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...

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.

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

High price tag

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 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...

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

Pioneer PDP-428XDA

 

Pioneer has completely re-engineered the PDP-428XDA plasma to produce a high performance TV -- prepare to be blown away by the deep blacks, rich colours and natural looking picture.

Picture quality and black levels ; Styling and build quality ; Menu system ; Sound ; Connectivity

Picture can look a little soft with certain settings engaged ; Price

Available online for around AU$5,000, you may be able to find cheaper screens which boast 1080p. However, no screen can offer anywhere near the black level of this TV, though improvements in LCD backlighting could improve the situation in the...
