Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Picture is the best I've seen (even compared to the latest led backlit screens). Picture adjustment also means you can get the picture just how you want it! Looks very sexy in White ;-)
Bad points:
Maybe a little baffling if you delve to far into the menus.

Confirmed purchaser Eye for detail

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic, out of the box picture... Sharp, clear, fast moving images. Media box (Gloss black) to one side with only two wires going to Monitor. User preferences allow you to customize to improve sound or to fit in with an existing Amp. Room light sensor to calibrate the picture is a great idea. Remote can be used with other equipment. EXCELLENT TV...
Bad points:
Slow TV Guide.

Manufacturer's Description

50-inch ‘HD Ready 1080p’ KURO with Digital Terrestrial and Satellite Tuner (Separate Media Receiver)

Intense sight and sound, perfectly tuned.

Take your home entertainment experience into a new dimension. Delivering uncompromised quality, optimised performance and intelligent design, the KRP-500A will transform your living environment into a perfectly tuned space.

KURO means black in Japanese and black is at the very heart of the KURO concept. Blacker than ever, a KURO flat screen TV creates black tones of such depth and purity that every detail, every colour, every shade becomes brilliantly alive.

Just 64mm thin and with a separate media receiver, the KRP-500A is clean and contemporary in design; a centrepiece complementing almost any interior.

Wherever you install your KURO or whatever you plan to watch, you can be sure of perfect picture quality. The KRP-500A gives a wide selection of picture customisation options, so you can fine-tune the picture to exactly match your taste.

With its Enhanced Optimum Mode, the KRP-500A actively senses the light conditions and analyses the viewing content, ensuring that the picture you see is as perfect as it can be. In addition, the audio can be harmonised with the programme being watched. The KRP-500A comes with an extra colour sensor that measures the colour characteristics of ambient light to provide the picture optimum to your eye’s sensation.

The KRP-500A delivers flicker-free images in razor-sharp 1080p resolution. View films coming from Blu-ray in the original 24 frames per second – precisely the same rate at which they were originally filmed and mastered. What you see (and hear) is true to the original.

Equipped with an integrated analogue tuner, DVB-T tuner for digital terrestrial TV reception and a DVB-S/DVB-S2 tuner for receiving satellite signals, the KRP-500A is compliant with the EICTA ‘HDTV 1080p Minimum Requirements’ and supports MPEG-4 high definition decoding.

The KRP-500A has 4 HDMI inputs that enable a quick and convenient connection to a broad range of source devices. Equipped for easy integration into your home network, the KRP-500A features a DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified Home Media Gallery, enabling you to enjoy compressed audio files, photos and even high definition content from one or more connected media servers.

With KURO LINK and an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) easy operation is virtually guaranteed. KURO LINK allows you to access the main functions of all your compatible Pioneer equipment with a single remote control.
