This 50" Pioneer plasma doesn't have the separate media receiver of the Pioneer Elite PRO-1130HD we reviewed and loved, but it's got a tremendous feature set, including integrated HD tuners and the ability to accept native 1080p/24 signals, and it's a full thousand bucks cheaper. Pioneer's recent generations of plasmas have improved greatly with blacks, contrast and color accuracy, and we can't wait to see this one. Available now.
