No LED-backlit LCD will ever best my Pioneer KRP-500M, which was designed with the technology that Pioneer was going to put in the next generation of the consumer Kuro. It is good that Pioneer found...

Thanks for providing the info. Had no doubts in making sure my TV was the best-of-the-best (Pioneer Kuro) but personally D-Box is definitely not worth fitting into my budget at its current price. If...

I saw Pirates 4 in D-Box last night at the only theater with it in NJ. Woah, once I got used to it and reshaped my expectations, it was pretty fantastic! The new Pirates of the Caribbean is the...

Did anybody else notice that the black levels are much lighter when the display first powers on? It gets deeper gradually over a minute or two until it is the almost pure black we're used to. To...

Oh, that's just what I would assume the chips are. I wonder why they are so exposed, they'll collect dust over time.

Did anybody else notice that the three exposed chips on the top left of the KRP-500M (when viewed from the back) have "Panasonic" on them. The video processing chips were made by Panasonic? Was that...

Well, it appears that the blank input isn't pure black (or not always for some reason), which the TV is almost capable of in actual sources. Would that blank input screen being left on for up to...

I was running the break-in DVD from my Xbox 360 for the last few hours. My Xbox had overheated and turned itself off, leaving my KRP-500M with about 80 hours of usage on a blank, all-black input for...

I think Pioneer was able to make the phosphors emit even less light when displaying black tones. Their exclusive technology that let them dim the phosphors so much was how they achieved the black...

Some of the technology that Pioneer was using to produce better black levels in the 10G of their plasmas made it into the PRO-101FD and KRP-500M, most likely as a way to get out everything they had...

The Orbiter available on Pioneer plasmas seems like a good idea on paper to enable for gaming to prevent burn-in. It's a good, almost unnoticeable feature during standard viewing that should help...

The PRO-141FD is the best of Pioneer's excellent 60" lineup, and is Pioneer's "Signature" 60". The KRP-600M uses the same panel and has identical picture, but is missing features such as ISFCCC out...

I've heard that all plasmas buzz, and that exchanges and repairs don't have a great chance of fixing the buzz. Did I really get that unlucky to get a KRP-500M that buzzes louder than it should if I...

If you do want a Pioneer KRP-500M, PRO-101FD, PRO-141FD, or PRO-151FD, they are still available; some at a premium, but they aren't completely gone. Might as well buy the final stock rather than...
