Pioneer Kuro PDP-5020FD Review

The Best Plasma TV
3 September 2012

22 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Plasma technology continues to edge out LCD in the area of black level reproduction, and the Pioneer KURO continues to do blacks better than even the best competitive plasmas. Let's hope Pioneer continues to attain - or even to surpass - these levels of performance in the coming years, when they...
  • Pros: Deep velvety blacks give images a near three-dimensional quality, Excellent detail with no digital haze or artifacts on 1080p sources, 72 Hz mode gives 24 FPS film sources a more natural film-like look without imparting an overly smooth video-like quality to moving images, "Optimum" mode will do ...

Pioneer Kuro PDP-5020FD

8 August 2008
  • Summary: As the flagship plasma TV for Pioneer’s lineup, the Kuro is an ultra-elite, high-definition flat-screen that will probably only appeal to consumers who are willing to pay the price of admission.

Pioneer KURO PDP-5020FD

1 March 2009
  • Summary: 50-дюйм экран имеет собственное разрешение 1080p, но не способен принимать 1080p-сигнал через компонентный вход. Чтобы работать с полным разрешением, нужно подавать сигнал на HDMI-входы.
  • Pros: Отличное качество воспроизведения HD-видео. Потрясающе высокая контрастность. Великолепное качество звука. Сетевые средства мультимедиа.
  • Cons: Искажения при воспроизведении видео стандартного разрешения (SD).
