Thanks for the pics man. You have some minor clouding on the right side and towards the bottom right hand corner in the first couple pictures, but I don't notice any in your last two. Overall, blacks look excellent even from your camera and clouding isn't anywhere near I thought it'd be. At this point, I'm much more concerned with the pixel issue, especially since other owners (like ravens above) are reporting similar problems on their 8 series. I'm starting to wonder if the process of housing all the components into a slimmer bezel has anything to do with it... i.e. Are pixels more likely to be rubbing against the screen, as everything is being forced into a smaller area?
