Pioneer KURO PDP-LX508D 50in Plasma TV

 

If money's no object and you simply have to have the best 50in TV in town, then check out this impressive plasma screen.

There's no getting round the fact that the PDP-LX508D is seriously expensive by today's 50in TV standards. The single biggest issue I have with the screen is the fact that, awesome though it is, I'm not sure many people will easily be able to justify...

Although the PDP-LX608D lacks the immediate impact of Pioneer's smaller plasmas due to a slight drop in brightness, the longer you live with it, the more you grow to love its stunning black levels, ultra-rich colours, dreamy motion handling and...

Excellent picture quality ; Connections galore ; Unusually helpful Blu-ray/HD DVD support

The picture's not especially bright ; One word you certainly can't associate with it is 'cheap

The only other 'problem' with the LX608D is simply its cost -- £4,900 is clearly beyond the reach of most of us

The combined technological prowess of the globe couldn’t make a better television than this. Buy it, polish it and pamper it, but desecrate it with an episode of Holby City and we’ll be around with baseball bats. Pioneer PDP-LX508D Kuro is tagged with...

Along with the 50in model, the best TV money can buy ..

Pioneer have created a gargantuan screen at a gargantuan price with gargantuan performance. This is the best 60in screen money can buy, and one of the best TV's of any size, at a price ...

Pioneer PDP-LX508D Review: 50" Kuro True HD 1080p Plasma

 

If you've been following the reviews published on this website, you should realise by now how highly I regard Pioneer Kuro plasma televisions based on both objective measurements and subjective viewing (post-calibration of course). In fact, the only...

Almost all elements of picture quality including blacks, contrast ratio ; colour, video processing, motion handling, etc

Plasma buzzing (may be specific to our sample) ; Price

Put simply, no other flat screen television – plasma or LCD – I have seen in 2007 delivered as good a picture quality as Pioneer PDP-LX508D.
