Panasonic 42 inch plasma FD 1080p with Kuro technology?

by chesschess / March 14, 2008 10:08 PM PDT

With the recent announcements by Pioneer - and the claim that Pioneer will be giving the 'Kuro' technology to Panasonic as part of a deal-
should we expect a 42inch Panasonic plasma 1080p with kuro technology?
If so, does anyone have a guess when this might be available?

Pioneer is going to buy Panasonic (Matsushita) plasma panels and still develop and integrate their Kuro technology. Pioneer will still differentiate themselves using their own glass filter technology, video processing, encased cells, etc. So the answer is the Panasonic will be the same panel but still be quite different than the Pioneer Kuro.

Will Pioneer later add 1080p to its 42inch plasma?

Greetings Jasondtx,
Thx for your reply.
I thought that when Pioneer announced that they are removing themselves from the 42" plasma market, they meant "completely - ie. no more 42" plasmas". But really it means they will not build 42" plasma panels.
Therefore, Pioneer 42" plasmas with Kuro will continue with a Panasonic panel.

In the future, do you think it possible that Pioneer will add 1080p to its 42inch plasma? Psycologically, it would probably be a good marketing move.

Thank you for your advice. Regards,

I imagine they will add a 42" 1080P model soon. That's one reason for the move is to add more sizes to their lineup. Can't wait to see what they come out with!

Greetings Jason,

Are you suggesting that Pioneer are looking at an in between 42 and 50 inch plasma?

I'd love to see a Pioneer 46inch Kuro Plasma 1080p. This would fit perfectly into my lounge. The 50inch is aesthetically a little too large a unit.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
