Interestingly I saw two Samsung mid-priced side lit LED TV's both 46" and they did not have this issue.
Charles, don't judge the TV's in the store, they are all running in Dynamic mode, with the backlight and other settings maxed out. Also, to the point, on that link above, look for the title "Edge-lit with LED's all around: "
You'll see the following picture;http://cdn.asia.cnet.com/i/r/2011/tv/62213336/uniformity5_sc.jpg
Nobody should ever have their set cranked up to the showroom settings, they are not at all represented of what you'll get at home, once the set is setup and calibrated correct, very little of this will show.

What are you connecting to? Allshare on a computer?
If yes, install and use PS3 Media Server, it's much better of a program for this, simply hit the source button, and pick it.

Now i miss my first set, it had zero dead pixels.
My panel is flawless, I did have one slight flashlight from the top right corner, but with my calibration settings posted above combined with the ECO sensor, it's not visable.
There is no V coming from anywhere near the Samsung Logo, I have it diabled when then TV is on, only turning on when it's in standby mode.
