RE: Plasma TV

I guess I'll be another one to agree to disagree. What Hornlover said above was not determined by just one review or reviewer but several and the reviewer that you are referring to calibrated both sets, the Pioneer measured virtually the same as it did 4 years prior (Minolta LS-100 light meter used in 2009, a greater precision Klein K-10 used in 2013). You are also ignoring that the Pioneer Elite Kuro cost $7,000 and the Panasonic Viera TC-P65ZT60 cost $3,800 and when you factor in that the Kuro is 60" and the Viera 65", the panasonic is less than half the cost of the Kuro.

2009 Kuro Measurements
Black: 0.001
White: 33.5

2013 Kuro Measurements
black level 0.0015 ft-L (Klien meter measures 4 places)
white 33.6 ft-L

"But at these high measured contrast ratios, it's unlikely that there will be much of a visible difference, if any, between the two readings." Thomas J. Norton on October 15, 2013
