The '11 Samsung plasmas will be unveiled at CES 6 - 9 Jan.
AFAIK, for there to be an improvement of this type, the manufacturer needs to work on it quite early in the development cycle.
By the time you met the QC rep., the '11s had, almost surely, already been finalized (or, at most, a few details to go), and about to go to production.
The only way the '11s will be have much less or no buzzing, is if they had already fixed it, by the time you talked to the QC rep.; but he wasn't authorized to tell you.
My guess is he was being honest with you, and 'they are working on a fix', thus no fix for '11; I hope I'm wrong, though.
It wouldn't surprise me, because they did nothing from the '09s to the '10s.
Almost surely, what they aren't telling you is, that they want to fix it, but only within the context of their sleek design.
