Pioneer PDP-4280HD


On image quality, Pioneer's PDP-4280HD tied for fourth out of twelve HDTVs in our November 2007 issue's roundup, even though it's a 720p model. To our juror's eyes, it produced great images across all of our tests. But its expected street price of...

Better picture than most, Great set of features

Outrageous price, Difficult to set up

When the PDP-4280HD's price comes down--which should happen pretty quickly--this model will become significantly more attractive.

Pioneer PDP-80HD review: Pioneer PDP-80HD


Pioneer PDP-80HD

This 50-inch plasma TV displays an exceedingly deep shade of black with excellent shadow detail; clean image with little noise; "smooth" video-processing mode removes most judder; excellent antireflective screen; sleek, minimalist styling; removable...

Expensive; inaccurate primary color of green; no user-menu fine color temperature controls.

The Pioneer PDP-5080HD produces the deepest shade of black--and thus one of the best pictures--we've ever tested.

Pioneer KURO PDP-4280HD Plasma HDTV Reviewed


This model is the smallest and most cost effective way to add a gorgeous and well received KURO plasma to your home. It has a generous connection panel with four HDMI, two component video and one PC input, picture-in-picture and TV Guide on screen...

KURO models produce the deepest black levels in the flat-panel world, resulting in a beautifully rich, three-dimensional image ; The PDP-4280HD does an equally good job with high-def and standard-def sources ; Because it is a plasma, it doesn't suffer...

This TV does not have a full 1920 x 1080 resolution. Its 768p image is still nicely detailed but not as sharp as you'll see elsewhere ; Even though it's the least expensive KURO model, the PDP-4280HD's asking price is still fairly high for a 768p,...

The PDP-4280HD is the most cost-effective way to add a gorgeous KURO plasma to your home entertainment system, and it boasts a ton of worthy features and connections, to boot.

Pioneer PDP-4280XD


Offers the best combination of standard and high definition performance of any flat panel ..

If you want to pull this Pioneer straight out of the box and have little or no interest in 'tinkering' with its performance then the PDP-4280XD will make an ideal high end choice.

Pioneer PDP4280XD Review - 42" Kuro HD Ready Plasma TV Test


Any company launching a new product should take a lesson in marketing from Pioneer. From unveiling the prototype at CES Las Vegas in January 2007, wining and dining the press at the 8 May official launch in Rome, to sending "sneak preview" demo samples...

Deepest blacks* among all the HDTVs I've reviewed so far (objectively and subjectively) ; Gorgeous colour reproduction with accurate decoding ; Excellent video mode deinterlacing ; Competent film mode deinterlacing (except in 480i/60 and 1080i/60; see...

Slightly indistinct shadow detail due to skewed 0-20% gamma tracking ; Certain settings increase PWM noise (shimmering pixels) ; Sluggish and flaky 3:2 cadence lock over 480i/60 and 1080i/60 ; Plasma buzzing may annoy those with sensitive ears ; The...

I'm not sure if I have exhausted my vocabulary of superlatives in this review, but I'll sum it up in one sentence: the Pioneer PDP4280XDBuy this for £1139.99 at Dixons Use code '5TV' for £60.00 discount is the best flat panel television I've tested to...

Update on "Lost in Shipment"


Staying with Newegg is like staying in a marriage ... there may be a few rough spots but in the end it'll be worth it!

Newegg has come through again for me and my faith has been restored. This is an update to my previous post ; I just talked by telephone to Gabriel who undid all my anger over the shipping snafu ... He indicated there would be a full review of what...

None ... except that Gabriel isn't the CEO .... :^))

Lost in shipment


I suggest you don't buy this product unless Newegg comes up with a more reliable shipper. AIT does not seem to be very well run.

I'm expecting this to be a great TV if I ever receive it. I have already paid for it with my credit 12 days ago but AIT has lost it somewhere enroute. They don't know what happened to it as they have NO record after they picked it up 10 days ago....

I expect Newegg to deal with better shippers than AIT .. at least one who can track his shipment. 12 days and no word is NOT ACCEPTABLE
