My brother has a 1997 60-some inch Pioneer Elite, rear projection.
I think it was around 10K new. Still works, and the picture doesn't look too bad.
It's still set up in his basement. It's huge and a bitch to move.

Still using my 50" Kuro Plasma in my bedroom. Bought it wen they discontinued production from a local place that has since closed. Paid around $750. Couldn't be happier with how well it has served.

You got a great price on that set. I paid around $2700 for one of the last 50" Kuros (Pro-111FD) as well in '09. This replaced a Pioneer Pro-520HD RP set.

Pioneer, at one time made the best (in my opinion) CRT rear projection sets, which were sold thru audiophile (home theater) stores, and they also made a line sold thru big box stores such as Best Buy. I bought one new at Best Buy in the 1990's. It was very nice.

Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana has several Pioneer Badged Flat-Panel TVs located throughout their facilities, but I've never seen them on whenever I've been there, I'm guessing they're plasmas seeing as you guys are saying that they only made high end plasma sets. Anyways it seems like a waste that Riley Hospital would spend about $1,000,000 or more for all of those High End Plasma sets only to have them just hang on the wall behind a pane of plexiglass looking pretty, although I'm guessing their original intent was to have the TVs tuned to Nikelodeon, or Cartoon Network or Disney Channel so that the kids visiting there could watch cartoons or something like that but apparently that never happened...
