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 - Pocket-lint


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

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. It distinctly has a purpose, and settling down to watch a movie in front of the screen is a great...

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 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...

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

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

A premium product: Full HD spec ; deep, dark blacks ; brilliant colours ; solid tuner and organised sound

It's expensive

Pioneer KURO PDP-LX6090


The Pioneer PDP-LX6090 is a superb plasma TV whose advanced functions bring out the very best results from Blu-ray, DVD and standard TV signals. Thanks to an amazingly low black level - Pioneer calls it KURO - this set's contrast ratio is sky-high. The...
