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'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
