From what I've read and heard, the buzzing issue is more of a factor with the larger sets. My 111FD (50") has never
buzzed, even when I've put my ear to it.
As for "dirty screen" effect, I didn't see that on my display, either. I did see it on a couple of non-elites in a store which weren't calibrated in any way, just out-of-the-box settings. Whites were grayish, but the LCDs nearby were painfully washed out on those same whites, and with less detail.
