Summary: Ah, would ye be castin' your minds back now to the dark days of recession ... way back to May of 2009. The spring thaw never came, gas and grocery prices kept risin', homeless men sat on street corners with cardboard signs that said "Will Wurk 4 Beer" and, worst of all, me girlfriend bought orange...
Pros: Excellent image quality, Natural color, Performance undiminished after 4 years of use, Excellent room heater
Cons: Excellent room heater, Makes electric meter spin faster, Expensive - sold several body parts to afford purchase.
Almost, perfection. If you want perfection buy the Elite version.

Summary: I am a TV enthusiast and possibly what many call videophiles where i demand almost perfection from my displays. My current plasma was/is a Panasonic 800u with the THX mode. This was a great plasma but the legend of the Kuro is not hype.
Awesome plasma tv, especially for sports and movie buffs!

Summary: Without getting into all the technical details about this plasma (there is plenty available on Pioneer's website, CNET, etc...), I'm just going to say that in my opinion Pioneer's Kuro line is still the best plasma ever made.
Summary: I just recently purchased the Pioneer Kuro PDP-5020 from Amazon and I couldn't have been happier. I ordered the TV on a Monday evening and I had the TV in my house on the Thursday of the same week.
Summary: Here is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.....according to my observations and general tests. I ordered this Pioneer plasma tv from Amazon on July 16th and promplty received it via CEVA trucking on July 18th.
Summary: I spent much time comparing the KURO's with other top of the line plasma TVs and the picture was always best on the KURO. It's even better in my living room! Was incredibly easy to set up. Amazon's White Glove service was awesome.
Great choice for videophiles that aren't video-nuts!

Summary: I looked for around 6 months for a new HDTV to replace a Sony XBR1 40" I've had for several years. After spending way to much time reading CNETs reviews, I settled upon this TV. The performance is excellent.
Summary: After 4+ months, TV still rocks. Though I'm somewhat hampered by Time Warner HD, with an abysmal selection of channels, I'm still very happy with my purchase. The only thing I've had any second thoughts about is whether I should have sprung for the Elite, at about a grand more.
Summary: I have now owned this plasma tv for about a year and it is still amazing to look at it. I have other LCD's in the house and they do not even come close to the quality of this TV. It is a shame that Pioneer is exiting this space, more of a shame that quality no longer matters to enough people to pay...
