Still putting up with my C7000 buzzer...why??? because....
1. PQ is pretty amazing. I'm not a plasma fanboy, but I know that i always prefer the natural look of plasma and I've never really seen a LCD/LED that was pleasing to my eyes.
2. my alternatives aren't great.... a) return tv and roll the old Mits RPTV back in from the garage. yuck! b) return and get a Panasonic VT25, but that will be more $$$ c) return and get LCD/LED.
I did go to Magnolia store late the other night trying to find other options and also listen for buzz. They had UN58C8000 LED right next to PN638000 playing the same HD loop. So it was a good way to compare. The LED did look pretty good i must say, although too bright and I never like the 240hz, plus the viewing angle was if-y. But still the Plasma looked better to me. And this PN63C8000 had NO buzz I could detect in front of the screen and the store was pretty quiet near closing time. only faint buzz behind the set.
The PQ on the plasma is what is most important...and I feel I have that. unfortunately it comes with buzz
All that said...I did call Amazon to exchange this set for another PN58C7000...I feel my buzz has to be 9 out of 10 on scale of loudness, can't get louder (I hope). And there are a couple posts of people with buzz that got a seemingly better set after exchange. But I know that is a total crap shoot. the exchange may be no better, but worth a shot.
now what Amazon said is this TV is on backorder for 4-6 weeks. So what I'm hoping is they are out of production cycle and the D7000 comes out and they send me that as replacement. I know a very very long shot!! oh well. will see what happens.
