Alas, poor KURO, we hardly knew ya. I’ll miss your super-thin style and breathtaking blacks. I will NOT miss your completely whacked ad campaign (I still can’t put my contacts in). I guess it’s no real surprise though - first they axed the 42-incher, then the rumors started, and now the last shoe drops with Pioneer announcing an end to plasmas altogether.
There is a sliver lining, however - a slew of great deals like today’s from TriState Camera. Hard to cry when you’re getting 30% off.
As for the TV specs, the PDP6010FD’s got just about everything you could want. 60 inches and 2 million pixels, ASIC video processing and scaling, an Optimum Video Mode featuring an optical light sensor for automated adjustment of picture in both varying light conditions and by program content, and the new Smooth Film mode that eliminates motion judder in 3:2 Pulldown. It sports 4 HDMIs (1.3) w/ HDMI-CEC control, a USB input, a PC input, and a subwoofer out and detachable bottom speaker if you’re going that way. The set also has ATSC and Dual NTSC Tuners and a CableCard slot (does anyone really use these?).
Obviously, $4k is a pile to spend on a TV, even one as good as this, but if you’re gonna, I can’t imagine a better set. Don’t believe me? Go check one out while you can.
