Well i disagree there because the same problematic scenes with dithering and banding dont show up on lcd, crt. I agree though the pioneer is probably less annoying with dithering compared to vizo, but i come to the conclusion it's straight up a flaw with plasma technology. The picture the vizo gives is unreal at times and can hang or surpass pioneer anyday of the week, black levels, color accuracy, brightness, clarity. HD is superb. It just cant get better. But yet shows plasma true colors imo with noise,dithering-actual looking rainbows, and the dlp rainbow effect with bright scenes, or dark scenes with white in them.
For anyone that says their sensitive to dlp rainbows and dont see the plasma rainbow effect, not the dithering rainbows, i dont know what to say their but it is extremely similar. The difference is dlp has rainbows with dark scenes, plasma has it with bright scenes, and dark with white in them. B&W movies like sin city are a killer..
I think the effect also is more noticeable with the amount of white your plasma produces. I know watching credits with the vizo it can produce extremely bright white credits compared to other plasmas i've seen.
If plasma was perfect it would have no.
Dithering-banding-actual looking rainbows in the picture
DLP like rainbow effect
Tendancy for whites to look a little pinkish at times.
Less noise which plasma is very revealing and seems to enhance noise.
