The Downside
The downsides of the Fujitsu P50XHA10US Plasmavision are few. I have been living with the monitor for almost five months and, to be completely honest, I am thrilled. The biggest drawbacks are probably more inherent in plasma monitors in general. While all plasma monitors have issues associated with black levels, the Fujitsu is exceptional in this area as compared to other plasma displays. Top quality plasma monitors like the Fujitsu Plasmavision are expensive and you probably need to decide if spending $10,999 is right for your budget when planning a home theater system. Additionally, Plasma monitors are extremely fragile and I know I would be reluctant to place this expensive screen in a home with small children. Finally, while phosphor burn-in is a possibility, if you have the monitor correctly calibrated, use the Screen Orbiter and White Screen features and are not obsessed with your Playstation or X-Box, you are practically guaranteed many years of trouble-free enjoyment from this topnotch and truly professional display. As a final downside, I might mention that this plasma is so good you may find yourself in danger of never leaving the house. I have not been to the movies since Fujitus’ Plasmavision arrived at my home. Coincidence? Probably not.

At the end of the day, buying a plasma monitor comes down to lifestyle more than anything else. Living in a small one-bedroom apartment in New York City, I know this firsthand. After you decide that a plasma monitor is right for you, I highly recommend that you give the Fujistu P50XHA10US Plasmavision monitor a serious audition. It is almost impossible for me to imagine a consumer being anything less than thrilled with this product, especially if you watch as many movies on DVD and HDTV as I do. The performance and picture quality of the P50XHA10US stands among the very best that is available among plasma displays. Of course if you decide not to buy the Fujitsu P50XHA10US, you might be disappointed having to watch this season’s Super Bowl on your old clunker.
