Thanks, I guess the stuff I kept finding was for UK models or last years set...
Looks like I've got just about 61 hours on the display and shockingly IR is almost nonexistent already! I experienced a little bit the first two or three days that would happen REALLY fast, like if I left a menu screen up on netflix for one or two minutes. It would go away with the white bar running for about four or five minutes though. But now that I've got cable connected I've noticed ZERO IR from network logos even after watching the same channel for about two or three hours at a time with a big stupid logo. I hope this is a good sign of the panel aging well. Blacks looks AMAZING so I can't picture them getting much better but if they do that'll be even more awesome!
Buzz is kind of a pain on a bright or white screen when the TV's volume (using the TV speakers) is probably set at 10 or lower, It basically sounds like a bad audio source kind of buzz. I guess this is normal and I don't plan on requesting a swap or service. The only time I really notice it is when watching past 10pm or so at night when I turn the volume really low to not bug anyone sleeping in the house. (the TV is in a bed room down stairs and a bed room is right above me too)
