Pioneer PDP-LX-508D


Nighttime scenes are rendered in pitch-blackness - an almost perfect black., Incredible color neutrality without a lot of tweaking., Judder-free and full resolution HDTV playback

Somewhat feeble presentation of bright scenes: limited brightness in daylight viewing., If the content cannot be displayed in widescreen, gray bars to the left and right of the picture distract from the main picture

Pioneer PDP-LX608D review


Finally Pioneer's big-screen Full HD Kuro is here

HD picture quality ; Excellent connectivity ; Outstanding 1080/24p compatibility

Picture not the brightest ; Price may put some buyers off

It doesn't come cheap, but the LX608D is so good in so many ways that we have no choice but to give it a whole-hearted five stars

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...

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...

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.
