Summary: Pioneer Announces Display Business Change Pioneer announced on February 12, 2009 it will withdraw from the display business by March 2010. While this has been a celebrated category for many years, display production is not economically viable at this time.
Summary: Great TV, but you need to be aware of an issue with getting service on this TV. If had the TV hung on a wall, you must have the TV down for the service to happen. I This is a pretty whopping sized box (technical term) and it takes two people to take it down.
Summary: Outstanding color rendition, deep blacks, perfect clarity, remote is a bit cluttered/confusing, price is very high. Workmanship on my unit was not good, there was no product support. Authorized repair shops poo-poo fixing without warranty coverage. Flawless performance for literally 52 weeks.
Summary: I normally write rather long, detailed reviews of electronics, but in this case, I'll be brief. As of October 2008, you will NOT find a better picture on any LCD or Plasma TV anywhere. "But what about that Samsung I saw at Best Buy?" -- This is better.
Summary: My Pioneer TV is still sitting in my garage because the home theater installer I hired, Patrick Williams, Home Theater & Technology of Woodstock, Georgia took my $6,000.00 deposit and didn't come back to install my system.
Summary: I have been searching for a flat panel TV to buy for the past year and a half. I had been scoping this set out for a least a year and finally decided to take the plunge after hearing Pioneer decided to stop making plasma sets all together.
Summary: This is a great plasma TV, every friend of mine who saw it was very impressed. The only other set that is a smidgeon better and looks better(but hard to see the difference in the picture quality) is Pioneer PRO-150FD (same specs and the best TV picture at any price).
Summary: In doing my search for the best HDTV on the market, everything pointed to two TVs the Samsung LCDs that are LED backlit vs. the Kuro. Now the Kuro you could get the Elite version but I really didn't need the additional color controls for a the price differential. Now back to plasma (Kuro) vs.
