I am thinking about purchasing a 55" 7600. Have also considered the Panasonic and Samsung plasmas. With the LG7600 and Samsung plasmas, it appears that I am at the mercy of a draw as to whether I get a good TV or not. With the LG it's the flashing light type of problems and with the Samsung plasma it's the buzzing issue. I would really like to mount a flat panel set over the fireplace in my den. However, I do not see a clear winner. I like the passive 3D and cheap glasses on the LG. The glasses on the Samsung are also relatively cheap - about $20, while the Panasonic glasses are about $50. Since I will need 6 pairs or more, the glasses add to the cost of the Panasonic. After reading the posts about the various TVs, I have about decided to just stick with my Samsung LED DLP set for a while longer. The picture is great with no issues, but not 3D and can not hang it over the fireplace.
