Best Of The Best 2006: Sharper Image

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2006

The best high-definition plasma televisions provide extraordinary video while doing a significant favor for your home’s interior design. A standout in this category, the Pioneer Elite Pro-1130HD, combines all the best technologies from this premier manufacturer into one display.

Image enhancements can make video look better by punching up colors and sharpness, but this may degrade other aspects of the image. Unlike many televisions, the Pro-1130HD lets you either retain the enhancements or turn them off for a more accurate picture.

This TV delivers razor-sharp images thanks to the panel’s 1,280-by-768-pixel array. Larger and smaller sizes are available, but in our opinion the 50-inch Pioneer Elite Pro-1130HD ($5,500) is one of the best video displays you can own.
