Great Picture but LOUD Buzz!

CT, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: The picture on this TV is at least a 9/10. One of the best panels I've seen. However, there's a very loud and annoying buzzing noise that can be heard from directly in front of the TV. Unfortunately, it is loudest at a seated height in front of the TV. It is so loud that you can hear it even with normal volume. It basically ruins the experience of having such a great TV. I have already submitted a ticket under the Samsung Warranty. I will post updates as I have them.

Annoying shimmer

Ron Schaaf, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I really wanted to love this TV after the great reviews I read about it. But whenever I looked at it (particular with peripheral vision) I saw a shimmer (or flickering) that really started bothering me. I had to return it, unfortunately. The set was plenty bright during the night, but was definitely washed out during the day. We ended up with a Samsung LED-backlit TV that we like far better.

Nice TV, but poor black levels. ZT60 worlds better

manicwaterfall, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm guessing this will be unpopular with most people here. I had one of these and ended up returning it. It's great when you have nothing with which to compare it, but then again so is basically any high def TV. Side by side, the picture on the ZT60 from Panasonic, specifically the depth of blacks and contrast levels is night and day different. Two friends and I did a side by side with a 60" VT60 and a 65" ZT6. Both Panasonics blew it away. I ended up returning it.

Wish it was better

FStark, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I was so excited to buy this TV and have it installed. After a month, I've very happy with the picture quality. It's great. Unfortunately, that's about all I'm happy with. The remote is a complete pain, and I would rather have a more traditional remote control. The apps work sometimes. The Netflix app sound would cut out ever 30 seconds, so I couldn't even use the one App I bought the TV to use. Then, the unit broke after 30 days (the HDMI ports apparently quit working).
