Pioneer PDP-427 XD


Combined tuner for analog TV and DVB-T., The screen is easily calibrated., Fluid HDTV-reproduction in 1080/24p format., Speedy channel changing

The screen does not offer full HD resolution., Gray side bars on 4:3 signals., Clear sound but weak bass., Reflective casing edges

The Pioneer PDP-427 XD won us over with its natural, almost CRT-quality picture, and is highly recommended for home-theater use. Current Blu-ray discs in 24p format are displayed completely judder-free, but it's the set's low resolution (1024 x 768...

Pioneer PDP-607XD review


Pioneer breaks its plasma size barrier to a glorious effect

Fantastic pictures ; No motion flaws

Very expensive ; Non-HD material not handled fantastically well

Overall a beauty that's too pricey despite the quality

Pioneer PDP-507XD review


Pioneer pulls off another masterpiece

Stunning all round performance

Not particularly cheap

Not the cheapest 50in plasma in town, but it's worth every penny for the performance it delivers

Pioneer PDP-427XD review


A high-quality plasma TV that's easy on the eye

Excellent picture quality ; Stylish looks

Price a little on the high side

Another astonishingly good Pioneer plasma, which offers near faultless picture performance and all the features you could wish for

Pioneer PDP-427XDA


Integrated HD Tuner, Wide range of ports, Good High Definition performance

Mediocre Standard Definition performance, Poor PC performance, Price

While the PDP-427XDA performs well in High Definition, the issues with SD and PC signals are a factor especially considering the price point.

Pioneer PDP-607XD review


This humongous Pioneer plasma may seem a touch on the pricey side but, at 60in, you can always lay it flat as use it as a ping-pong table. Now that's convergence…

The PDP-607XD delivers a top quality picture on a monumental scale. There are more sophisticated sets out there but they’re just, well, smaller

Pioneer's lobbed a crucial inch off its signature 43in plasmas on this seventh gen model – but can it still stand out from the crowd?

A fine TV that offers a rich, warm picture but comes up just a tiny bit short against rival sets from Sony and Philips

Pioneer PDP-607XD 60in Plasma TV


Pioneer steps up to 60in, but how does this new monster compare to its well regarded smaller screens?

A round-up of all the breaking news and hands-on previews of the latest tech from IFA 2011 in Berlin.

Pioneer PDP-427XDA


The Pioneer PDP-427XDA scores with a stylish design, a built-in HD tuner and impressive picture quality, particularly if the set's been professionally calibrated.

Classy design ; Striking picture quality ; Built-in HD tuner ; Designed to accommodate professional-grade calibration

Tuning options may overwhelm the timid ; No memory card slots ; High-end of the price scale

The integrated speakers provide a more theatrical sound when switched to its SRS TruBass setting. There is also a FOCUS audio setting that directs dialog from the centre channel. While adequate, the audio performance from its slim speaker array cannot...
