Amazing picture quality diminished by loud buzzing.
15 April 2012
Summary: NOTE: The brightness fluctuations that people complain about were pretty distracting, but there is a (possibly warranty-voiding) fix available if you search on AVS Forum and it works perfectly. It fixed my issues and made the only con the buzzing.
Pros: -AMAZING picture quality, -Thin and attractive design, -3D seems to work well, -Great picture controls, 10pt white balance, etc., -Smart Hub is decent but I don't use it at all
Cons: -The BUZZING! I have sensitive hearing and on my set the buzzing was so high-pitched that even with the TV at volume 15-20 I could hear the buzzing from 10' away. I'm returning this TV, I just can't stand the distracting hiss emanating from it.
Summary: The picture on this plasma is amazing at a great price, however there was a distinct buzzing that could be heard from 8-10 feet away even with the volume up. Supposedly all plasmas have a buzz, however this was extremely noticeable.
Summary: And, there is nothing you can do about it! After three weeks of enjoying this TV's superb picture quality I decided to return it for three reasons. Mainly - it does buzz constantly!!! Samsung on their support site will explain this as normal plasma sound. However, after reading reviews of other plasma TV brands, I didn't find as many complaints, almost no reviews about this issue.
Summary: This is a really beautiful TV. Spectacular picture. I have not had any problems with peeling (yet) and don't find the brightness "popping" to be an issue. But the buzz is seriously annoying. I already owned a Samsung 50" plasma and there is no audible buzz on that one, so I despite the negative reviews I figured this one would be fine too. Wrong. The buzz comes and goes, but often it's audible even with the sound system cranking an action scene.
Summary: As reported by others, the Samsung plasma's buzz. All plasma's buzz to some extent or another and I knew this going in, but figured I'd give it a try anyway. While the calibrated picture is very pleasing, for me, in my installation setting, the buzzing is fully discernible when watching content at a normal volume level from over 10' away and unacceptable.
Summary: Received this TV a week ago. It was a replacement for a damaged one I had received a week earlier. I had already read about some of the issues with the Real Black Filter peeling, but I was hoping i would get one without the issue. The TV creates a stunning picture. Better than any other i have seen. great color, deep blacks and handles fast motion with ease. I inspected the TV when I first recieved it and there was no peeling.
