D-Nice ... is there a good chance we can start seeing the 5020s in local B&M stores (best buy, magnolia, etc) by early June?

Also, any idea if Pioneer has made any internal design changes to the 9Gs to address the buzzing noise (reported by folks in the buzzing thread)
post #8 of 7982
I'm so excited.

How soon before you get your hands on a 9g and put up some settings?

BB should have then by week 3 of June.

Buzzing??? What Buzz New power supplies in the 9Gs.

Alas, that Pro 141FD does not appear to have a thinner bezel...it seems it is only thinner in terms of depth, not width.

D-Nice,
Can you post black level specs and brightness specs?

What is this "Seamless Orbiter"?

Does that mean no black bar on the sides of the image when it's being shifted?
No more smearing in Dot by Dot when using 1080 line patterns, as some have reported?
post #16 of 7982
hey D-nice, great stuff, might want to fix the availability on the pricing matrix you got there....according to the press releases the elites are coming June. Finally an official thread.

Not until I get my hands on one. Pioneer does not "officially" have those numbers. I cannot post the "unofficial" ones beyond what I have previously posted.

Maximum peak brightness will still be lower compared to....say Panasonic.
post #18 of 7982
God, they are so close yet so far...

Pioneer is just cruel for taunting us the way they are... by the way anyone know the canadian MRSP?
post #19 of 7982
D-Nice,

Thanks for the official thread.

Everyone:
I need some guidance on my second TV purchase. I posted a while ago in one of the predecessor threads about a two-TV setup in my new house. The media room will have an elite 60" -151. My dilemma involves the family room, which is suited for a 50".

Should I:

A) grab one of the close out 8G elite -1150s (my seating distance is ~13')
B) go for one of the remaining 8G 5010s
C) wait for the 9G 5020

Springing for BOTH a -111 and 151 is simply not in the financial cards.

Any suggestions?

i wonder what the contrast ratio will be. its gotta be better than panasonics so called 1,000,000 to 1.
post #21 of 7982
Are the dimensions known yet (bezel to bezel width, pedestal depth)? Same as last year?
post #22 of 7982
Look out ****** little Toshiba 27" CRT, the day has finally come for you to take up residence in my parent's room as their "oh crap I'm falling asleep so I'll 'watch' some TV"...TV.

The wait has been excruciating, but well worth it. I feel as if I may ruin my life for the first few months I have this thing.

As for brightness, so long it can output reference whites, thats fine by me...

Most likely the same as last year, or very close.

The maximum native (on/off) contrast ratio is 100,000:1. Post calibration, with a peak brightness level set @ 40fL, the contrast ratio will be between 40,000:1 and 50,000:1.

There is nothing out there that comes close besides the Kuro projector (JVC clone).
