Hey guys,

I didn't want to hijack the vt60 forum for this (I asked once but didn't want to aggravate anyone).

I'm in Parker, CO. Just south of Denver. I'm at 5700 feet. I just call it 6000 to be safe lol.

I just ordered a Panasonic 55 VT60. This will be my first plasma. Will I have any issues at this height? Buzzing etc?

I read somewhere the 2012 models were rated 9100 but can't confirm whether that's true or not.

Thanks for your help!!!!

do have the chance to simply view them in stores? if the manufacturer says 6000ft is fine, i think anything else would be speculation. if the tv works at the store it should work at your home.
