Great TV. Ordered in September based on reviews. However make sure you think well in advance about location of the media box as if you want to place it away from the screen and the supplied display port cable is not long enough, you may have a long wait for an 8-10 metre cable. Pioneer service is rubbish (UK and Japan) and have left the donkey work of cable supply to people like Wireworld. £260 later for an 8metre cable and after 6 weeks of waiting to hook up the TV, I'd like to say it was worth the wait. However the shine has been taken off the 'new toy'.....all because Pioneer didn't want to subscribe to the HDMI licence. Oh - by the way, the display port cable doesn't transmit as many formats as HDMI. (eg.Digital Master). Poor show for a £3k TV Pioneer.
I've had this TV for a little over two weeks and have to say, sad as it is, I still find myself getting excited on the drive home from work at what I'll be watching on it that evening.
The picture is so amazing you will be trawling through your back catalogue of DVD's and marvelling at the extra detail and depth the Pioneer manages to drag out of the disc.
If like me you love finding out about a new piece of kit for yourself, you will be more than satisfied as it has a feature list as long as my arm...and a manual to match!
While I appreciate it is expensive, it really is worth every penny. It looks great, especially on the wall (I got the white version to keep the boss happy), will deal with almost any signal you can throw at it and takes the pictures from blu-ray to another level (my son is convinced Wall-e is living inside the TV).
Shop around and you can find it for well under the RRP, I paid £2299 for mine with a 5 year warranty and that was without a great deal of searching.
I'm gutted that Pioneer are pulling out of this sector, but as swan songs go this is a belter...
****Little tip if you need to convince the other half, get the store to demo the screen with the Whales on the Planet Earth Blu-Ray…..worked for me!******

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
