Shopping For TV - Considering Kuro, But Which One?

I am shopping for a new TV but I like to find good deals and there don't seem to be any right now. The problem is my current TV is about to konk out soon so I need to find something soon.

I have heard nothing but great things about Kuro so I have been considering seeing for myself and buying from a private seller. I have also heard that they retain their value well in the worst case that I want to sell it.

The question is, which model? There is a 50" 111FD for $1500, a 50" 5080HD also for $1500, and a 60" 6020FD for $1200. Initially the 60" seemed like the obvious choice, but looking at reviews it doesn't seem as highly regarded as the other 2 models I mentioned.

Are these good deals? Any advice would be appreciated.

Sounds high. My local craigslist show 50" 5080HD for $750 and a 60" 6010FD for $1000. Kuros are pretty old now.

There's a 50" Elite Kuro Pro-111FD on Craigslist close to me going for $900 OBO. It looks in good shape, and I'm almost curious enough to check it out. It's either that or grab one of the 51" Sammy F5300s for about $600 before they go out of stock.

you guys are lucky. there's only one 'kuro' (no model, or much of any description really) listed near me(and that's 1 more than the last 5 times I've checked) at the bargain price of $8000...

Personally I would find a late Panny model -- it will have less hours on it, and the black level is darn close to the Kuro, even beating it on the VT60 and ZT60 models.

I was under the impression that the ZT/VT60 basically matched the black level of the 9G kuro but didn't reach the levels of the 101fd and 500M?

I think it matched the 'stock' MLL of the best kuro, but couldn't beat the 'dnice tweaked' MLL of the last gen.


it's pretty darn close either way though.

IIRC some calibrators thought it did, others thought it tied.

Splitting hairs at this point. :-)

Nope. VT/ZT are .001FtL as are the non signature/500M 9th generation kuro models. Sig monitors and 500M are .0005 from the factory (POSSIBLY even some of the 600Ms from what I remember of an audiocast D-Nice was a part of at one of the previous VE shoot-outs)

I own a 5020FD with D-Nice's black level adjustment applied and it's at .0004FtL. Basically, to answer the OP's question, NOT the 5080FD

It's an 8th gen model (and so has black levels more in the range of .004FtL) and although it DOES have more picture controls than the 6020FD, you're giving up size and contrast, surely

So it's between the 111FD (50'' model) and 6020 (60'' model) obviously. Both can be calibrated but the improvement will be much more noticeable on the 111FD. It's a tough call honestly, made harder by the fact that you can get the 6020 for $300 less. Check the condition/hours on both?...that could aid a little in the decision

*Note
You can 'make' the 6020FD an elite like the 111fd if you can find an elite board (one member here a while back was selling them for ~$150) and do the swap. That'll get you all the picture controls including ISF day/night modes.

It certainly didn't match the stock FD's and KRP'S. It may have got close to the other 9G Kuro's. D-Nice basically said so himself on an F8500 thread a couple of minutes months ago and he was talking about all the last gen Panasonics he measured.

The stock FDs? They are non-sig FDs too..which had normal 9g black levels just like the 111 and 151FD...just didn't want to mislead anybody.

Also, the BEST ZT/VTs have been right around .001 from all the reports I've seen, whereas, in general, a lot of even the non-sig/500 monitors were right around .001 so from that perspective, panasonic didn't *quite match the regular 9gs, you're right (just wanted to be fair to all)

That being said, d-nice measured my 5020fd at .0012 before black level adjustment..so take that for what it's worth (my unit also has a solid 13k+ hours on it-and I KNOW they're not supposed to be any black level elevation on any Kuro..I think it was my mind subconsciously trying to deny I'd been watching blacks that were elevated, if ever so slightly, above the mystical .001 threshold all those years)

D-Nice's quote for that post you referenced, I believe:

From what I've seen, ZT/VT60s don't measure below 0.001fL per a properly black calibrated Klein K-10 and CS-2000. More like 0.0011fL and higher. Display 's with black levels below 0.004fL and good AR filters do not have overly noticeable black levels except in a dark room environment and low APL scenes. Those two criteria will clearly show the benefits of blacker blacks though. 5 of the 6 Kuros I own are noticeably blacker than any and all VT/ZT60 I've calibrated iwhen dealing with APL scenes and dark room lighting since they all measure below 0.0003fL.

Makes me happy because my 5020FD reachs that new benchmark (.0004) It'd have been nice to go even lower but I didn't want to be greedy and like D-Nice has said to me and others, some kuros just aren't as capable of going as black as others (I believe the blackest of his is still the 500M or 50'' sig monitor, if he owns the latter)

Also, he told me during his calibration that HIS 5020FD couldn't get that low..that being an ambiguous term at the time but I now believe he was referencing the .0003 level. If so, that makes me feel even better that his own non elite 9g isn't any blacker than mine

No worries Viper.

I didn't have the average numbers of the non elites etc and could have worded it more carefully initially so my apologies there.

I never liked the term regular Kuro's anyway - absurd to me as all Kuro's of both generations are the dogs you know whats, at the end of the day

But what D-Nice said in his post made sense to me. Because there are people I've spoken to who still thought their Kuro's (KRP's (AND) LX's in Europe) looked darker in a blackout room than their new VT or ZT regardless of how slight.

Although their Kuro in (their non measured opinion) (wasn't as dark as the day they got it home by this time), unpacked and switched on for the first time back in the day in 08 and 09. Obvious (only) of course in a blackout room - because of the excellent various filters on all KURO's.

Anyway I've witnessed my last KRP previous to this one, have a rise in MLL right around the same time as the red tint started on it so apart from the red tinted ones there will be others that rise just with black alone undoubtedly.

It's the law of technological averages over hundreds of thousands or whatever that some will behave differently than others across a whole range and different sizes - same with any model or previous plasma manufacturer

If you're in the Northeast I have a 5020FD in the For Sale section I'm open to negotiations on, it was lovingly cared for.

Can someone kindly instruct me on how to access the HOURS record on a 5020? And what other tests would you suggest running on a 5020 before I buy it? Thanks in advance.

What I'm really asking about is info easily accessible using the remote, not a separate external program. Again, TIA.

Hi,

Unfortunately not for hours etc.

Service remote, or learning remote with Pioneer factory mode hex code only for the handset route...

It is going to be really tough to find one without high mileage. Personally I'd go for a new set with a full warranty, and no mileage, and one that's relatively future proof like a 4k set with the right codec's.

a 4k set isn't future proof if it's already got worse picture quality...


I agree, there's an advantage to buying new, as long as it's close to as good(ie grabbing a vt60, or even f8500), but I wouldn't trade picture quality for 3d or smart features or UHD(that isn't even available yet)

OK then what's a good price for a decent 5020 ? If it is operating, and looking good, aren't the parts worth something at this point?

Seriously, can you guys tell the difference between .001 and .0012 especially when it's not side by side? It sounds like it's more about bragging rights than actual difference.

perhaps not. But I could definitely tell the difference between .0012 and .0004. Huge difference in terms of low APL scenes. Plus, my black bars are basically non-existent in 95% of all scenes

Of course there's diminishing returns but I'm sure the LG OLED owners that previously owned a kuro will tell you they can tell a difference (and that's NOT buyers remorse, seeing as how some got it for the absolute steal of $1999 at microcenter-the one near me had it for this price but I couldn't justify the upgrade-read, couldnt afford it)

Thank you all for the responses. I picked up a 5020, complete (w/remote and stand) with no visible issues on screen or bezel, all seems to work. Early model, prod date May 08, and serial number in the 900s. I wouldn't say it was LOVINGLY cared for, but it certainly seems serviceable with a few tweaks. All for the mere sum of $400 I just have to borrow a vehicle to get it home. I do have a PRISTINE, LOVINGLY CARED for, PRO-111FD that I purchased new, which is stored away in its original box in temp controlled storage due to a quick, extended move. Obviously I've had KURO separation anxiety disorder (K-SAD), so this should tide me over. I'm not quite a newbie, but I've not read all 30,000+ pages since my join date. I'm sure once I get it home I will have some questions, but I don't want to hijack this thread any longer, I'll start my own thread. I would like to find a good (preferably inexpensive) power conditioner, and/or source, if anyone has any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated. My mid range to higher one is again packed away in storage. Again, TIA.

Here is a fairly cheap power conditioner from Monoprice. I use it with my Samsung F8500.

LOL I was out of town for the weekend and just got back an hour ago. I checked this thread and saw all of the responses. I feel honored that a thread generated this much activity and helped somebody else out (congrats sleepyhollowtoo).

Thanks for the responses everbody, based on the advice here I decided not to purchase the sets that I saw for sale. I will have to keep looking. Thanks for the offer dianebrat, but I am not in that area.

Ugh. This is terrible. I was looking in Kuro Pictures thread and, man... that thread is filled with temptations. I must resist the urge to go get me a Kuro for my basement.

Hey, welcome back asdfgh. Sorry we got a little off topic, but hope you had a good weekend.

So, just a little post script before this thread falls off... I was doing my due diligence, trying to get caught up to date on the 5020, started with post #1 in the non-Elite 9G owners thread, and got as far as posts in the middle of the night, the night D-Nice was expected to release his much awaited testing observations and settings for the xx20s. I got about 40 pages in, 1000, posts out of 15000+ and left it up to continue the journey today.

(SIDE NOTE) Reading through the thread from the very beginning brought back the sweaty palms and heart palpitations of anticipation as the first xx20s were ordered, some arrived broken, and owners marveled at what they saw. It's like reading a novel or mystery for the first or second time. Except, I know how the story ends now for Pio, Panny, and Sammy.

Back to my story, thread is up on screen, I leave for a while. We have a brief POWER outage. No storm, no warning, just a 40 min. outage. Now I have the joy of skimming threads again from12:01AM on I hope it was 6/12/08looking for where I left off. WHAT are the chances?
