influence to p Blu-ray discs. We checked with both our Klein K with patterns as well as real world reference material and found near identical output to a range of other reliable Blu-ray players we own.

The same was equally true for 3D Blu-ray discs but where the processing gets to really shine — with interlaced and standard definition content — the BDPK was also hugely impressive with excellent scaling, cadence detection and deinterlacing capabilities.
