Plasma Television

  • Summary: I have had my Pioneer 42" Plasma T.V. for a year now, it was a well recommended set, and I can see why, the picture is excellent, the sound is adequate and the Freeview tuner works well. The only problem I have experienced is with the remote 'Power on/off' it sometimes needs holding down for a long time, for it to function.

A fantastic tv let down by not having full HD support

  • Excerpt: I purchased this TV a few years ago after looking around for an entire year deciding on a model. I managed to get a private trial of this tv at Sound and Vision. I'd recommended trying like this before buying to anyone! The 42'' screen of this tv is more than big enough for all but the biggest of rooms. It sits well as a focal point in an average sized room.

  • Summary: There is no doubt that Pioneer lead the pack at the moment with regards to Plasma screens. I have tested the 427XD and am very impressed with it. Yet if you want a Plasma screen to fit into a home cinema then my recommendation would be to go with its predecessor - the Pioneer 436XDE. Unlike the 427XD, the 436XDE has detachable side speakers. It also has the greater screen size - 43".

  • Summary: My God...its finally coming. Did you pre-order it? Does it need a 1080p tv? Is it Black? Is it shiny? Only if the answer is yes to all the above can you or SHOULD YOU consider purchasing this Pioneer or any Pioneer for that matter. I am off course considering this plasma purchase for my PlayStation 3 simply because if like the million other European PS3 owners who have just forked out up to £500, obtaining the best possible picture and performance while looking Icy Cool...
  • Pros: Is it metal? Is it plastic? Who cares when it looks this good & performs this well! Plasma or should I say Pioneer still lead the way....
  • Cons: Soon to be outdated & replaced by a 42-inch 5000-EX??

  • Summary: I spent 2 months reading reviews on this TV and then a month of standing in TV shops comparing pictures of various models in different formats (SD, HD, DVD, sports programmes, movies etc). The Pioneer beat all the other TVs in the same price bracket, particularly when it comes to watching sport. On top of all that it looks great.
  • Pros: Looks, HD picture, SD picture, price
  • Cons: Nothing

  • Summary: In deciding to take the plunge and purchase a new flatscreen my immediate idea was to go for a max-resolution LCD which was 1080p capable. Having conducted extensive research and spent time viewing a number of TVs, the Pioneer stood out for its design, quality build and superb picture quality. Having bought this TV I must say I am very impressed.
  • Pros: Exquisite minimalist design, superb picture across a range of formats, vibrant colours and deep blacks.
  • Cons: So far very little. HDMI limited to 1080/24p so no maximum upscaled DVDs, but hoping this may be an advantage once I get my Blu-ray player.

  • Summary: This is the only plasma that even on standard definition still gives off a 'wow' factor. The picture and colours are fantastic, especially the black and white levels. The sound quality out of this thing is amazing, clearly the best sound I've heard on a TV - it's like having a cinema system built inito it, it's pretty loud too if you like annoying your neighbours. I've been holding out for a 1080p television but I couldn't resist taking the plunge and I don't regret it.
  • Pros: Design, standard-definition enhancement, ease of use, sound quality/loudness
  • Cons: I think the picture could benefit from more pixels but there aint much room for improvement
