Let me give you an answer that is not filled with how plasma markets have dried up and you should just buy an OLED. Both will have the same blacks levels. The 151FD can be calibrated properly by using a program called ControlCal to access the ISF modes(there are other programs that work too). You'll be able to adjust white point high and low, primary and secondary colors etc. The 6020 you can't unless you put a 151 board in it. This process is complicated and if you are not able to calibrate yourself then the 6020 would be fine. If your a home calibrator then the 151 is a must. The next factor is knowing how many hours are on it. These Pioneers can literally go for ever. The TV being 9 years old, under 20k would be good. Next issue would be red tint. Turn the lights off and put up a black screen. Do the blacks have a red tint to them? If everything looks good I would put a price on the 151 at $550 and the 6020 at $450. The seller may not want to part with it for that and if you want a Kuro you may have to pay more. They don't come up that often.

Now for personal experience:
I bought a KRP-600M for $550. It had 19400 hrs on it and the blacks while not really red where glowing a bit. I've lowered voltages, calibrated with Controlcal and unlocked ISF modes. My KRP-600m is probably my favorite TV and I have a 65VT60 and LG65B6 OLED. Of cource the OLED is my best display and I enjoy it a lot but for just kicking on same basic HD satellite or a blu-ray I am so glad I have a classic Kuro.
