  • Great Combi Player!

    Mar 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays everything, quiet!
    Cons: Remote is not backlit

    Summary: I bought the Pioneer DVL-919 because the local library has a huge collection of Laserdiscs. Of course, the DVD and CD section of the player is what I use most! I got a huge markdown to $550 because it was the last one they had and they were ... read more

  • GREAT Laser Player

    Mar 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Crystal clear picture, super sound, S-Video hookup
    Cons: Noisy at startup and when changing sides on laser discs, miniscule remote buttons

    Summary: Since I collect laser discs and my old machine bit the dust after 15 years I invested in this combo player, and am not sorry that I did. The picture is dramatic crystal clear with no flaking or speckling, dramatic sound compared to the old machine and ... read more

  • Do you really need Lasersdisc?

    Apr 30, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays Laserdisc and DVD and CD.
    Cons: Big unit, noisy when playing.

    Summary: I am a Star Wars nut and I really do not like VHS tapes, so the only thing I could watch Star Wars in digital format is through Lasersdisc. The laserdisc format actually works better thant he DVD on this unit. Somehow, it is alittle noisy ... read more

  • Just Okay

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works fine
    Cons: Cheap remote, expensive

    Summary: I purchased this LD/DVD player to replace my aging and crippled LD player. Since I own almost 100 LDs and didn't want to buy them all over again on DVD since there isn't too much of a quality difference, I was in the market for an LD player. Not willing ... read more

  • A Very Versatile Machine

    Oct 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Versatile, Easy to Setup, Performance, Build
    Cons: Dimensionally Too Long, Quite Expensive

    Summary: Bought this product as I need a DVD player to complete a home theatre package for my new home. Choose this model as I thought it might be handy to be able to play LDs, as I thought there still might be a chance that I'll have to watch LDs. Turned out ... read more

  • Excellent Transition Unit

    Jun 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One Box for multiple purposes
    Cons: Cost

    Summary: If, like me, you prefer the qualify of LD over tape, you probably are running into the same problem people with large collections of old vinyl records ran into with the coming of CDs. Like CDs vs LPs, DVDs offer great quality and a much more compact ... read more

  • the best there is

    Mar 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: everything
    Cons: none

    Summary: Pioneer's DVL-919 is one of the few laserdisc (LD) players available to hard core videophiles, some of whom still prefer the analog-video format to DVD's compressed digital video. Fortunately, the DVL-919 accommodates both formats. If you're searching ... read more

  • Great player

    Mar 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays Laserdiscs and DVDs
    Cons: Region I only DVD player

    Summary: I bought this unit on sale for $999 and I love it! I have about 80 laserdiscs and I wanted to try out DVDs too and this unit fit the bill perfectly! I have an old Pioneer laserdisc player that I'm going to sell now that I have this great unit! It even ... read more

  • Wonderful DVD player!

    Jan 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: GREAT image and sound, looks amazing
    Cons: price is a little steep

    Summary: For nearly 3 months, I had been longing for this player. I have many laserdiscs and DVDs, but I had no LD or DVD player (how's that for being smart, hahahah). Last December, I finally had raised enough money to buy this mammoth of a DVD player, and ... read more

  • Nice Unit

    Dec 17, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays both DVD's and LD's ; Great Picture
    Cons: Certain DVD's have sound sync problem

    Summary: I kind of ran into this item by mistake. I was looking for a DVD/LD player. I had a older Pioneer LD player and was happy with it. I was walking through the store and the salesperson asked if I needed any help. I told her what I was looking for and ... read more

    Pros: DTS decoding for both laserdiscs and DVDs. Component video output.
    Cons: The price is the only con. But come on, its a laserdisc player.

    Summary: I just purchased this LD/DVD combo player and could not be more thrilled with its performance. Being the proud ownder of over 400 laserdiscs, I had to keep the format alive and well. So I replaced my DVL-700 with this model. It is truly great with its ... read more
