Seems to be only online stores advertising but none say in stock....have Panasonic delivered any yet I wonder?
i would expect to have seen user reviews buy now.....or am I missing something?
I was thinking the same thing about an hour ago! Could really do with some pictures too.

The buzzing seems to be back:
The buzzing reported is from the power supply, not the screen itself. It's different.

Plasma buzzing is dependent on the brightness of the picture.... & tends to get worse when rendering brighter images. What that person is experiencing is a buzz coming from the power plug, which can happen with any electrical appliance when not properly earthed.
This is what he has stated:
"my 42' gt50 was perfectly acceptable i could only ever hear it buzz on very bright backgrounds with the sound on mute, so i think you should get a better panel, although my 50' is buzzing like mad on everything so annoying!"
"Not all positves though, my screen has a distinct buzz from the power supply."
Think I got it. Cheers.
So one has and one had a GT50.....
not wildly available then.
That person on AV forums bought the 42-inch GT60 for €1300 (not £)..... So it appears he / she lives outside the UK.
Presumably the poster isn't referring to a wall socket or mains cable. The buzz must therefore be emanating from the TV.
The TV draws more power when displaying bright images and it's the capacitor (or capacitors) that buzz. These capacitors are part of the TV's internal power circuitry.
As I understand it, the source of the buzz here is no different from any other plasma; and the "power supply" comment is redundant. Internal power circuitry is always the cause of plasma buzz. In other words, the poster must be describing normal plasma buzzing.

Can you answer the big question, VT65 or GT60? What do you think.
About time Joe!
could do me/us a favour and if not covered in the review (Asuming that's what you meant and your not just on a wind up!) and post an opinion on how much better than a GT50 and the VT65 it is? And news on a release date?
theres a few of us who would really like the advice so we can choose what to do with our GT50's......which may be worth keeping as its now half price....
