Pioneer Electronics Inc. will begin shipping the world's first 50" 1080p plasma display today. The new Pioneer Elite PureVision PRO-FHD1 is a technological milestone with images that burst off the display for a near 3-D effect.
I hope the thing falls over and kills your cat.
But its 10,000 bucks...woot! 1080p for 10,000 bucks they can keep it...maybe 6 years from now it'll be around the 2000-3000 dollars range then ill consider
That's crazy how much it costs. The new "budget line" Sony XDR's that will handle native 1080p will be less than $3k. I'm guessing it's because it's a plasma screen, but still. $10k is ridiculous. I guarantee that the new Sony XDR's will still smoke this in colors, black levels, and contrast ratio.
Yes, the above posters are right, this is for the person that has way too much money.
hey can you give me please the fullname of the sony xdr ? i cant find this in the internet.
im getting one for sure because im a rich snobby multi-millionaire. im sooo rich, my toilet paper roll is made out of dollars bills.
Movie buffs should definately listen to Major Nelsons podcast im like goin nuts really exciting stuff
I know this is totally off topic but a really good listen
that's almost as bad as a ps3 for $600!!!
because plasma tvs use gas, u will need to replace the gas is the tv every 2-3 years and it would cost u 80% of the tvs price to replacce it...buy LCD it uses liquid so therefore it would take longer to replace around 10-15 years!!! so i would be getting an HD LCD Tv for £400 check amazon.co.uk if u dont believe me.
You can't replace the plasma in these TV's you tard and they have 60,000 hours life, that's like 15 years at 10 hours a day, so stop talking like you know something
CAPS LOCK.. You obviously don't have a Plasma
The depth of picture, particularly when viewing original content in 1080p/24Hz, such as a movie on BLU-RAY Disc, gives a truly 3-D effect. Viewers can see tiny beads of sweat on an athlete’s face as well as the stitches on the football as it flies through the air. Some say it makes it easier to tell when the lead actor takes a break and lets the stunt double take over.
so you think $8,000 for this plasma tv is expensive? well back in High School, i did a research paper on HDTV technology back when there was no such thing(back in 1994) some of the first HDTVs cost $30,000!!! and only corporations and big business bought them.
me to I remember that I was like, HOLY FUNUGGUT
I love my MS 360, and Sony has been really pissing me off latley, but my 360 will look great on my Sony 60" SXRD (new 2006 model has 1080p in and out)
If you have never seen one, check one out at a Sony store .... They are killer.
I have not impressed with the refresh rate on flate screen LCD or Plasma but the SXRD 2006 model has a 4ms delay.
NO PICTURE BREAKUP during fast motion (ie sports)
And half the price of this plasma.
yes I want one of these too... These TVs make most of the others sitting at Frys and Best Buy look like garbage in comparison when they are running the Hitachi videos of the flowers and the underwater fish and jellyfish.... great stuff...
See a xbox fanboi (to some) does buy Sony... Aww and world peace still didn't happen. My PS3 will look good on this too...
hm. This rocks. but are they nuts 10g!? WTF? a technological milestone indeed. but not for my pocket. if they said 5 grand then they'd make a killin.
