For all i've read and also from y experience this plasma is one of those to fall in love forever...awsome picture!!
I've seen the Panasonic top model side by side with this one and believe or not the Pioneer beats it with no doubt.

This is just my opinion, and with this i am not saying that Panasonic is worst, it depends on the taste.

I just think Pioneer has a picture more accurate, vibrant and natural the same time.
And "Blacks" my God they are like CRT.

I've had a Pioneer KRP-500A, here in Singapore(the guy at shop told me that I got one of the last 2 available), for almost exactly 3 years now.B4 that I was using a Sony 40in LCD and the Pioneer (the model prior to the KRP-500A) was going for a dollar short of S$15,000 then.Though I could afford it the price put me off.I thought to myself that it couldn't possibly be 3 times as good as the SONY.
Boy was I wrong, the Sony while good in bright scenes and the like, it was terrible with dark scenes.
Sadly, recently I realized that I had burnt in the borders by watching too many 2.35:1 movies.Never 'broke in the tv' as suggested for the 1st 200hrs.I only used the tv to watch movies(blu ray and hd dvd)Price I have to pay for being inexperienced? S$2200 , for a replacement panel coming from Japan in a month's time.Again ,lucky to get the spare as Pioneer, I'm sure you all know, has stopped making TVs
My advise to all those who own a Pioneer, hold onto it, cherish it.The best thus far.

Great news you are getting a replacement panel.

And by the way... Well said. And in the real world will remain the best, as long as plasma is here.
