Next, ask yourself how you might magine your hearing has been affected by your genetics - not to mention various events and occupations in your life.
Then, accept the fact that there is a SEVERE buzzing problem with these panels. Also, recognize that this is not a conventional low frequency buzz that everyone can hear. This is an obnoxious, HIGH FREQUENCY hash of noise which includes a buzz, and it is projected in a very directional manner from the large glass panel.
This is no longer a question of luck, there have been numerous reports of repeat buzzers from those who are sentivitve to it. Your denial is quite simply rude.
Not being rude, just being real.
I think many of you just don't understand business, or the electronics business model and the slim margins of profit that come with it.
I read lots of us talking about the lovely Kuro and wishing for Pioneer to return to plasma making. Well, why do you think they left? Margins were thin and plasmas have more native issues than LCD. Plus, the mighty Kuro would still cost about $5K today. Most of us scream if our sets list for more than $2300!
Like I said, something's got to give. Either more companies will leave plasma tech, or Amazon will stop selling them or change its policy; it's that simple.
And I stated that my TV buzzes too, but more like florescent lights buzz which my sound system easily drowns out. I've also noticed that Cell Light and Brightness when higher, or bright scenes emit more buzz.
Yes, there are lemon sets out there, but I don't think it is at Ford Explorer 1999 recall levels either.
The push and expectation of the perfect flawless set is unrealistic. My main point was to lay off of Amazon. Without them, we'd still be stuck in the high priced days of crappy Circuit City and local sales taxes. My "buzzer" plasma from Amazon/Huppins saved me over $400 of what brick and mortar stores were charging at the time. I got a sweet deal on an awesome set that is not perfect.
AvidHiker, if you can't deal with the reality of business, then there is much more for you to get offended by in the future.
I bet you just love Wall Street huh? :-)
