Pioneer set the bar High. Pioneer and everything else.

Summary: I cant tell you the horrible feeling I had in my gut when Pioneer announced they would no longer be making TVs. At the time, Pioneer was getting rave reviews. Even those folks choosing other TVs, were deciding on price alone. For YEARS, Pioneer TVs were setting the bar high. There was Pioneer and then there was everything else. FIT AND FINISH Taking a look at the fit and finish, this TV is loaded with features in a gorgeous container.
Pros: great blacks and color
Cons: it gets warm. the market is FINALLY catching up. High Price?
my third KURO is terrific - they're all terrific !!

Summary: background - My first HDTV in 2006: 40" Sony Bravia LCD (good with faults), my parents bought a Panasonic plasma 3 months later (I knew THEN that plasma was MUCH better PQ) ... my second HDTV purchase was the NEWEST Pioneer, KURO 4280 (a finer, more satisfying PQ than the Panasonic) in the summer of 2007. January 2008 I sold the Sony LCD and replaced that with a KURO 5080, a larger version of my fabulous 42". My Kuro 4280 became my parents second plasma in FEB '08 ...
Summary: I received delivery of a 50 Inch KURO on Jan 28, 2009. Although the picture is gorgeous, there is a very noticeable buzzing from the set. The brighter the picture, the louder the buzzing! I believe this has to be a defective set, since it is clearly audible from 15+ feet away. It ruins the experience of watching a movie, as you can hear the buzzing when there is a lull in the volume.
