I noticed that on 55GT50 it is quite good, almost perfect but local stores do not have 65GT50 to see only 65VT50 and VT50 is not great in the screen uniformity department, in fact I will go as far to say that 60U54 at Sam's has more uniformity than VT50. I am coming from Elite thread to hear battling screen uniformity on Elite, I got aware that all screens have it, moderate grey DSE does not bother me, bands on the right side of VT50 that I saw on October 2012 VT50 was just distracting. How are your GTs or even STs in this department?
I purchased a 65GT50 from Amazon, received it on Feb 7th. It was a v2 set. Tomorrow I am receiving a replacement due to buzzing. Uniformity is excellent. Everything about the set is excellent (forget the fact that I happen to be one who sees the plasma "rainbow" effect). I see no DSE. Coming from an LCD, this picture is a dream.
The buzzing on my set is very minor. Definately not related to loose screws or some such. It happens on bright scenes, and I can hear it from 14' (seating) over quite scenes, or scenes with dialog an no other sound. In fact, I can hear it at ~18' (standing behind my seating area). My wife cannot hear it. I have much more sensitive hearing than most people, so I don't know if what I'm hearing is normal for most people (because they are less ensitive to these types of noises), or if it seriously is noisy compared to other 65GT50 TVs. I will know tomorrow if the new set is better than my current set.
Either way, I could probably get used to the buzzing on my current set, but I just have to know if it could be better. Someone mentioned that their clock made more noise than their TV. This is true in my case. I have a ticking clock in the room, but never hear it because I've gotten used to it. When I take the time to focus on the clock, it is definately louder than the buzz.
