I just fired up my Kuro 151 after it sat idle in a corner for the past 8 months since I got my A9G. Both calibrated by Jeff Meier. I gotta say, there is something about that Kuro picture. While the Sony does have more pop, better blacks (but I’m never wanting for deeper blacks on the Kuro) and slightly richer colors, the Kuro looks better on B&W movies. With 1080p material overall, they both have their strengths and weaknesses. I just can’t get myself to sell the Kuro though. It’s picture looks every bit a good as it did from day one.Biggest mistake I made was selling my 151 in 2009 - wrongfully assuming Panasonic, who had bought the patents, would overthrow the Kuro within a year.
And yet, here we are, over a decade later, still comparing brand new TVs to Kuros. I find the comparisons fascinating and even more fascinated that those old plasmas still have some superior qualities over OLED.
Truth be told, we’ll probably never see a TV that maintains its relevance for so long ever again.
