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.
Summary: I've had this TV since January 2009, and the picture clarity continues to amaze me. Colours are pristine, and the image is absolutely razer sharp. Watching a 1080 broadcast is like looking out a window.

Summary: Just got my 5020 last week and this is the best TV that I have seen. I did a lot of research at high end stores and the side by side comparisons with the older 5010 model vs. any other tv (lcd or plasma) wasn't even close.
Summary: I received my 5020 Pioneer plasma last week. My son, who is an audiophile, had been pushing me to take the plunge for some time. I visited him during the Christmas holidays and thoroughly enjoyed watching his 5020.
Summary: I could not be more satisfied with this television. Last year I bought a 42" Vizio LCD for gaming because it was the only 42" I could find under $1000. However, after upgrading my home theater audio with a new receiver/speakers and buying a PS3 to watch Blu-ray movies, I really discovered what a...
Summary: Update March 2013: This TV still runs great. The picture quality has not diminished as far as we can tell. Recently ran an HDTV/Blu-ray setup disc (HD Essentials) and no adjustments were required when we checked each test graph and grid.
