Pioneer PDP-LX 5090 H


Extremely deep blacks., Low-judder HDTV video at 60i and 24p., Built-in HD tuner., USB and LAN connections for multimedia

Slight weaknesses in operation., Grey bars instead of black on 4:3 pictures., Limited brightness in daylight

This huge Pioneer plasma might suffer some quirks in its operation and picture presets, but it easily won our affections; we can’t help but be impressed by its top feature-set, excellent video processing, dreamlike picture quality, and maximum contrast...

Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX5090 50in Plasma TV


Put simply, we all want one.

Try as I might, nothing I can write in this review can do full justice to the truly extraordinary picture quality of the LX5090. You have to see it to fully believe it. So if I were you I'd start begging, borrowing or saving the necessary cash so that...

Pioneer PDP-LX5090 review


The ninth generation of Pioneer's Kuro plasma range is its best yet, and we couldn't stop ourselves marvelling at the sensational picture quality

A premium product: Full HD spec ; deep, dark blacks ; brilliant colours ; solid tuner and organised sound

It's expensive

Once again Pioneer has delivered the goods; a premium product, with the price tag and - most importantly - the performance to match

Pioneer PDP-LX5090D review


Pioneer's ninth-generation plasma is one of the best 50in TVs you can buy, with staggering all-round picture quality

One of the best televisions ever made. Neither cheap nor small, but if you can afford it and accommodate it, we envy you

The ninth-generation of Pioneer's legendary Kuro range is here. Can it better the already high bar set by its predecessors?

Pioneer KURO PDP-LX5090 television


When a plasma TV was as widely commended as the last generation KURO, it was always going to be a tough act to follow. Have Pioneer done enough to justify their status at the top? The Pioneer KURO PDP-LX5090 is a television that makes you want more: it...

Great quality, excellent HD performance, even the remote feels superior

EPG a little primitive, no side HDMI, price

The Pioneer KURO PDP-LX5090 is a television that makes you want more: it makes you want to get the best from your home cinema set-up and deservedly so. It distinctly has a purpose, and settling down to watch a movie in front of the screen is a great...

Pioneer PDP-LX5090


Simply the best large flat panel TV available ..

The PDP-LX5090 is considerably more expensive than most of its 50in rivals and this includes some very impressive panels from the likes of Panasonic. However, if you want a truly exceptional all round big screen performance, this latest offering from...

Pioneer PDP-LX5090 Review: Kuro 50" HD 1080p Plasma TV


It probably wouldn't be too far from the truth to say that Pioneer has single-handedly reignited the interests of would-be HDTV buyers in plasma televisions since the introduction of their Kuro line in 2007. Which is no mean feat considering how the...

Deepest black level we've ever measured (0.0031 cd/m2) on a flat panel HDTV ; Enormous dynamic range with full preservation of shadow and highlight detail ; Calibrates extremely well to D65 greyscale and 2.2 gamma ; Stunning colour reproduction thanks...

Subtle uneven blotches/ streaks on screen (mostly invisible during normal viewing) ; Certain connections are shared in a mutually exclusive manner, requiring you to delve deep into the user menu to swap source ; The mind-boggling number of picture...

If you've read through all the reviews on this website, you'll discover that every single HDTV which has been awarded "Highly Recommended"... or better... delivers excellent black level. Inky blacks enhance the realism of dark scenes, bolster image...
