    Pioneer BDP-80FD vs Sony & Panasonic BD Players

    Here is my comparison of the Pioneer BDP-80FD and three other blu-ray players. I purchased and compared four different blu-ray players (Sony S6500, Sony S5500, Panasonic DMP-BDT460, and the Pioneer BDP-80FD) trying to find the best bang for my buck. I also tested the DVD upscaling ability of each player. All tests were done with the 'Standard' or 'Auto' setting on each player. Display: Panasonic TC-P60ZT60 on THX Cinema Mode Test Discs: Pixar's Toy Story 2 Blu-ray, Pixar's Toy Story 2 DVD Scenes: Woody's Restoration, Jessie's Song (Flashback Scene), Buzz's visit to Al's Toy Barn In Woody's Restoration, I looked for the details on Woody's face and body, depth and realism on the restorer's face, and the texture on the surface of pump. In Jessie's Song, I looked for the ability to differentiate between the color of Jessie's hair and her hat. I also looked for the difference in the texture between her braided hair and the felt of her hat. The scene where Jessie plays with Emily in the park, with the constantly changing light and the 'lens flare', was a litmus test for the players. In the Al's Toy Barn scene, you see a wall of green and blue from the Buzz Lightyear packages on the shelf. I looked for the ability to display the colors in a controlled way, without any color 'bloom' or smearing. The Pioneer did the best job of displaying accurate, lifelike color. I found very little 'banding' or color 'bloom' on even the most challenging scenes. In addition, the images were 3-Dimensional, with a lot of depth and texture. It clearly showed the texture of Jessie's hair and the felt in her hat. The restorer's craggy face was stunning with excellent contrast and clarity, without any false-sharp edges. In the Toy Barn scene, it controlled the colors very well, with absolutely no smearing. Other players did not control the colors as well as the Pioneer or convey any depth in that scene. My ranking of the players: The Pioneer was the overall winner by a wide margin. 1. Pioneer BDP-80FD: Excellent performer. Brilliant, lifelike picture. Very 3-Dimensional. Excellent color rendition. Excellent DVD upscaling, with no visible artifacts. 2. Sony S6500: Very good. Lacked the depth and 3-Dimensionality of the Pioneer. DVD Upscaling is also a step below the Pioneer. 3. Panasonic DMP-BDT460: Very good DVD upscaling, but fell short on color accuracy. 4. Sony S5500: The worst of the lot. Poor color rendition, and clearly lacking in depth and 3-Dimensionality. This exercise took a lot of time and almost exhausted my wife's patience. But, it was very enlightening. It put to rest, once and for all, the lie that all blu-ray players 'put out identical images'. The difference was most stark when comparing the Sonys (even the picture setting options are different). I kept the Pioneer for my main system (because I wanted the best), and the Sony S6500 for my bedroom (because I wanted a more economical alternative for the less demanding system). I hope this review helps anybody who is on the fence .....

    If you are looking for a smart BD player don't look here. But if you are looking for a player that does an excellent job at the quality of the picture and set up flexibility at a cost less than an Oppo, this was a no brainer, especially on open box buy. I had $80-ish smart BD player and it's picture quality and color depth (using the same TV) is nowhere close to the Elite. Besides, I have Apple TV and a Smart TV if I want to stream from the net. If there is a 4K TV in your near future and you plan on buying 4K movies this it not for you, but if I do make the move to 4K, based on this unit, the Elite series from Pioneer will be on my radar.

    My Oppo Blu-Ray player is in for repair so I decided I needed a decent back-up for the time being. I walked into my local Best Buy to see what they had and happened upon a stack of Pioneer BDP-80FD's on sale for $199.95 and once I made sure that it had stereo analog RCA outputs I grabbed one up. Yeah, I have a dinosaur Denon receiver, however, it is in outstanding condition. Anyway, my new Sony XBR-55X850 TV still looks fantastic (with the Pioneer) so enough said.

    Great picture, build quality lacking for an Elite

    I purchased the BDP80 FP to compliment my Pioneer Elite receiver and so I could use one remote. The picture was great,and it sounded fine. I was going to replace my Marantz UD5007. The unit was noisy when loading and unloading. The receiver remote would not operate but the most basic functions. The build quality is just not Elite quality. I returned it and kept the UD5007. The BDP80 is ok and is pretty standard for the lower end.

    I bought this to complement my pioneer vsx-90 receiver and it does just that. The two work flawlessly together. Turn on the blue ray player and it switches over automatically to the right HDMI port. I programmed the vsx-90 remote to operate the player and added in an open/close function and all I need is the one remote. Picture is excellent and plays movies with Dolby Atmos.

    So after a year and infrequent use, the unit stopped working. Won’t turn on. Unplugged, Reconnected and still nothing. I doubt I watched more than five discs on this thing. I’ve always had good luck with Pioneer, I figured the elite series would be better. I hate paying extra for “warranty”coverage. Maybe the next one will come form Costco where they just take it back.

    Pioneer elite products represent great build quality and performance with a 2yr warranty. This Blu-ray player has great features, a great picture and awesome sound. 4k upscaling is best left to a quality receiver or 4k tv in my opinion. 2 hdmis would have been nice, but performance is great as is.

    I bought this for its ability to backup and create High Resolution Digital audio files of my 70 or so SACDs. It is a little complicated and I won't go in to the process, but for those of you that have Super Audio CDs that have wanted to make 24bit copies, this unit can do it.
