[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi, I'm David Katzmaier, senior editor from CNET.com and sitting next to me is the pioneer PROFHD1. This is a 50 inch flat panel plasma TV. It's actually Pioneers highest end, top of the line plasma, and the reason for that is because that it is actually the first plasma on the market at 50 inches that has 1080P resolution. The set itself is a monitor which means it doesn't have speakers built in and there is no tuner built in, so you have to supply those yourself of course. A TV this high end usually people have an external sound system and usually they're connecting it to a cable with satellite box so it's not really an issue. The styling itself is really slick. Around the edge here, you can see there is a little bit of kind of see through black around the edge and the rest is glossy and it's really a kind of simplistic look. Although the border is a little bit thicker than a lot of plasmas, we've seen. Of course, this stand here is a nice thick metal stand and it all kind of matches. Around back as befits an industrial model, there's a couple differences with the inputs. The component video inputs have BNC type connecters so you're going to need to buy little adapters for that and on the back panel there is also a pair a HDMI inputs, and a DVI input so you can connect a computer digitally. Inside the menu system, we found plenty of controls for the picture. We also really appreciated the fact that you can adjust the color temperature and the primary color accuracy on this set. The color is really the best thing about this TV. It's really the most accurate color we have seen in a long time. The reds, greens, blues, they just pop. They're really are right just at the HD TV standard. Of course, the black levels are also excellent on this TV and we found over all that its one of the nicest TVs in terms for keeping noise out of the picture and also making it nice smooth transitions between dark and light. But when we put it next to other 50 inch plasmas with lower resolution, the difference wasn't really all that apparent. Again, the real benefit of this TV is in its accurate color and other picture aspects. Anyway, that's a quick look at Pioneer PROFHD1 and I'm David Katzmaier. ^M00:02:00 [ Music ]
