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...

Pioneer PDP-428XD review

 

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 PDP-428XD review

 

Flying the flag proudly for plasma

Superb pictures and black levels ; Generous connections ; Excellent sound

Expensive

The smallest of Pioneer's new 'Kuro' plasma screens is every bit as world-beating as its bigger brother

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...

Pioneer PDP-428XD

 

When we looked at Pioneer's 50in PDP-508XD plasma recently, we didn't just find it good: we found it positively revolutionary. So our expectations for the 42in version of the TV are understandably sky high

Superb pictures and black levels, Generous connections, Excellent sound

Expensive

The smallest of Pioneer's new 'Kuro' plasma screens is every bit as world-beating as its bigger brother

Pioneer PDP-428XD

 

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

The Pioneer PDP-428XD has given us all at HDTVorg the feeling that the days of CRT outperforming plasma with SD sources are numbered. The PDP-428XD is not quite there yet, but the difference is negligible, and with HD sources the PDP-428XD in our...
