Pioneer PDP-5020FD Plasma Gets Reviewed: Excellent Picture, But Still Some Shortcomings
CNET as put another Kuro plasma to the test. This time it's the 50-inch Kuro PDP-5020FD and not surprisingly it impressed...in some ways. The Elite Kuro PRO-111FD had the deepest blacks HD Guru Gary Merson had ever seen, but CNET says the same for the PDP-5020FD. While this is a definite pro along with an excellent antireflective screen, accurate color decoding, network connectivity and plenty of HDMI inputs, there are a few problems. The primary colors are inaccurate, especially the reds and greens, and if you like to tweak the picture there isn't much in the way of advanced picture controls. Oh, and one more thing. The PDP-5020FD is expensive, running you just under $3000 from Amazon. In the end, despite the fact the PDP-5020FD has its shortcomings it still stands among the top in terms of plasma picture quality.
