Hello.


I would like to know if anyone has anything negative to say about the fujitsu. I would like to hear all sides before I make a decision. It seem like " If God had a PLasma TV, it would be the Fujitsu P50XHA10" etc....


Thanks.

- price

- online selling policy


But for god-likes it probably doesn't matter...

The P50 does things as good or better than the other plasmas

I demo'd (Pio and Panny) IMO. That's why I got it. I can't think

of a "negative" (eg. not perfect black level detail :) )

that the P50 has that other plasmas do not. The things

Andrzej mentioned apply to Fujitsu, the company, not P50, the plasma.

Edit: OK, I did think of one "negative". If you send "native rate" via DVI

to the P50, you loose a couple columns of pixels on either side.

However, empirical tests with the Bravo D1 show that the

"native rate" PQ is the same as sending 720P or 1080i and letting

the P50 scaler do the rest - at least using Avia test patterns as a basis.

Ithink I remember a post about a screen issue, namely that there was a green(?) tint/hue in an upper corner?

Exactly, a "trick". You gotta definitely jump through some hoops to get a Fujitsu at a discount or over the internet and still keep the manufacturer's warantee.


I'd rather purchase from a manufacturer that stands behind their product and allows good old American competition on the sale.


For the imperceptable difference in the picture between a Panasonic or a Pioneer and the Fujitsu, I'd take the thousands of dollars in savings and a good solid warantee any day.


If Fujitsu plasmas are so precious they can keep 'em.

As others have said, the real negative with Fujitsu is that they sell at a premium over competing brands. I have a Fujitsu 42 ED panel and love it--price was a factor for me, but not the deciding factor.


One other negative against the Fujitsu vs Pio and the new Panny, is that the Fujitsu is not designed with a card slot/expansion feature. The Pio has had this feature for a long time, and the new Panny just added its own version. That said, IMHO the current Pio doesn't compete with the Fujitsu in terms of pure picture quality (go ahead and flame me--it just doesn't). I haven't seen the new Panny but I suspect it gives the Fujitsu a run for its money (no pun intended);)

It's not an imperceptible difference. There are very noticeable differences between all 3 of the plasmas you mentioned. The scaler on the Fujitsu is excellent for a built in factory unit - noticeably more so than Panasonic's and Pioneer's. Also, the Pioneer's black levels are not as deep as the Fujitsu and Panasonic's. This is not an opinion, but a fact backed up by measured test results.


Furthermore, it is not only a picture quality issue. There is the issue of connectivity. With respect to the older Panasonic, it does not have DVI and it does not have as many connections as the Fujitsu. Of course, this could be overcome if you have a receiver/tuner which does HD component switching, but you still won't have DVI and you still will only have 1 single setting for all your component inputs.


This is not to say that you are wrong. Each person makes their own decisions based on what is most important to them. Back when I purchased my Fujitsu, it was about $1,500 more than the comparable Panasonic and about $2,500 more than the comparable Pioneer. It was worth it to me to spend the extra money on the Fujitsu. It may not be the same for you. $2,500 can buy a ton of other stuff.

Rich,

Yes, a lot of P50s have a pinkish tint in the upper left hand corner

that is visible when viewing the white screen. However, I've never

seen it during normal viewing and it's presence has diminished over time.


Given the horrid pricing and internet policy of Fujitsu, you'd think nobody

would buy their plasmas and they'd stop making them. It's funny nobody

bitches about price or internet policy when talking about one

of their current ALIS panels.

Hey Dixon,

Lets have some "Pun intended" posts here!


After all the blond jokes and stuff, Fujitsu's gotta take a turn. Holier than thou AV fiends, fire away: if folks don't respect how hard you work to earn your share of Home Theater goodies, they've shut themselves into a ghetto of rich boys in luxury homes. Nothing wrong with that, but they sure shouldn't expect us regular Joe six-packs to hesitate to poke some fun at them. :D


Cheers,

Two bored casino dealers were waiting at a craps table. A very

attractive blonde woman arrived and bet twenty thousand dollars

on a single roll of the dice.


She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much

luckier when I'm completely nude."


With that she stripped from her neck down, rolled the

dice and yelled, "Mama needs a new Fujitsu Plasma!"


Then she hollered..."YES! YES! I WON! I WON!" She

jumped up and down and hugged each of the dealers.


She then picked up all the money and the Casino's Fujitsu Plasma and quickly departed. The dealers just stared at each other dumbfounded.


Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?"

The other answered, "I don't know, I thought YOU were

watching!"


Moral: Not all blondes are dumb - ya gotta get naked and win in a Casino if you want a Fujitsu. ;)

One of us cheapskates finally decided to spring for an overpriced Fujitsu plasma. After haggling over the installation fee, it was scheduled for delivery.


The installer arrived the next morning, the buyer had left for work. His wife, hot looking blonde, answered the door in nothing but some see-through pjs.


After he'd hooked up the Plasma, she took to him upstairs and gave him the best sex of his life. They went downstairs and she made him some eggs, and then she handed him a dollar.


He asked what that was for and the blonde replied "Oh it was my husbands idea, he said screw that Fujitsu installer, give him a dollar, the breakfast was my idea."
