Runco PlasmaWall XP-103DHD Plasma HDTV
The Basics: For the person who has 103 diagonal inches of wall space and a wad of cash burning a hole in a pocket, the 103-inch XP-103DHD is the pinnacle of Runco’s plasma lineup. This is a two-piece system that consists of the 103-inch plasma monitor, which does not contain any TV tuners, and a separate DHD controller that houses the connection panel and video processing. The DHD controller uses Runco’s ViViX II processing to scale all sources to the panel’s 1080p resolution. Features include 16-bit processing and advanced ISF calibration modes that your installer can configure for both daytime and nighttime viewing. The system has five aspect ratio options (16:9, 4:3, Letterbox, Cinema, and VirtualWide), as well as an Input Position menu that allows you to fine-tune the image’s horizontal/vertical position, height, width and overscan (from one to 10 percent; there ...

Panasonic TH-50PZ750U Plasma HDTV
The Basics: The 750U Series is Panasonic’s top-of-the-line 2007 plasma series; as such, it is priced slightly higher than the norm for Panasonic TVs. What distinguishes this higher-end line is the inclusion of two advanced picture modes: the Pro Setting and Studio Reference mode. The Pro Setting grants access to advanced controls to professionally calibrate the TV, while the Studio Reference mode is designed to, as Panasonic puts it, “provide the exact color reproduction of reference monitors used in film editing studios.” The TH-50PZ750U is a 50-inch, 1080p model that has thin side-panel speakers and a glossy black cabinet with chrome accents. Like many new Panasonic models, this TV sports an SD card slot through which you can display photos and view AVCHD video; it’s also compatible with the GalleryPlayer system that lets you display professional photographs and works of art. This ...

Pioneer KURO PDP-5010FD 50-inch Plasma HDTV
Introduction If you follow the HDTV world at all, you’ve probably already heard about Pioneer’s new KURO line of plasma displays. Or maybe you’ve seen those disturbing new KURO ads on TV and wondered what the heck they’re talking about. You’re not alone. The buzz actually began at last year’s CEATEC trade show in Japan, where journalists got a glimpse of Pioneer’s redesigned line of plasmas, capable of rendering an astonishingly deep black. KURO, by the way, means “black” in Japanese. The buzz gained momentum when that same demo hit the states at CES 2007 and reached full stride at Pioneer’s line show back in May, when the company announced eight new KURO plasmas, priced from $2,700 to $7,500. The first models to hit the shelves were 42- and 50-inch 768p displays; not surprising to those of us who had seen ...

Panasonic TH-103PF9UK 103-inch Plasma Display
Introduction To quote Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger, “I want a brand-new house on an episode of Cribs with a bathroom I can play baseball in.” It’s kind of a funny line, but also very true. As shows like MTV’s Cribs have shown us, there seems to be no limit to people’s need for more, especially when it comes their toys. So to you, my financially well-endowed reader, I say this: "I’ve got the toy for you." It is the world’s largest plasma screen, the Panasonic TH-103PF9UK, and at 103 inches diagonal, it will make that 50-inch plasma look about as big as the screen on an iPhone. Is it the best 1080p plasma screen money can buy? We’ll see, but there’s no denying it’s the largest and, as an editor of a publication with an 81-percent male readership, I know size matters. Retailing for $69,995, the TH-103PF9UK is one of the most expensive displays ...

Vizio VM60P 60-inch Plasma HDTV
Introduction Perhaps not since the industrial revolution has rapid technological growth been as commonplace as it is in today’s red-hot flat-panel HDTV marketplace. Less than five years ago, a 42-inch plasma was a $20,000 toy only for the wealthiest. Today, seemingly anyone and everyone with a club is heading down to Costco, Sam’s Club and any number of mass market retailers to buy a big, beautiful, flat HDTV for prices that seem impossibly low. Leading this “video for the people” movement is, without question, Vizio. Vizio as a brand is working on becoming a household name, like Sony, Panasonic or even Kirkland, continuing to release plasma and LCD displays that seem to defy the laws of economics. Take, for instance, their former top dog, the P50, released less than two years ago for what was at the time an amazingly reasonable ...
