In regards to this buzzing sound, either I'm deaf (I lost my hearing the day I got married) or there is no buzzing sound. I'm using the TV speakers and maybe this buzzing sound stems from those people who are amplifying their audio through external speakers. Could be feedback or just bad cables/ connections. The only drawback I have about this TV is all the connections are on the far left edge of the TV panel, not the rear. Since all my peripherals are to the right of the TV I had to purchase longer cables.Not a big deal though I've seen people give bad ratings for reasons like this. Just because they're technically-challenged is no reason to give a TV a bad review.
A few other things...
For the wireless USB adapter you do not need to use a Samsung brand network adapter. My Linksys wireless-N (WUSB600N model) works with this TV. Be careful in setting up your wireless network adapter. If you use a NON Samsung adapter DO NOT enable the 'Samsung Wireless Link" in the network settings menu. I accidentally enabled this setting and, for some reason, could not disable it after it recognized the Linksys Adapter. Apparently, this is a software glitch that may be corrected in a future firmware upgrade. I had a "painless" chat session with a samsung representative and the only way to correct the problem is to re-set the TV back to it's original manufacturer settings. You won't find these instructions in the Owners Manual. If you ever need to do this, hold down the "Exit" button for 20 seconds while pointing it at the TV.
Finally.....the 3D. This TV upconverts any 2D broadcast into 3D simply by pressing the "3D" button. This is simulated 3D, not true 3D, but there is a noticeable dimensional effect. It's nice but it's more of a novelty and I find that I'm not reaching for those 3D glasses as often as I used to.
The sound is OK, but It will be hooked up to my HT system shortly.
I hear NO buzz whatsoever, that seemed to be a complaint for some people!
We watched The Blindside and Despicable Me on Bluray and it was excellent! The skin tones (Blindside) were right on! I used the calibration settings from [...]).
The calibration settings say to set the picture mode to "CAL-DAY", which exists for the 8000 series, not for 7000. There is a way to switch to the 8000 menu, but I read that is risky and could cause problems. So, I switched my picture mode to "Movie" and then proceeded with the rest of the settings.
The menu took a little getting use to, but I expected that.
I will NEVER use 3D, I think it is a totally useless!! I wish the industry would put all the 3D effort into higher resolution technology instead. In a few years consumers will be complaining about eye strain issues...especially the youth.
Anyway, I would recommend this TV for sure, if you really care about getting the best/most for your money!
For the first year or so the TV was OK - I mean, it's just a TV, right? You expect to turn it on, watch whatever it is you want to watch, turn it off, repeat for several years. Correct? Well, not so fast.
Shortly after the warranty expired, the TV started to have an occasional problem with image - deep black started to display as maroon, so dark scenes would appear to be covered in blood. No big deal - it happened once in a while, and turning the TV off and back on would make the problem go away, so I didn't make much of it. Except that over time the problem got worse, and the old trick of turning the TV off stopped working.
At this point I contacted tech support to complain about the issue, and they directed me to a an authorized repair shop. I called them, and they wanted to charge me $250 just for the visit, and fixing the issue would cost anywhere between $500 and $1,200. In other words, it could cost me almost as much as a new TV. I contacted Samsung again to see if they would be willing to cover at least the cost of the visit, but no luck.
After some Google research, I tinkered with the image settings, and this helped reduce the problem. Unfortunately it was just a matter of time before the problem started to happen again, getting worse over time. I contacted Samsung through their Facebook support page, they emailed me a few questions, and then told me the same story: out of warranty, contact an authorized repair shop. I told them about my past experience, and tried to reason with them to arrive to some reasonable compromise, but after numerous email exchanges I asked to be directed to the person's supervisor. The reply I got back was that she was the supervisor, so at this point, I'm completely out of luck.
There are basically two things I can do at this point: 1) Never buy Samsung again; and 2) Write this review, so other people have fair warning.
