Pioneer BDP-180-S 3D Blu-ray Player : Good value for money

Has anyone else who has one of these players experienced problems when playing bluray discs. Sometimes my player will show a screen of vertical lines, and emit a high pitched scream. I have to turn the player off at the mains to regain control. When the player works properly, it is superb.

Great sound and vision no fussy line at bottom of picture when plying dvd’s pity about the menu it could be better. Do not be put off by it though. When plying sa-cd’s you need to put the volume up a bit through the av unit.

Very good blu-ray player, the only downsides are the remote that seems very sluggish and not good except at an angle directly in front of machine, control buttons on machine also very slow to respond. Had player lock up once or twice and needed to pull mains lead out to get it to work again. This seems to have stopped at last. Picture and sound quality though is excellent. Shame the remote is not as good as on my older pioneer dv-57a dvd player.

Excellent product, great picture in any format.

I bought this pioneer bdp 180-k blu-ray player a couple of months ago i tend not to buy any other players other than panasonic, but i had read and seen this in a hifi shop and was impressed with the build quality, it is very well built for the price the picture and sound are very good as well. It does not do well however with online services this does not bother me at all i would give this player a 5/5 rating i am very pleased with my purchase.

The product arrived fast and perfectly.

Limited internet access only to you tube.

Very happy sound and picture excellent.

I had this player shipped to canada ,as it is not available in north america for some reason. The player has 4k upscaling for blu-ray disc’s and also 4k upscaling for youtube streaming. And wow the picture quality and detail is incredible, especially on youtube. I’am not sure a dedicated 4k player would be an advantage over this player, as it is about as perfect as you can get . The american domestic model is bdp-80fd, which does not have 4k upscaling. I modifided the player myself with a region free kit i purchased from the u. , now i can play blu-ray disc’s a ,b, c ,and dvd’s from around the world. I chose the silver finish to match my sony reciever and my other components.

The perfect all in one player,does everything it says on the box at a very affordable price.

Brilliant product chosen because it has additional rca stereo output for connection to existing hifi.

Pioneer 3d blueray, set up very easy good solid piece of kit classic pioneer looks.

Very easy to set up, exactly what i expected.

The picture is like so many other machines that are considerably cheaper. The menu is fiddly and dull. The only app available is youtube and the remote needs a strong push on the buttons to get it to work at all. Great at playing files through the usb but i haven’t tried them all.
