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. For those consumers still considering purchasing an award-winning Pioneer KURO display, current models are available at our retail partners and Pioneer plans to continue supporting service needs, replacement parts and...
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. Scan boards (2x), Drive boards (2x) and power supply burnout resulting in catastrophic failure $1500 and 60 days without TV. Pioneer refused any warranty authorization.
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. "But what about that Sony I saw at Circuit City?" -- This is better. The blacks are solid. The reds pop off the screen like you won't believe. Buy this TV, don't look back, and you'll be as happy as you can be.
Summary: I admit I am not an expert in this area. Nor was I looking for all the toys/gadgets that let you do anything and everything with your television. Just someone who wanted a great television for his family. After the research, settled on the Pioneer PDP-6010FD . I have not been disappointed. The picture is excellent, the internal settings and options are easy to follow and it simply looks great.
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. I paid him for the TV but I ended up having to buy it from 6th Avenue myself because he took my money. This is a warning to anyone hiring a home theater installer - don't hire this thief and be careful of who you do hire.
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. It ended up costing me quite a bit, but once you see the picture.. you realize the 5k is worth EVERY single penny. The blacks are simply remarkable. And no matter how long I look at it, the set simply continues to impress me.
Summary: I'm TOLD it's a great television. I ordered this from Amazon in March 2008. When the installers went to install it, the screen was totally shattered. Only the plastic film in it was holding it in place. I contacted Amazon and went through all their channels, and they refuse to replace it. Of course I'm entering into a lawsuit with them over it, but in the meantime, I have a television that they sent in broken condition that they refuse to replace.
Summary: I wont review the set beyond saying it is a gorgeous TV, it really does everything the reviewers said it would. Simple set up, wonderful image quality. I originally ordered thru an Amazon Marketplace dealer (not Amazon itself), they delivered a set that was (thru no fault of theirs), damaged. They were out of stock, I eventually cancelled the order after 21 additional days and placed another order for the TV thru Amazon itself.
