Pioneer releases last Kuro plasma TV's ever
Pioneer has announced its final four Kuro plasma TV's ever today, along with an exit strategy that will include ongoing customer support. The KRP-500A and KRP-600A, 50- and 60-inches respectively both feature 1080p resolution and external tuners, while the same-sized KRP-500M and KRP-600M keep the tuner inside the frame and offer identical features. Pioneer didn't disclose contrast ratios, though I'm sure they're ample, but all four models include deep color support, four HDMI inputs, USB, component, and VGA slots. The final four will ship April 1 with open pricing in Japan, but I'm guessing they won't be available anywhere else.
As part of its previously announced exit strategy, Pioneer will cease TV manufacturing in May and clear out its remaining stock after that. However the company said it will continue to provide customer support and repairs for 8 years and continue to offer replacement parts as long as supplies last.
