Pioneer PDP-5060HD

 

Pleasingly natural picture quality. Good performance with standard or high-definition video sources

Using the HDMI input disables component video input. Slightly soft image quality masks the finest picture details

The Pioneer PDP-5060HD produces beautiful imagery, and it represents the best value the company has ever offered in a 50-inch panel. The TV's A/V input selection is limited, but the panel's picture quality and performance rank among the best I've seen...

Pioneer PDP-4360HD

 

Extremely accurate color; able to reproduce deep blacks; solid feature package; sleek, glossy-black finish; excellent connectivity, including two inputs for HDMI and three for component video.

Blacks still not quite reference quality; minor visible low-level noise in dark material; high-quality inputs share input slots.

Pioneer's PDP-4360HD offers improved black-level performance and excellent overall picture quality, but it costs a bit more than the competition.

Despite my lauding of projectors, it seems like the only question people ask me about TVs is, "What's the best plasma?" I usually respond, as you would imagine, with a detailed description of the strengths and weaknesses of several brands, what that...

Not surprisingly, Pioneer is giving Panasonic a run for their money, holding steady on what they do well (processing) and improving on what they historically haven't (black level). So there, for those who want to know. Between this and the Panasonic...

Pioneer PDP-4360HD Plasma Display System

 

I down-shift to third gear as my car slices through turn two of the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway. Those suspension upgrades I installed just before this race seem to be paying off quite nicely. Ahead of second place, I check my mirror frequently. And then...

"display will not turn on - receiver flashes 'standby.'"

 

Have enjoyed this system while operational. But now an expensive pile of dead electronics.

"Nice picture, media receiver helps out"

 

Over all I am very happy with this TV, i have had it now for 11 months. Good picture quality and a large array of input options. Only complaint is that I wish the TV Guide was a little more responsive, it takes a second or 2 to pull up which is...

Seperate media receiver, picture, tv guide, HDMI

tv guide can be a bit slow

"i love the bezel"

 

I love the pioneer. The black bezel actually makes a difference when compared to another tv with a silver bezel. You can't beat the picture quality of the Pioneer either, but they tend to be more expensive.

Awesome picture, slim black bezel

can be expensive
