Default Re: Pioneer Kuro Plamsa HDTVs

Hi All,

I have to concur with Andrew the Pioneers, especially the Elites with the Color Management System that actually works, are the best plasma panels on the market by a country mile right now. The blacks are the best, at long last besting Panasonic, and the accuracy of the primary and secondary colors, while not perfect is certainly superior to anything on the market.

Idiot, he's supposed to be selling these??
I know Tweeter is supposed to be a few steps up from BB, Circuit City, etc. but this is the typical sales person in the marketplace unfortunately today.

I like the fact that a Kuro ad serves on this page.

We have the review back and will run it on 12/1/07 on AVRev.com

Only the LCD's are using 120Hz. No 'k'. It's my understanding the LCD's need to do this to make motion appear smooth, plasma works differently and doesn't seem to share this issue.

I stopped by a local HT dealer and Pioneer staff folks we there demoing the new Kuro flat panels. I wish more dealers would do this, because you get straigh answers. Plus, they gave me a Kuro t-shirt.

Anyway, these are the best displays I have seen. The Pioneer guys said that this display uses new technology to produce better blacks, which intern improves overall color and detail. Here is the description that they gave me on the new technology. What they said is that plasma "pixel" is excited by a charge to produce colors. The problem is that the plasma "pixels" still stay in an excited state even when they are "off" for blacks, emitting some light. That is why blacks never really get black.

What they told me is that the Kuro displays use a new technology that reduces the amount of charge when the "pixel" is off by 80%, hence reducing the amount of light output of a "pixel" that is off by 80%.

They had several of their old plasmas and other brands of plasma right next to it. The differences were not subtle. The Kuros looked fabulous.
