    Leigh, i was under the impression that thread is for settings, not an owners thread for general discussion or questions about the 7th gen pios. Thanks though.

    Thanks to you all............:thumbsup: I was looking for some info on running in settings etc for a Pioneer PDP-427OXD as I am in the process of changing from a Panny PX60 to the Pioneer. Panny has lots of purple snakes and I'm really not happy with it. Its a shame really cos Ive got a Panny TX-32LXD500 range and its excellent on all sources.

    So really are the Pioneers any good......? from what I have read they are :rolleyes: are there any thngs I need to be aware off...?

    Thanks for all your help:)

    I've had mine for almost 2months now, havent had a single problem with it, people have complained about the panel buzzing but i have not experienced this. I'm guessing you've already seen it for yourself, PQ is really good once its set up, handles SD content well compared to other screens. I've had no problems with retention or burn.

    The settings i used for run in are in the following thread
    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=433402
    the ones posted in the settings thread are for after run in.

    NOTE: Just for future reference, the settings in the thread above are lower than need be, i realised after having the screen for sometime that it is alot more resistive against burn and retention than i initially thought. I played it safe as at the time of posting there were no threads or guidance on the pio 427.

    Thanks VKara...yes I have seen a demo and I tried a DVD which IMHO was far better PQ than than the PX. Also the styling is alot better than the Panny.

    Looking forward to the new arriaval next Wednesday :clap: and saying goodbye to the dreaded purples snakes :hiya:

    Thanks for starting this thread matty. :smashin:

    After years of humming and arring i decided to take the plunge and buy my first plasma. I've become an avid fan of this great forum, spending hours reading various posts, i eventualy went for the pio 427, especially after finding out that it is available from JL for £1599 (thanks Leigh :smashin:)

    The big box is delivered Jan 2nd, and will no doubt need all the help i can get, running in etc.

    (BTW matty, notice you are also in Nottingham)

    Ok Guys, i know this thread start by matty looking for a pio 427 owners thread, since there isn't a general owners thread for these 7th gen models i reckon we should turn this into one. What you think? :thumbsup:

    Didn't know in which thread to post this :rolleyes:

    I've been browsing & some retailers sell the PDP-427XD with a table-top stand.

    Officially the TV set comes without any mounting options.

    Any I was just wondering if someone can confirm what the JL package has.

    From the picture on the John Lewis website I can only assume the TV comes with the silver-finish stand that does not swivel ?

    On the other hand EmpireDirect sell the TV with the stand in black which is the swivel version I assume as that's what the TV is standing on in-store.

    From what i know JL do the tv with the normal fixed tabletop stand and empiredirect do it with the black swivel stand. I thought the black stand looked better, so thats what i went for.

    Yeah, that's why I ask.

    I think the black stand blends in better with the rest of the set. And it also swivels which can come in handy :thumbsup:

    The Philips LCD I returned also looked smashing in black but it had this great big silver foot at the bottom :(

    Then again if you can get it from JL for £1600 with 5yr guarantee & free delivery does the silver stand matter ?

    :thumbsup:

    Have a look on ebay. Do a search for 'Pioneer Stand' and loads come up brand new :smashin:

    Leigh_1973 I too have silver speakers with my home cinema system so I understand the point about having a silver coloured speaker right at the foot of a black-coloured stand :D

    Of course the centre speaker can be positioned elsewhere if possible therefore revealing the full glory of the black swivel stand :thumbsup:

    The black swivel stand really does go well with the black finish on the tv, i had some trouble getting hold of one when i got my tv, rather than just get the silver one, i waited until i finally got hold of one in black.

    I got a black glass unit aswell, so really looks slick :cool: , with the silver bottom edge of the tv, silver dvd player, amp and center speaker it all works well and looks sweet :thumbsup: .

    Oh and it is a fairly hefty piece of kit :eek: , was bit concerned about putting it on the glass shelves, luckily the unit i got has black metal frame running under the glass shelves.

    i'd guess motion on fast games or games with aggresive camera pans will be much better on the pioneer plasma as LCD's even the best ones still have motion blur problems.

    i hate motion blur, it gives me a headache and makes me feel sick.

    Try using anti-static polish to clean them, works a treat! It can go a whole week before having to clean it.

    Hi

    I am waiting on delivery of the Pio 427OXD as a replacement for my Panny42PX60 and I too am hoping off good things for the PQ with my Xbox360. I have read on some posts that the PX60 suffers from green tinges when moving fast especially on GOW (which is coming next week :D )

    I havent had a problem with PGR3 on my panny but IMHO the 32 Panny LCD I also have is a better PQ than the Plasma.

    But from what I have seen from the 427 We won't be dissapointed.....:D

    i am in the "im gonna get me one of these" camp

    Please can someone tell me the distance from the glass on the stand to the bottom of the speaker. (assuming it has the black or silver ped)

    I have kef 5005 speakers and i am keen to place my centre speaker horizontally under the plasma. (not sure it will have the space)

    5cm from the bottom silver edge of the of the tv to the top surface of the swivel stand. 6cm from the bottom edge of the black speaker housing to the top surface of the stand. Theres a 1cm lip between the bottom of the black speaker housing and the silver edge at the bottom of the tv.
