Might be worth a shot but 60 inch panels seemed prone to buzzing which could explain why they were returned. But Amazon will take it back if you aren't satisfied so nothing but time would be wasted.

Living room: Sony 60NX720, Yamaha RX-V673, NHT Super One/Zero w/Ten Sub, Panasonic BDT230.
Current Man Cave: Samsung PN51F8500, Vizio S4251w-B4, Sony BDP-S5100, Darbee Darblet.
Future Man Cave: Sony VPL-HW40ES, Monoprice 106" Multi-Format Fixed Frame (Never again!).
Displays calibrated with HCFR, i1DisplayPro, and Colormunki Photo.

I'm debating it. I actually have one already in another room that I never had the buzzing issue.

Well, if you buy it from Amazon themselves (Amazon WarehouseDeals), and not one of the third party Amazon Marketplace sellers, then if there's anything about the TV you don't like, you can send it back, no questions asked, shipping pre-paid, and opt for a refund or a replacement.

I guess another option is the LG 55" curved OLED. They are only $2500 right now. Great contrast. Color isn't 100% accurate though.

Not really.

Personally, speaking only for myself, I'd be reluctant to take a chance on any OLED these days.


It seems too much like OLED is still in "beta test". Too many suspected, but not proven or dis-proven issues, with things like panel life, uneven pixel aging (blue), etc.

Not to mention that all the OLED panels are 4K, which is still in it's own "beta-test", with some of the standards still to be nailed down, etc.


But that's just me...

I purchased a floor model PN64F8500 from BB 2 months ago. I used MUTE 1 8 2 PWR and saw 640 (minutes, I presume). Today, I tried MUTE 7 3 7 and the MRT WAS 5200. Can anyone explain the difference? The set was mfg'd Feb, 2013. And, I didn't gave it delivered and installed until May 1.
I contacted Samsung and they claim there is no way to know powered hours. So, are these key sequences real or just ....?

Also, the WI FI keeps dropping when other devices in the same room are good (PCs, iPad).

That would be 5200 hours on the panel which is about right for a display model.
