The problem is the smell is only really apparant when it is on a brighter mode, and the smell is too strong away from the TV. This is after 2 weeks. If the replacement is the same, I don't know if I can accept that. Hopefully it won't be.

Have you not been reading this thread, 95% of GT50 owners are very happy with their sets, only those few that are claiming they hear buzzing and that is actually bothering them and (odor)? As for me buzzing is not even an issue even at low volume and odor? Don't know what the heck they are talking about, maybe they should clean their house. Now I'm not saying they are making it up but if it really bothers them,they can exchange it. This set outperforms pretty much anything out right now in this $$$$ range.

I haven't heard one single buzz from any of them, not from 10 feet away, and not from 1 foot away. And yet according to all the hearing tests available through modern state-of-the-art medicine, my hearing is 100% intact and unimpaired.

I do not discount the fact that there might be some "buzzers" out there, but they are clearly an exception, especially those that buzz loudly enough to draw the attention of the viewer...

I'm familiar with the line: "All plasmas buzz." Now if that is a scientifically verifiable fact, then it means that any possible buzzing on my 3 sets is not even noticeable, and honestly, I haven't gone looking for any... Why should I?

Long story short: AVS is a wonderful place to learn a ton of useful "techie-stuff" about tvs and other electronic machines, and to get a lot of invaluable trouble shooting tips on them... One downside to frequenting this site is that one can very easily become a "techie-hypochondriac" if they do not take some of the things they hear with some perspective...

If you're planning on getting a GT50, don't make a mountain out of a little "buzz." If you're unlucky enough to get a "buzzer" the first time around, you can easily exchange it for a "non-buzzer," nice & easy, problem solved!

At any rate, I'd say there is more than a 90% chance that you won't get a buzzer... And I say those are some pretty good odds.

Just opened and powered up a new 50GT50. Had issues with two GT30s (green blobs in one and pink vertical line in the other). Had it on now just over an hour. Picture is fantastic. No strange odours. No buzzing at any distance, even with my ear by the screen. Don't have a blank white screen to test but watched a 5 minute clip of hockey and no undesireable noise. Looking forward to more testing.

Only complaint is the design. Actually quite prefer the overall look of the GT30.

So what is the deal with line bleed on the GT's?

I just looked at an ST in store and saw really bad line bleed coming of the the lettering of the opening green screen of a movie! (u know, the warning screen). I realize the store didnt have it running with an HDMI and probably had it in "out of box" picture settings, but it was aweful. I know the GT is a step up, but the fact that they are basically the same panel has me a bit scared to purchase the GT. I almost never see any on my E8000.

Can others please let me know if line bleed is a noticeable problem on their GT's? or is it more in line with typical plasma's where as you can only notice it on rare occasions?

a slight buzzing on a plasma tv usually indicates the contrast is way too high and it usually happens on a bright scene of a movie or show.My older panny , 7 years has it, but that is normal.Lowering the contrast reduces the amount of power to supply an overly vivid picture and tames the noise down. It is a common issue with plasmas and old crts and is not a defect, just the way they work.

tv odors???

may be some new interactive feature from panny. part of their vierra family of features.

Hopefully that is a characteristic of the ST and not the GT, I have not seen it on the GT50 50" that I have.

That being said, today I decided to order a VT50 55" - although it isn't currently in stock and I may have to wait a few weeks.

I am very happy with the GT50, but down the line I don't want any regrets as far as 'skimping' on some of the extras - such as 96hz playback.

I think you will be much happier with the GT50 than the E8000, as that is first TV I tried out this year.

Same for me, eventually. I have had mine a couple weeks now. I previously posted about hearing buzzing at 13 feet, but in total silence and head sideways (ear facing panel). But with any volume, facing it, I can't hear it at all. But yes, some people hear different frequencies louder than others. Nobody else in my household or visitors can hear it unless they within a foot or two, and had to be told to listen for it. I have always been sensitive to high pitch noises and so I focused on it. But even with the avr or DVR or BD player on an no volume, I can't even hear the buzz. So as stated several times, if it bothers you, replace it because that is the only thing (one) that counts.

No matter what any of us report about it, I it bothers you, then our experience and opinion won't matter. Get something you will be happy with.

And another thought, I have no IR, no strange colors, lines, or other defects on mine, so I would not want to replace it or have it repaired under warranty to end up with defects I do not have now. I just don't try hard to hear he buzz like at first. Bu again, if you hear even on low volume, you will be unhappy, so do what your heart tells you. Too dramatic? Nah, we are having love affairs with our TVs or we would not be reading and posting here. ; )

Go to, or call, the other electronics stores in your area and let them know that you're ticked because the company didn't pre-order any Panasonic plasmas for this year. Quite a few didn't and that's nationwide. It ticked me off when I went to see them in person.

strongly considering a switch to this TV from the the Samsung D8000 I just bought.

I was originally concerned about the brightness of the TV compared to an LED, but the Samsung is just too freaking bright, even in a room with a decent amount of sunlight.

From what I've read on the forum, the GT50 performs well even in rooms with sunlight, so I guess the only thing I'll miss with the Panny is a the "sexiness" factor that you get with the design of the samsungs. Oh well.

Update on the media server front. Turns out Serviio has some issues with non-full resolution .mkv files, and it won't properly scale them up even with those custom profiles. Trying out Mezzmo now, and it seems to work correctly for all files, though it does require transcoding of everything, so it'll definitely be a resource drain on the source machine. Still searching for the perfect solution!

Hockeynut, What size and model Samsung plasma do you have that has fluctuating brightness during hockey?

I have a 51'' E8000 that i am about to get a refund for because of this issue. I was going switch to the 55'' GT50 (which dont have any reported issues with brightness pops). But then i checked hockey on a 60'' E8000 at the store and didnt see any fluctuations. I am trying to figure out if for some reason only the 51'' E series Samsung's have the fluctuating brightness issue. Maybe somehow the larger size E series Samsung panels (60''/64'') are not as prone to the brightness pops?

I had 3 PN64E8000 sets (buzz issue) and they looked awesome for hockey in my opinion. Only fluctuation was clearly caused by flashes. In fact the only issue I had was the buzz and the Bruins losing. Reading the review of the GT50 is sounds like the Panny may provide a more detailed image for hockey.

Thanks, that is good to know about the line bleed.

So you are much happier with the GT over the E8000, Hmmm... What size's did/do you have? The only reason i am switching to the GT is fluctuating brightness while watching hockey on my 51''E8000 (Otherwise i love the PQ). Did you notice any issues with that on your E series? and what model/size was it?

I would love to get the VT, but it is out of my price range.

Interesting...anyone else that have/had a 60'' or 64'' E8000, please post reports on this brightness fluctuation issue.

So what TV do you currently have?

BTW, I am a B's fan as well...so dissapointing.

I am having a 60" GT50 delivered in a couple of hours to replace my 3rd PN64E8000.

I expect it to be equivalent, but different at the same time. Best Buy has been awesome with their return policy on these tv's. My ears seem to be sensitive to the buzz from these thin screens and I hope I have better luck with Panasonic - my older 50" 800U is nice and quiet.

I expect it to be equivalent, but different at the same time. Best Buy has been awesome with their return policy on these tv's. My ears seem to be sensitive to the buzz from these thin screens and I hope I have better luck with Panasonic - my older 50" 800U is nice and quiet.

looking forward to hearing about your first impressions of the GT.

Do i go 55''GT50 or 60''ST50?

I like the sound of the extra picture setting options on the GT. But from what i gather if i get the ST calibrated it will look as good if not better than the GT.

Regarding buzzing:

Has it ever been determined exactly "what" causes the buzzing ?
Is it electrical discharge of the plasma inside the tv - (and hence, can't be fixed/changed) ?
Is it an electronic component ?

I would think that if it is a component in the set that is the "source" of buzzing, that it would have been found out by now.
Also, if that were the case, I would expect that manufacturers would have taken major steps to fix/mitigate it - given all the complaints about buzzing over the years.
