Pioneer set the bar High. Pioneer and everything else.
20 August 2013
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.
Pros: great blacks and color
Cons: it gets warm. the market is FINALLY catching up. High Price?
Summary: According to a report on CNET - Pioneer will stop production by Mar 2010. "Pioneer has confirmed that it's exiting the TV business. The Japanese manufacturer announced that it will stop producing TVs by March 2010, and instead focus on its existing car electronics and home audio-video lines.
Summary: We purchased this plasma as a replacement to our Pioneer PDP5070HD. Although the picture is better than other plasma manufacturers that we looked at we are concerned that it is not has good as our last Pioneer.
Summary: Finally took the plunge and got rid of the gigantic 50" rear projection Mitsubishi - which was a wonderful non-HD television, frankly - and moved to thin and plasma. Wow, what a savings of space!
Summary: Excellent picture and sound quality. I'm still learning on how to make adjustments. The automatic 'OPTIMUM' setting sems to work fine under most conditions. Used the 'SPORT' setting with a slight color and tint adjustment and the NCAA tourney games looked fantastic.
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...
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.
