I wonder if the tv's that have loud buzzing actually have a brighter screen? When I made adjustments on my Pioneer 5020, and went into service menu to increase ABL, the buzzing increased dramatically, and so did the brightness of the screen.

RIP Robin Williams. Thanks for the laughter.

There are times my f8500 emits an audible buzzing noise, but very infrequently, and it's easily covered up when it does happen. The Panasonic is basically silent. That's the end of my story.
yeah, I'm not really sure how this ended up being a you vs me thing, I guess you just replied before anybody else...


there's nothing wrong with discussing the buzz. and there's nothing wrong with you stating your f8500 has a more noticeable buzz than your panny. that's useful info.


my post was towards the ppl saying their plasma(any plasma) had ZERO buzz. this isn't really possible, and I'd rather hear from ppl who have the ability to hear the buzz. ie, like what you said in your last post about the panny being quieter than the Samsung, that's useful.


what isn't useful is somebody who can't hear the buzz saying there is no buzz. so, imo, if you can't defect buzz under any circumstance, you are not 'qualified' to comment on it. you should be able to hear it if you try. 'basically silent' is different than silent, and that statement makes me believe the Panasonic is very quiet, as opposed to making me question your hearing.

Just play it safe and purchase from a retailer that accepts easy returns/exchanges. And don't feel guilty about doing it. If the F8500's in a retailer's showroom barely make any audible noise, you should expect the same w/ your purchase.

White Glove Delivery?

Well, after my VT30 died in a lightning storm, my home owner's insurance helped me purchase the 64" F8500! Can't wait to get it!!!

I do have a question about the white glove delivery that I purchased with the TV. I was told that the drivers will unpack the unit and plug it up to make sure it is working properly. However, the white glove delivery states it does not include assembly or installation. Assembly, as I would guess, include putting the stand on the unit. So, if the unit does not have a stand attached, how are they going to check to see if the panel works properly? Have it flat on the floor and plug it in? Am I missing something???

All plasmas (at least the ones I have purchased) come in the box standing up. The packing holds them in place. The delivery people just take top off the box leaving the plasma standing erect. They plug it in the wall, turn it on and that's it. If the screen is in tact (meaning no cracks and powers up) and the cabinet shows no damage they ask you to sign and they leave out.

One other thing, white glove delivery does not include the delivery people giving you the extra time to plug up your cable or DirecTV to view a picture.
