I don't hear any buzzing from the set. I too will see how it stacks up in the next few weeks before I make my final decision over the ST60. Would have really liked the built in camera but I guess its not a big deal.
On a side note I called panny CS and was informed that the software for Viera Connect will be able to upgraded to the 2013 platform on the 2012 GT50 with Swipe and Share and MY Home Screen but I am not sure if I believe them. Also I have done some gaming on the GT, not much but was informed by panny that it is OK to do. Ran the set in Standard mode for the first week and now running Cinema mode. Was also told to run the wipe/cleaner program once a week. The BB salesman has a VT30 for 1 1/2 years now and does not have any issues with his TV. Confirmed that with Panny also and they said it was a good thing to do. Not sure of that either but I am new to the Big Screen HD TV arena.
Best of luck with your GT50..........hope you love it as much as I do!!!
thanks I got it today and had it on for about 10 hours, starting to break it in. I watched some ESPN and some a little IR after watching it for 15 mins, but I ran the wipe then watched anohter show, and its already gone.
I could only see the IR when running the wipe and not on normal viewing. I will run the wipe for a few minutes after I watch anything with a ticker.
I also bought toystory on bluray to help with any pesky IR. The TV does look good, I like it so far. I will see how it does over the next month, and see if I return it or not based on IR.
I do hear a little buzzing but only when really bright (almost white) scene is on, and that is only when its on mute. I cant hear any buzzing when I have my sound on.
