There's a guy in the $20,000 and up toy directory that claims he has the new Pioneer Pro fhd1 true hi-def plasma, if true this is the first I've heard of anyone having one. Check it out.

There is a couple of us in Europe that have received one (it is called the PDP-5000EX in Europe). If you are interested, you may want to search the threads here in this forum or in the European forum called AVFORUMS.COM.

Cheers,

JJ

ps: I posted yesterday a 10-days usage report :D

6th Ave Electronics has the Elite PROFHD1 on the cover of its Sunday flyer in the Star Ledger. MRSP is $9,999. The bezel is black but doesn't look like high-gloss piano black (that's good IMO) and it has a thin band of silver or light gray around the outside edge :eek: .

pirgous11,
He didn't say the TV was $20k, just that someone in the $20k forum had one. Of course, at 2:41 in the morning you can be forgiven for not being totally awake. :)

You have to hand it to Venus de Milo..., otherwise she would starve.

Computers have abundant memory, but no imagination.

By starting this thread late last night when I was totally bored to death I was hoping for someone to chime in that they had one or have seen one in a store. I hear this is the future of plasma TV's and I would love to hear just how good this expensive plasma looks. Dayton Ohio normally doesn't get the leading edge of technoligy before other places.

I saw the Pioneer FHD1 at Ken Cranes in Fountain Valley, CA on Saturday 7/8. Picture quality was stunning. They were switching from showing Phantom of the Opera (HDDVD) and Ultraviolet (Bluray). POTO looked amazing on it. Colors were exceptionally vibrant with a very 3D look. I have never seen a Plasma look this good. Of course the source material helped a lot.
