Summary: I dont think it does justice to this or other Plasma / LCD TVs to compare Pioneer Kuro with them. They are in two different leagues. No one cam come even close to this except Pioneer Kuro Elite..which loses out on price.
Summary: As other reviewers have already stated with plenty of supporting information, the picture quality of this set is fantastic, even if you're watching an SD broadcast, and the sound from the detachable speaker bar is good enough to let you forgo, or at least put off, investing in a surround-sound...
Summary: Had to throw my two cents in - I have owned this TV for over a year, and even now in stores I see NOTHING that bests it as far as picture quality, and most don't even come close, especially with black levels. I watch mostly movies, SD is good, HD is great, and Blu-Ray is absolutely amazing!
Summary: I went back and forth for at least a year, plasma or LCD. Unless you have a particularly bright room plasma takes the prize. I've had this pioneer about 3 months. My buddy bought a 50" Sony LCD about the same time. We've watched football on both TVs.
Summary: The Pioneer Kuro is a step above the rest of the best. It provides the COLOR, clarity, sharpness, that brings the screen to life. I've looked and shopped for quite some time before deciding on the Pioneer Kuro. It has been well worth the wait.
Summary: After shopping and reviewing flat panel T.V.'S for over a year,all roads kept leading back to Pioneer. After finally biting the bullet and taking the plunge, I chose the KURO 5010. Well the moment of truth arrived when I recieved the T.V. and and got it hooked up to an HD signal. WOW!
Summary: I've had this TV for about 3 months now and it is amazing. When I go to other people's houses and look at their non-Kuro plasmas, or even LCDs, I quietly snicker when they tell me how amazing the picture is on their sets. They don't know what they're missing!
Summary: First, the purchase and delivery experience: I purchased the pdp-5010fd directly from amazon.com, and I could not have been happier with the experience. I ordered it online on Saturday evening, and the local delivery company called me on Wednesday to arrange for a delivery time on Thursday morning.
Summary: After considerable time and effort over the last few months researching what "type" of HDTV to get, plasma won over LCD. With this choice behind me, the KURO pretty much dominated the competition. I spent countless hours looking at screens in stores.
