Thanks gel.

No harm in asking I suppose, will just have to get myself in the zone before ringing, otherwise I'll just be really apologetic when I ask, which will undoubtedly result in failure.  :shifty:

RE: Pioneer Kuro club members - anyone sold their TV yet?

Hi gel

Tv arrived last night, so no time to do anything with it yet. As for the glasses, I need to ring JL about the 5 year warranty anyway, so will broach the subject then, though I do expect them to say no.

Ah cool, let us know how you get on, because the glasses are free with it, and that deal has been going for a couple of months now.

You will be able to give us an unbiased comparison of the 2 tvs hopefully. Smile

Yeah will do. Might try them side by side before the Kuro leaves me. Mine is not as good as the 5090 or KRP, so we'll see how it measures up

Hello BBB, we're still hoping for that comparison of the new Panasonic 50GT50B with your soon-to-depart Pioneer PDP-LX508D. My particular points of interest are black level and sharpness. These two points because in my particular case although my Samsung in the parlour does not have the black level of the Kuros, especially the 9th generation 5090 in the kitchen, it is sharper than the Kuros, even with the sharpness control at only 20 out of 100.

RE: Pioneer Kuro club members - anyone sold their TV yet?

I've had the Pana since Thursday evening, but haven't tried it yet. Just keep looking at the Kuro and thinking to myself "Have I done the right thing?". I Know I won't know until I try the Pana, but it's going to be very hard letting the Kuro go. I want to sell it to someone I know, then I can pop round now and again to see it.  :cry:

Hi mate

 

With John Lewis you are allowed to try it, even if you change your mind after seven days, and decide you don't want it.  I would be very surprised if you were not 100 per cent happy.  So go for it.   Smile

I guess what the previous buyer did, which was why it was reduced by JL. I know it's a great tv, it's just the Kuro has been the best tv I've ever had, picture is still stunning, looks great, so it's gonna be hard to see it go. 

I'm not going to sell on ebay and let then take 10% of the selling price, so I'm either going to sell it to someone I know, or on AVForums classified section. 

I'd like to put the Pana in the bedroom and keep the Kuro in the lounge for now, but money wise I can't really afford to do it, plus the value of the Kuro will keep tumbling. 

Will set up the Pana later, just not now.

RE: Pioneer Kuro club members - anyone sold their TV yet?

Ah, I sympathise, BBB. You sound like a man who is about to take up seriously with a new woman, but who also can't stop thinking about his ex!

However, I'm more callous. When I got my Samsung TV in March the 50" Pioneer was demoted from the parlour to the kitchen without a second's thought!
