Torture testing Panasonic's latest plasma Video
Torture testing Panasonic's latest plasma Video Transcript
-Time for our first-ever TV torture test. I'm pretty excited about this one. We have our CNET editors' favorite. This is our best TV overall from Panasonic and I brought in my good friend, Eric Franklin, to help me try to break it. So, we're gonna start with some video gaming, move on to some mishaps with wall mounting, and then maybe a little decorating disaster. I hope you've been practicing rage quit. -Yes. Perfectly honed at this point. A lot of losing lately. -Excellent. Let's do it. All right. It is time for the rage quit test of our Panasonic TV. I'm here with Kyle and Max from Game Spotter, and of course, Eric. We're gonna play a little Call of Duty until somebody loses their temper. -It's show time. -Woah! Oh! I killed a guy. Come on! Who shot me in the back? -Me. -It was you? You actually shot me in the back? -It was me. -You can do that? -Yeah. -Painful. Cannot get my missile launcher. Just-- -Come on. Ooh. -Dude, you broke it. Already! -I didn't even throw that hard. I really didn't throw that hard. -He's scared himself. You don't think you threw it that hard because look-- -I honestly didn't feel like I threw it that hard. -All right. Come here. Come and see what you've done. I like that this is what we brought him down for, and now, he's in trouble. -Wow. Did I do that? It's-- -Okay. As I'm looking at this, I see basically a spiderweb for every single hit point-- -Yeah. -like there's here, here, and here. Three controllers hit the TV and every single one of those controllers caused a break. I find that to be disappointing. I think TV should be tougher than this. -So do I. -Should we try to turn it back on? -We should try at least. -I think so. Where's the remote? You have the remote. Try to turn it back on. Oh, I'm kind of like afraid of it. -I am pressing power and it's definitely not-- nothing has happened. -That's kind of no surprise. I think we saw the screen pretty much blow-- -Yeah. -from the impact. -Yeah. Yeah. We did. As soon as I-- As soon as I hit it-- -Well, I think now that the screen is pretty well destroyed, there's no need to bother with the water test, but we can still check some structural integrity by trying to wall mount this. -Yeah. I think so. -You know, I'm not very good at this handyman stuff. -Neither am I. Really. -Okay. Let's wall mount this, baby. -Yup. -Okay. -All right. -I'm thinking. -Can you go higher? -You think? -Yeah. -Alrighty. -Yeah. -Okay. -Yeah. That one right there. -Yeah. You got it? -Yeah, I got it. -Okay. I'm just saying redecorating is hard. Okay, that was bad. Shelves fall on it. -Yeah. -Yeah. -We definitely have some more cracks. -Oh, wow. Tons. -Yeah. Everywhere that the-- Ooh, look at the bezel has come up over there. -Oh man! -Over here, the bezel is completely twisted. -Wow. This is only like, what, 4 feet-- 4-feet drop. -Yeah. That was about 4 feet. Should we try to lift it back up? -Sure. -Do you want the backward slide? -Yeah. Let's check it out. -It's just-- Ooh. I mean, it is pretty heavy. -Yeah. Oh, the back looks intact. Wanna-- -Yeah. Okay. So, the back is fine. The bezel and the screen are shattered, destroyed. -Yeah. -I wanna-- I kinda wanna do a little research and see what the cost would be on fixing a TV like this, but I guess, now, we know. -You don't drop it? -Be careful with your TVs. -I guess so. -Yeah. They're fragile. It's a delicate flower. -It totally is. -And we killed it. I think it's safe to say that this is a fail for the TV. -Yeah. I think that's safe for sure. -And we've learned an important lesson here. -Which is don't drop your TVs. -Yeah. And don't throw things at your TVs. -Probably not. -But it's a-- you know, I think it's good. I think people have kids and when they're shopping for a TV, they wanna know how much it can take and it turns out the answer is not very much. -Not at all, really. -So, you wanna play cards or something. -I have UNO.
