Try looking at the opening sequence of "Star Trek: Insurrection, 480i of course, with the 72Hz on on the Pioneer and watch the Buildings shake like a California Earth Quake.
As for the Pioneers and their differences wrong again. The PDPs color decoding is terrible and pushes red like crazy. TThe Elite's decoding is dead on accurate. And on the PDPs the primary and secondary colors are not even close to the Pioneer Elite's accuracy in Pure mode. This of course is done on purpose to differentiate their product lines.
Finally, if you want the best performance from anything you should have it Professionally Calibrated by an expert with good credentials and top notch test gear.
That is very interesting Kevin. I just helped my friend this Saturday, who just started his own Home Theater Installation business a few months ago, install a PDP-6010FD Kuro Plasma at his Pastor`s house. We definitely did not have time to have him calibrate the tv. That will be done tomorrow. He is ISF certified back in the mid 80`s by Joe Kane.
However, when we put the HQV HD DVD calibration disc in, just to play something, I was impressed with the picture quality right out the box. I`ll let you know, how it goes after we go back tomorrow to finish up.
