Pioneer PDP-LX 5090 H


Extremely deep blacks., Low-judder HDTV video at 60i and 24p., Built-in HD tuner., USB and LAN connections for multimedia

Slight weaknesses in operation., Grey bars instead of black on 4:3 pictures., Limited brightness in daylight

This huge Pioneer plasma might suffer some quirks in its operation and picture presets, but it easily won our affections; we can’t help but be impressed by its top feature-set, excellent video processing, dreamlike picture quality, and maximum contrast...

Pioneer KURO PDP-LX5090 television review


When a plasma TV was as widely commended as the last generation KURO, it was always going to be a tough act to follow. Have Pioneer done enough to justify their status at the top? From a design point of view it can't really be faulted – a simple...

Great quality, excellent HD performance, even the remote feels superior

EPG a little primitive, no side HDMI, price

The Pioneer KURO PDP-LX5090 is a television that makes you want more, it makes you want to get the best from your home cinema set-up and deservedly so

Pioneer PDP-LX6090


This is the best television in the world - bar none

Best black levels ever ; Amazing detail and depth ; Future-proofed connectivity

Stands and speakers are optional extras

This has a secondary benefit; while blacks retain their integrity, brightness (white) is also represented with pinpoint accuracy

Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX6090 60in Plasma TV


Now in their 9th gen, Pioneer's Kuro TVs still reign supreme with this pricey 60in beast proving why.

Yes, the appearance of the first of the new LED TV generation means that the LX6090's black levels are no longer as far ahead of the chasing pack as they used to be. And yes, there's no doubt that the £4k-plus price tag looks mighty high in these hard...

Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX5090 review


If you've got the money, don't think twice -- this TV is as good as it gets and you won't regret buying one for even a second. The only problem is that it'll cost you another fortune in Blu-ray discs and HD TV subscriptions

Picture quality ; Remote control

Expensive ; Power-hungry ; Mastering the inputs is tricky

So if you want one of the best TVs on the market, the LX5090 is for you. We still feel that the Panasonic plasma range offers very impressive performance for less money. So if you're looking for a strong rival, check out the Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ85...

Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX5090 50in Plasma TV


Put simply, we all want one.

Try as I might, nothing I can write in this review can do full justice to the truly extraordinary picture quality of the LX5090. You have to see it to fully believe it. So if I were you I'd start begging, borrowing or saving the necessary cash so that...

Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX6090 review


This TV is nothing short of stunning. DVD and Blu-ray look amazing, games will blow your mind and even Freeview looks passable, which is no mean feat on a screen this large. We're going to ignore the ludicrous price because if you simply must have the...

Picture ; Sound ; Design ; Connectivity ; Remote control


Still, there's nothing this TV does badly. If you're a movie fan with access to HD material, this TV is likely to impress the pants off you. For a competitor, look to the larger Panasonic plasmas or possibly even the bigger LCD panels from Sony and...

The ninth-generation of Pioneer's legendary Kuro range is here. Can it better the already high bar set by its predecessors?

Once again Pioneer has delivered the goods; it's a premium product, with the price tag and most importantly the performance to match
