Worst TV I have ever owned !

Perry Rosenbarger, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased my FPT5084 in 2008. After it went out of warranty, the power supplied failed ($370). Today, that power supply went out, again. Another $370 ? I think not ! I just purchased a Panasonic P50S30 for $844 (half of what I paid for the worthless FPT5084).

Sweetness

Ben G., Newegg
10 October 2008
  • Summary: You will love this TV, no doubt.
  • Pros: Awesome plasma set -- easy break-in and calibration with a DVE/ISF disc. Looks amazing from 8-10 ft. Second-to-none viewing angles + the added bonus of the swivel stand. Samsung nailed this one on its first 1080p plasma set.
  • Cons: This set is now about 2 gens old -- seems like a high price for such an old model (have seen it on Newegg for as low as $1699, but got mine at Circuit City for $1399). Speakers are carp, but that holds true for 99% of flat panels, so no fault there.

User Review

John M., Newegg
29 May 2008
  • Summary: I would consider myself a 6 out of 10 with regards to being a video/audiophobe. I just want to see a good picture that sounds great for the money I spent and have enough connections for my equipment. Some of the past reviews mentioned things such as noise, heat, crackling, etc.
  • Pros: The picture on this TV is absolutely amazing! I bought this TV to replace my 50” Hitachi rear projection LCD. Initially, I was a bit nervous about buying such a high dollar item online, but I said the heck with it. Since I’ve purchased many items from Newegg before, I was comfortable and felt I w...
  • Cons: I've been sitting here for over an hour and after 2 beers, I still can't think of anything. Over the next few months, if I do run into any problems or issues, I'll be sure to revisit this column, but.

Now THIS is HD

Matt N., Newegg
18 May 2008
  • Pros: I bought this to replace my 46" Sony LCD and wow, what a difference! The design of the TV is phenomenal on its own, and is only exceeded by the amazing picture it produces. I thought I had the best picture with it, then realized I was only at 720p. A quick trip to Best Buy for an HDMI cable and w...

Great TV for the price

Curtis, Amazon
4 May 2008
  • Summary: I have had this TV for about 6 months now, and I have been very happy with it. My only complaint would be that to change sources you have to cycle through all of them. There is a way to select them through the main menu, but it takes you just as long to get to that menu as it does to cycle through...

Great TV

Marc V., Newegg
3 May 2008
  • Summary: Thanks again Newegg, for another great deal and fast service.
  • Pros: The TV is great. Everything about is just what I wanted and more. The picture is clean and clear with DVD, BluRay, and plane TV. The price was nice too. Newegg as always was good, we just moved so we had a new address, we had to call fix the problem, but they got it shipped out quickly and Free. ...
  • Cons: Well some of the cons are true, I guess. It does get hot, but just don't stand right behind it. Turn on the air-conditioning, it will be fine. It also makes the humming noise, but if you are watching something you can't hear it. So as long as you are not watching a silent film, you should be fine...

4 Month Update Review

Anonymous, Newegg
21 March 2008
  • Summary: Some people have mentioned a crackling noise from the sets. I had it too and was worried until I figured out what it was, it's the PLASTIC trim surrounding the set HEATING up after it is turned on (this plasma TV radiates a bit of heat), the noise was intermittent until the entire set had fully...
  • Pros: After about 4 months of ownership, I thought I'd give an update review. I'm so pleased that I've recommended this set to my friends and several have bought it, all are as pleased as I am. That's hard to do as I'm sure most know. The colors are drop dead gorgeous and accurate, detail level is fant...
