The bad news never stops rolling for Blu-ray this season, as Pioneer's BDP-HD1 got rolled back to a December release. Originally planned for October, the BDP-HD1 "has not passed the company's quality control requirements, and it will be available when it does."
It was originally supposed to be available in May for $1,500, but various "development delays" caused a delay. Our own Lam said "Aha! That's why they didn't send me a unit." We didn't have the heart to tell him that the real reason was all the review units he sends back end up smelling like dog farts and Puppy Chow. And he doesn't even have a dog!
