Earlier today, Sharp and Pioneer re-launched the Elite brand, with its Pro-60X5FD and Pro-70X5FD LED LCD TVs. Both models cater to the high-end home entertainment crowd, with pricing set at $6,000 and $8,500, for the 60-inch and 70-inch sets, respectively. We had a chance to take a look at the larg...

It was a dark day when Pioneer announced its mighty Kuro HDTVs would be no more, but the Pioneer Elite brand still has significant cachet and will return in 2011 on new high end TVs. The bad news? They will be LCDs, not plasmas, manufactured by its partner Sharp, a not entirely surprising move sinc...

Peeks and glimpses are alright, but we all know those are just the crumbs leading up to the feast. CNET's UK branch was able to grab hold of what appears to be a retail Pioneer KRL-32V KURO LCD, and of course, they paused every few seconds during the presumably mayhem-filled unboxing process in ord...

On the whole, we'd say KURO plasma owners are pretty stoked about their sets. Those who'd prefer a KURO-branded LCD, however, have been waiting anxiously to hear something more from ole Pioneer for months. Thankfully, the firm has finally spoken, and while it doesn't mention any brand / model names...

Not that we weren't expecting Pioneer's much-anticipated KURO LCD to emerge in Europe sometime this month, but early August sure beats 11:59PM on August 31st. Due to obvious language barriers, it's a bit hard to tell where exactly this 37-inch KRL-37V is in Germany, but it's obvious that it's for sa...

Just under a month ago, Pioneer finally came clean with its KURO LCD rollout in Europe. Now, we're being treated to the first hands-on pictures of the 32- and 37-inch models, both of which are set to hit shelves next month. We'll let the photos do the talking from here.
