Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pioneer BDP-160-K 3D HDMI Blu-ray Player - Black (Electronics)
A very disappointing blu-ray player. My LG 3D blu-ray player was way too noisy, and I'd read that this Pioneer one was quiet with good picture quality. The good news first: it is very quiet. The bad news: within the first hour of playing a 3D blu-ray, the 3D turned on and off randomly a total of four times, saying 3D couldn't be detected, before turning back on again. On top of this, there are also random, white flashes across the screen, and numerous audio drop outs, making for an extremely poor experience. Maybe I'd got a defective one, but experience tells me that these things are more often than not, design faults or just poor build quality across the range. Life's too short, so I will be getting a refund, and spending a bit more on a better player.

I think you are probably right about the poor build quality. At least twice a week there is no picture coming out of the player so it has to unplugged from the mains for a few seconds. It always works perfectly ok again afterwards but it is a bit of a bore and a chore having to do this so often and it is the sort of thing you would expect from a supermarket own brand than a prestigous name like Pioneer.
