I would pull the trigger on the pn64 but this buzzing problem and the fluctuating brightness makes me nervous Thanks everyone for your updates.

The tech just took a look at my set and said that the buzz was within spec, and there's nothing he could do. The official line is that you should be seated 10 ft away with the TV volume at level 20, and if they can still hear the buzz then, it's out of spec and they'll attempt a repair. The issue I have is that the buzz is not consistent, so it could be not present or not noticeable at volume, then a quiet scene hits and the buzz spikes. There's no way you could miss it, you'd have to be deaf.
Anyway I'm bummed. Watched a bunch of 1080p content this weekend that looked absolutely amazing, but this TV has to go back. I'd get a replacement but there's no guarantee that the buzzing won't be there, and I don't want to play the tv lottery, especially with an online retailer. I guess I'm going to get a LCD that I know is buzz free, but I haven't seen any models that really do it for me. Oh well!
