Beautiful picture, aweful buzzing
Romulo Osio, Amazon

Summary: I did a fair amount of research before deciding on this television. I was looking for an upgrade to my 4 year, 32 inch Sharp LCD. I own both an XBOX 360 and PS3 which get allot of use. My wife and I also watch a few TV shows and if nothing else is going on I usually have it tuned to one of the HD channels as I do other things. In other words, it's on all the time and actively used quite frequently.
Summary: Received this TV (59D7000, 10/2011 build date) this week from Phoenix warehouse. Also my first Amazon TV purchase. Pilot came on time. This is a beautiful TV. However, it's rather flimsy. Right out of the box the metal bezel is bent and sightly dented. TV wobbles on the stand. When I turned on the TV, it buzzes. I'm about 7 ft away. It's loudest coming straight out of the middle of the TV. Could not get wifi to work (used same setting on my PS3 and it worked fine).
Summary: TV has a great picture most of the time. Very detailed, rich colors, smooth motion. I had two issues with it soon after setting it up: 1. The tv buzzes very noticeably. It sounds like a high-pitched sizzling. Not good when listening at lower volumes. I sit about 8 feet away and it gives me a headache. 2. The HDMI sources (cable, blu-ray) suffer from subtle, but noticeable, screen brightness fluctuations.
Pros: It is a great TV. Exterior is beautiful, 3d is excellent, remote is excellent, samsung's control interface is miles away the best ever. Good color and blacks. Nice tv.
Cons: Sorry, but I have had three Samsung LCD tv's and plasma is no contest for lcd's vivid, startling colors. Wife and I have been tweaking this thing for days to get some brightness to the picture and it is impossible. Do not know why anyone would prefer s
