Summary: great picture for the most part. some ota football games were fantastic. too many white scenes seemed washed out though. Buzzing was intolerable. Most noticeable on menus (netflix splash screen was horrible every time), scenes with a white window in the panoramic view, etc. Absolutely intolerable during quiet or silent moments. It got to the point where I could not even enjoy the content that was not buzzing because I was constantly listening for buzzing noises.
Summary: I had bought a Panasonic plasma (Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT25 50-inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV, Black) from amazon. Most everything about the set was fair (aesthetics) to excellent (resolution, black levels), but one problem made the set impossible to watch: snow. There is a graininess in the picture that I subsequently found reported elsewhere, and that simply ruins everything that is good about the set.
