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. 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?
Summary: If your budget allows, this is BY FAR the best plasma you can get at J&R (Pioneer Elite is a step above, but not available at J&R and quite a bit more expensive). Blows away LCD (which is really only good for regular TV or slow action HD such as nature shows... and only then if the unrealistic brightness and lack of contrast don't bother you). If you want sports or Blu-ray movies then you want Plasma, and if you want the best, this is the set.
