Does anyone own or have any experience with the Pioneer DV-37?

    If so...Is it as good as the review I read on it? Is it actually a value for the $1000 price tag?

    I assume you read the SGHT review that I just read (!).
    Here's a different take on it:

    Not so glowing, unfortunately. (And I have a DV-05 that they really didn't like...)
    The trick with DVD player reviews on Secrets, is to compare reviews of different players against each other.

    I have the DV-37, and I have been pleased with its performance. Having said that, I will also say that the guys at Secrets have exposed some flaws, although at this point I'm lucky enough (and perhaps blind enough) that I haven't noticed. However, even if you, like me, couldn't see the problems, I think you could find an equal or better player for far less than $1000 (the Panasonics come to mind), with more features and fewer of these problems. For $1000, you would most certainly find a newer, better player.

    I'd agree with the others here. I have the DV-37 and if I had to do it all over again, I probably would not buy one. Don't get me wrong - it's not horrible and in many ways it's a good player - but it does have problems. First and foremost is the aforementioned chroma bug. This player has it pretty bad, and I notice it so it's bothersome. Deinterlacing performance seems ok, but I think for the money other companies are providing more quality and additional features.
    You may want to take a look at Panasonic's RP-91, which seems to be pretty popular among members.
