Pioneer Plasma PDP-LX 608G

 

When it comes to flat panels, we at Tech2 try and mop up every brand in the market for a review, sooner or later. In the case of Pioneer TVs, we've been following their trail, and unfortunately there has been no real footprint in India, until now....

The price is a whopping Rs. 4,49,000. The thing is , that this TV will kill other lesser priced ones, and all the issues I've mentioned in the performance section are strictly adhering to rigid test patterns, just because it costs so much. The verdict...

Pioneer PDP-428XD review

 

Flying the flag proudly for plasma

Superb pictures and black levels ; Generous connections ; Excellent sound

Expensive

The smallest of Pioneer's new 'Kuro' plasma screens is every bit as world-beating as its bigger brother

Flawless image quality across all modes, excellent speakers, integrated HDTV tuner, attractive design

High price tag

The Pioneer KURO PDP-508XDA is easily the best plasma television we have reviewed thus far. Even though it is a little more expensive than other 50in plasmas on the market, it is money well spent.

Pioneer PDP-428XD review

 

Pioneer's extraordinary new Kuro range of plasmas is nothing short of a revolution in TV picture quality and this 42in model is one of its finest sons

The best 42in TV you can buy, full stop. Not cheap, but the quality is all up there on the screen

Pioneer PDP-508XD review

 

Pioneer's ‘mid-price' 50in plasma is more expensive than many same-sized rivals – but far better, too

Not the best 50in Pioneer, but still better than every other 50in on the planet. If you can’t manage the top-end Pioneer, this is the set to go for

Pioneer KURO PDP-428XD 42in Plasma TV

 

Pioneer continues to show that its Kuro plasma screens are the new black.

The very worst thing that can be said about the 428XD is that its overall impact isn't quite as great as that of the 508XD. But we only say this because picture quality this good just looks better the bigger the screen you see it on; there's nothing...

Pioneer PDP-508XDA Review - Plasma TVs

 

pioneer pdp-508xda review: The Pioneer PDP-508XDA is without a doubt one of the best televisions ever released, with excellent black levels and oodles of detail.

Prodigious black levels, Eye-popping pictures, Up-to-date features

Some minor flyscreen effects, Tuner images a little soft, You have to pay for one -- they don't give them out for free

If anyone still pines for the "superior pictures" of tube television after seeing one of these babies, then something is very wrong.
