The Pioneer you are looking at is going to give you a 70m.m. movie theater quality picture. Its going to last many years and give you trouble free service. and at an a affordable price what are you waiting for? I own an older 72" d.l.p. set with fans, color wheels. and lamps and after a year of excellent service and stunning picture I can care less about new and improved . buy it and love it cant get any better than that steweee
I am in the market for a plasma TV...I have been doing research the past couple months. I had finally decided on the Pioneer 50" plasma, but I was thinking of waiting for prices to come down (around $3,000 on sale). I just read that Pioneer recently announced that they are completely re-engineering the infrastructure of plasma technology and plans to roll out with the new plasma's in the US this summer. They say that it will basically make the technology used in today's plasmas obsolete. Does anyone have a information on this? I would hate to spend $3K now and have a totally new plasma available that blows mine out of the water come out in 4-5 months. I wonder how reliable this technology will be in the first generation plasma and I wonder if the price will be out of my range anyway. I am totally confused on what to do.
