Hey, I'm just watching from the sidelines & have to be impressed with reviewers comments about astounding blacks with Kuro. On the other hand I'd pay attention to what an experienced pro has to say when thay have experienced both. Then it's a matter of assessing their motives of whay they perfer to do business with one rather than the other.
I'm interested to know how the posting goes about two such fine products.
I'm looking for my first plasma in a 50 inch screen and narrowed it to these 2 models. I realize the PRO FHD1 is a 1080P monitor and has no speakers. I plan on getting a surround system anyway. A local sound store has the PRO FHD1 for $2,800.00 and the KURO PDP 5080 for $2,400.00. I plan on viewing from about 9 or 10 feet away and require a TV stand. Which is the better option? Are there any advancements/options in the KURO PDP 5080 that would put it ahead of the higher resolution/older model PRO FHD1? My local store can get both but recommends the older PRO FHD1. Any advice would be appreciated.
