In all fairness kuros were released circa 2008

Iíve pulled em apart - well engineered and all 3 of mine still work

BUT one of the problems is the 9th generAtion kuros has a tendency to develop red tinted blacks - but that can be fixed via 10 mins in service menu

Canít wait to see the Panasonic Gz2000in person

Kuros are available everywhere 2nd hand at a cheap price -sometimes I see them with less than 20,000 hours on the clock. For someone on a budget theyíre not a bad option at the right price

The last Pioneer plasmas were the 2008 Pioneer Elite Signature series PRO-141FD and PRO-101FD that went out of production in April of 2009. That makes the Pioneer plasmas only 11 years old and not 20 years old for the latest model.

Most people replace their plasma with a OLED or projector.

There was a Panny 60" VT30 on my local classifieds last month for $550 that I should have jumped on. The kind of LED you could buy brand new with warranty today for $550 is utterly horrendous. I haven't seen any $4000-5000 LED's that I prefer to my plasma, so I can only imagine the horror of a $550 LED trying to impress me, lol!
Just picked up an Panny 65 inch VT30 over the weekend for $180! Only thing missing was the stand. Boy that thing was heavy! 130lbs without the stand. I couldn't pass it up. We watched a movie on it Saturday night and football yesterday and it was great!
