Pioneer Finally Launches 3D Blu-Ray Players
 
 

Pioneer, one of those consumer electronics companies that's known mainly for its high-end products, has finally joined the 3D Blu-ray game by shipping out its first line of players to support the new medium.

Part of the company's "Elite" brand, the BDP-41FD and BDP-43FD are built with high-grade components, integration to home automation set-ups, and of course the snazzy "Elite" letters emblazoned on the front.

Meanwhile, the BDP-430 is a standard, non-Elite Blu-ray 3D player. But it has pretty much the same features. All three have built-in memory so they can remember where you left off with every Blu-ray movie you stop part way through.

They all also have Ethernet ports for Internet connectivity, with wireless possible via an adapter at extra cost. Additionally, Pioneer's slate of Internet TV apps are here, including YouTube, Netflix, and Pandora.

The coolest part, though, is that all three have support for Apple's iOS platform. That means you can control your movies and other content with your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. In other words, it's just further proof that before too long you'll be able to do everything with your iPhone.

The new Pioneer Blu-ray 3D players are probably a bit too late for the holiday shopping season, but they're available nonetheless. The BDP-430 carries a $299 price point, while the Elite BDP-41FD and BDP-43FC retail for $399 and $499, respectively. The latter throws in an "armored chassis" for the extra $100. That's for all your Blu-ray viewers who take your players with you to war zones and sewage treatment plants. I guess.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
