The Good:Picture quality is amazing. I did my instore comparisons and there is daylight between the competition.

The Bad:None

I have had my Pioneer for 4 months and other TV's dont come close to the ease of operation, sound and picture quality.

The Good:Incredible Picture quality, Fantastic sound Beautiful piano finish.

The Bad:Absolutely nothing

Coming from a 26" 15 year old Panasonic tv, anything these days would have been better. I had been dreaming for a Pioneer ever since they came out but when they announced they were stopping production, I just had to get my hands on one. I bought a Panasonic 32" FHD tv 2 months before the Pioneer and was amazed with the quality of the thing. When i opened the Pioneer box, i freaked at the amazing piano finish on it and was astounded when i turned the thing on. It blew everything else out of the water, the picture quality is first class and the sound from those speakers was like my current stereo system. I mounted it on the entertainment unit which i had to modify and just enjoyed the fact that I had spent my money on something that won't be bettered for a long time. After about 2 weeks, i had an issue and i was very disappointed. I should have bought the 60" but I'm still extremely pleased.

The Good:Unbelievable picture quality, great reproduction of lower quality signals, advnaced calibration options.

The Bad:None

This television is, quite simply, the best tv money can buy without jumping to ridiculous costs (B&O etc). I previously owned a Pioneer 427. That in it's own right was a fantastic set and even today, nearly 3 years on, could rival most of the current competitiors being fed an equal signal. This set however really puts every other sets Pioneer has made to shame. If they were planning to go out with a bang, they succeeded. In fact it was more of a kaboom! 1080P content looks absolutely stunning as one would expect, but it's the LX509's capability of displaying lower quality signals (DVD, HDTV etc) that really amazed me! One thing I've noticed having worked as both an installer and now in sales is that the majority of 1080P panels look terrible for anything other than 1080P content, so it was a very welcomed surprise to see just how well Pioneer stacked up in comparison! The level of calibration options have always been good in the Pioneer tv's, but they have expanded further with this final range. The standard picture settings out of the box have also been expanded. Most sets nowadays come with your typical 'standard', 'vivid' and 'cinema' settings, but Pioneer have a few extras such as 'sport', 'optimum' (which uses the light sensor on the panels to adjust picture settings to the amount of ambient light in the room) and the new addition 'performance', giving you a number of different settings to choose from before even looking at calibrating the set. Sound quality out of Pioneer ests have always been great, and nothing has changed in that department, quite frankly the most powerful tv speakers I've encountered. Style is, as always, very elegantly done. No matter how many generations they have made, Pioneer still make the black gloss frame look classy. All in all, this is one fantastic tele.
