Default Re: Pioneer Looks Toward LCD as Kuro Project Leads to Losses

No different model it is the 768p version. I wouldn't ever consider anything less than 1080p to replace my 1080i set.

Just curious, where exactly did you see the ad regardless of the model#? I couldn't find it.

And just a side note, I've had my Pioneer 60" kuro for 2 months and I swear the picture is getting better with more hours of use.

Last night I was watching John Adams on HDTV over Cox cable. when they ran the credits using only black and white I couldn't believe the clarity of the white letters. there was no degradation at the interstice of the colors, they were perfect.
I am extremely happy with this plasma!

I was speaking to one of the main Pioneer dealers in this city today. He said ...

1. The 9G series of plasmas will be built entirely by Pioneer. They should start appearing in the fall. The Panasonic announcement is for next year's models.
2. Panasonic will be producing plasmas using Pioneer's specifications ... specifications that Pioneer has the rights to.

So, basically nothing changes. Pioneer will still be selling the same high quality plasmas this year and beyond ... argueably the best in the industry.

I hope to be able to pick up a 60" KURO Elite model (what ever supercedes the 150FD) before Christmas ... which will be my first ever non-Sony TV!

If this holds up I'll be very happy because I prefer plasma that is to say only Pioneer plasma.

I believe I read an interview with a senior Pioneer executive in Sound & Vision which basically says the same thing. Pioneer has no intention of leaving plasma, but they are adding LCD as they feel the technology is improving and may eventually be comparable to the plasma HDTV's in price and performance in the 50" to 70" range. They belive (and I concur, for it's worth), the Pioneer plasma's outperform any 50"-70" LCD's in both price and performance). To Pioneer this is where "true Home Theatre" exists at a minimum. They sate that above 70" it makes more sense to go projection.

Just to clarify (as of this writing): Pioneer 10G PDP forward will have the glass panels manufactured by Matsu****a to meet Pioneer's requirements, and those will then be assembled at Pioneer plants.
