    Has the picture quality of the 503 improved in terms of black images when compared to the 504?

    Do you mean the new version of the 503MXE (50MX1)?

    As far as I am aware the new 50MXE shares same phosphor and glass as the current HDE's so the ultimate black level should be the same.

    Not sure, I think it depends on if you believe that pioneer have actually put a totally new panel in the 504/50MX. The original story was that they had not, and had put a dark screen in front to deepen blacks, but then truth from any manufacturer is hard to decide. NEC being owned by Pioneer these days should be using up to date technology.

    Hello all

    The NEW 50MXE1 and 43MXE1 will use the same underlying technology as the current PDP-504HDE and PDP-433HDE.

    All of these units have a darker front filter and new phosphors (primarily a new and improved green phosphor) compared to the PDP-503MXE and PDP-433MXE.

    I don't think Pioneer (Japan) actually 'own' NEC Plasma (Japan) as yet - they have a memorandum of agreement to buy/sell; though I'm not sure its happened as yet.

    No info about Pioneer/NEC sharing technology as yet.

    The 50MXE1 has the potential to better the PDP-504HDE in that the Top Level and Integrator menu has more fine tuning for the end user and or calibrator to use.

    Best regards

    Joe
