I am looking at the 5080 or 5010 for a potential fit for me in my basement room 12.5' x 14.5' ..
I have built a wall with a cavity of 60" (wide) x (33.75" high) x 15.5" (deep).
Upon looking at the TV measurements I think I can swing it, BARELY in the height w/ the stand and all (WHEW)!!
Soooo.. I have been busting my head against the wall for a nice HDTV in the area of $2500-$3000..
So how does these TVs stack up, does it have any flaws that you can tell me off?
I would have like a Pioneer 1080p TV, but the price of the 5010 (I am not sure it is worth it) - thoughts??
Does the 720p (or 768p from what I have heard) on the 5080 handle the BlueRay DVD at 1080p ok ???
The pix I saw last night on the 5080 at BB was nothing short of awsome.
From past looking at the HDTVs..
I have reviewed the Samsung LN-T4671 LCD and it suffers from Mura (clouding) and some flashlighting in the corners and the treaded Triple Ball Effect (TBE) when viewing long passes in football, or Triple Puck Effect (TPE) in hockey..
The 120Hz / AMP just does not cut it ..
So can you please give me the good, the bad, and the UGLY on this 5080 and whether the settling for 720p is a bad thing.
Do you think there is a difference between the 5080 and say the 5010D which I think is 1080p.. I would think so but ..
PS --> Any good place to get a good deal on this that you know of?
I wish this Kuro thread would have individual Pioneer sets, ie. xx80, one for the xx10 etc..
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it..
