It’s been a sad 15 months since Pioneer’s deadline to cease production of the world’s best TVs—its Kuro plasma display panels—and to cancel its upgrade to a possible tenths generation. Vultures are still staying perplexed.
Technology keeps fast-forwarding in an unbelievable speed, or does it? Panasonic recently released its 2010 series G20/G25 plasma TVs by March 15th.
According to a CNET review by David Katzmaier, Panasonic G20/G25 plasma TVs are excellent; oh, really?
On the same review, David intimated that the Kuro still beats the Pana when it comes to picture quality and black level. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the Panasonic G20/G25 is a fantastic TV, but come on, it’s been more than two years since the initial release of the Kuro 9G, which is like forever in the tech world, and the competitors still can’t beat the Kuro.
With the 3D fever spreading all over the world, and its minimal requirements for a 120 Hz refresh rate which is currently unattainable in plasmas, and greening everything, and affordable brands’ LED 3D adverts on reaching over 400 Hz, the Kuro is history.
Vultures shall remain on-call; maybe 2011 will be the year when the Kuro gets to pass the torch…
The Kuro is dead, long live the Kuro!فارسی
