I own a B series Sammy(B650), so for what its worth, the buzz on my set definately dropped a ton between 300-700-ish hours. It tends to be different depending on the cell light setting, and strangely(and happily), its at its lowest and nearly non-existant at cell light 10(all the way up, i think cell light 20 on the 2010 models). At times, I feel like I can hear a slight buzz, so I'll mute the sound, then realize the sound is coming from my overheard ceiling fan. So I'll turn the fan off, and barely hear anything, even at dead center(10-12 ft away).
Again, take it for what its worth. Its a 2009 model, and I actually exchanged a pretty loud (in any part of the room) B560 for it. If you have a somewhat directional buzz that isnt absolutely overwhelming, you might be in for a nice surprise a few hundred hours in. I'm as picky and anal as they come when it comes to my displays, and i think I'm finally at the point where its a non-issue.
