I had a D7000, which I was happy with. It didn't buzz and had no IR whatsoever. It broke due to an accident.
I replaced it with an E7000. It buzzed and I could hear it from 15 feet away. I exchanged it and got another that buzzes the same. The Samsung tech came out and said it was normal.
Is this true? Do they all buzz, or should I keep exchanging until I hopefully get a quiet one? I don't know how many that will take or if quiet ones even exist.
I've never heard a completely silent plasma. However I've never noticed buzzing on a plasma while there was any audio coming from it.
I've never heard a completely silent fridge either, but that's a different issue.
Yes. All Plasmas buzz. I think it comes down to setup, environment and sensitivity as to how much you hear it.
But I'm no expert.
No. I've had 4 different E8000 panels. Other than the normal electric panel "hum" (barely audible in a silent room) NONE has been a buzzer. FWIW all my non-buzzers have been wall mounted.
I hope you're right. Mine came with a dead pixel, so Samsung is going to be changing out the panel. I wonder if the new panel installation will fix the buzz. I sure hope so.
The Samsung tech told me the buzz is normal and I should expect the new panel to sound the same.
