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 underwear and said t'was all she could afford. I tell ya, lads, the wail of a banshee woulda been more welcome than the sight o' them orange knickers in the cold mornin' light.
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. This thing just completely outclasses the Panasonic when it comes to black levels and overall contrast.
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. The picture is beautiful (especially in High Definition (HD) or when watching Blu-Ray). Standard definition (SD) is less than desired, but this applies to all manufacturers. You don't buy a Pioneer to watch through SD.
