First post, but long time lurker. I got my 60VT60 last week, and you can count me as yet another one that's having fan noise issues. I've had various plasmas since 2006, but never had one with this much noise. It's not the typical buzz that comes with plasmas...that's there, but not a problem. The issue is an absurdly loud fan that can be clearly heard during any drops in dialogue or low volume situations while sitting 12 feet away on my couch. It's coming from the fan on the upper right hand side (if facing the front of the panel)....if you cover it, the sound is greatly diminished. The other fan seems fine. I've had three other people come over and all remark on the noise. The VT60 is replacing an 18-month old Samsung plasma that was also 60" and mounted in the same spot -- it was quiet as could be.
Totally disappointing...love everything about the set, but this is unbearable. It's going back....just debating whether I want to exchange it for another VT60 in hopes that the next one won't be so loud, or go in a different direction all together.
