Why not just give the whole world the "PAL" TVs? Really I should call them "play everything" TVs or something.
The only physical characteristic that is necessary to be different is the AC voltage input and related power supply.

I think you have two options:

1) Write to Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, LG, etc. and let them know they need to find a way to enable judder-free playback of 1080/50 content on NTSC TVs. Be sure to remind them they already have the firmware and it has to be a free exercise.

2) Buy your PAL TV, bring it to N. America, plug it in and let it do it's thing. After all, they are the "do everything" TVs that you speak of so I doubt you'll encounter any problems.

I did a little research after asking my question. The "multi system" TVs I mentioned should do the trick. Samsung sells them in N. America with model numbers starting with PS (plasma), LA (LCD), or UA (LED). These TVs are supposed to be able to display 50 hz content without having to convert it.

What I explained in another thread, it's all about market and cost:

Same logic why China can have a proprietory nowhere-else 3G standard ie TDSCDMA because they are the largest mobile market. Or why manufacturers are afraid of ITC because a ban will halt their access to the largest market. Bigger speaks louder

So since my niece threw a wiimote on my 63c7000 3d plasma, and since reparation is damn HUGE, i prefet to buy a new set.Now, since i'm pissed off and so damn upset about my 63c7000 BUZZZZZZZ , and i can't live longer with it, the doubt is if to go on less-inch like a 55" 3d led tv, or if i can go with the 64D8000 plasma. Can you just tell me a final word on the 64d8000 buzz ?is it affected or not ?i like if someone can tell me...there's no buzz at all.A...there is a very little buzz will be already too much for my sensible ears

thanks.

Even for my basic research almost all plasmas have a buzz of one type or another. You may have.to put your ear up to the TV but they all buzz. If any buzz at all is unacceptable then you.may want to.go with and LCD/LED TV, but then there are other issues you need to look for.

Added PC Mag's review of the PN51D8000 to OP. They give it the Editors Choice award, though they calculate CR in a non-realistic way (yes, it's not the most renowned TV review publication).

it seems that the pc mag review site prefers led/lcd tvs rather than plasma. intresting as most other review sites normally would always pic plasma over led for overall picture quality.

Guys,

I am very close to pulling the trigger on this set. I just need confirmation that "fullfilled by Amazon" truly means that you can take advantage of the Amazon return policy. From what I've read, this is correct, but I wanted to double check with you guys.

Thanks

Best to call Amazon and ask because I have read numerous times it is a different return policy

Beginning April 24, Samsung will provide two pairs of 3D active glasses for its entire 3D TV lineup at no additional cost with the purchase of any Samsung 3D LED TV or 3D Plasma TV.

Is this true still? If I buy one SAMSUNG plasma TV today, I get free 3D glasses?
