You may get a non-streaking buzzy plasma. My pro-150fd is in a warehouse ready to be delivered this week. I told the trucking Co. to deliver it on 1/4/08. reasons: are I'm not ready to mount it yet. I have to make a decision on furniture height and center channel height before installing the mount. plus I feel uncomfortable leaving the set boxed in my house this time of year. makes for an easier burglary target. But I'd rather get it here and plug it in to see if it buzzes and is streaky. You know what? We pay $6k+ for this set and we're talking about streaks and buzzes. that sucks!!!!!! Apparently this technology is not perfected yet even at 8th generation. I feel like telling the trucking co. to send it back and get my money back!!Regards...
I don't know what to suggest, but I just posted above how my streaking is
pretty hard to detect and the buzzing is no big deal anymore. I can tell you
that no TV is perfect, though. My friend picked up his brand new Sony XBR5
and he isn't happy with it, especially the blacks. I've been through enough
Sharp LCD's to know they aren't perfect either. The new d64's, however, are
much better as they apparently don't have the banding issues.
However... this TV's picture is still great, even with these flaws. You'd have
to stare at the streaky spots to notice them, and it doesn't happen often
anyhow (at least for me). Keep in mind I spent $8K Canadian, so if anyone
is going to be upset, it would be me as I paid a lot... and yet, I'm happy. I
can dwell on the littlest things, but you know, the TV is awesome regardless.
If you have a buzz, it'll bug you for the first month or 2, but you'll get used
to it and accept the nice picture. Don't worry about our streaky talk as we
are generally getting a bit meticulous. I've already mentioned I only see the
streaks because I'm sitting too close. If you sit close to a plasma, heck,
you'll see the noise and pulsations.
Good luck with your TV, though. I hope it's perfect, nonetheless.
