let say you are watching a movie, either full screen or with black bars in cinema mode with led dynamic control to standard. Are you still seeing this on your set? If so, then their might be an issue with assembly after all. If this is similar physically to flashlighting (miss assembly, different pressure being applied on the panel, it may be possible that with time, the effect may diminish with time. I understand that it's a chance you are taking and an expansive TV so I would understand someone not willing to take it. What I would say is that if its small enough, to the point that it's only visible in specific situation, and that with regular content being display, it's not visible, then you may consider the possibility that the issue will improve with time. That's what happen with my flashlighting problem on my HX850.
The hardest part with a new TV is trying not to focus on the possible flaws. 3 years ago I went to shop for a TV and after trying 6 different TVs, all of which had different flaws, I gave up. Last year, I tried again to find a good TV, I went through 3 tvs before settling down on the HX850. I came to the realization that there are just no perfect TV out there. Manufacturing quality is not what it used to be and most companies transfered production from Japan to Mexico where it's cheaper to produce but introduce manufacturing defects. The HX850 was the best set I could get my hands on last year, I love it. The only thing I had issue with was the flashlighting in both lower corner. I went through 3 different TV, at one point, I physically had 3 HX850 at home, I decided to pick the best one and return the other 2.
You know what? I can't even see those problems anymore. I think part of it is that I don't look for them anymore and just enjoy the great picture and content. The other part is as the panel aged, through warming up for hours of uses, it seems that the clouding and espicially the flashlighting issues have lessen with them to the point when even what I look for it, it's hard to see. I even was able to bump up my backlit by a few spots and still can't see the issue my set used to have.
My only remaining regret about my hx850 is that I didn't listen to all those advices I was given about the fact I should have went bigger than what I wanted. I got a 46" and now wish I had went with the 55". On the other hand, my 46" had no banding issues which seems a bit more common on the 55" and up. That's part of the reason I'm looking into the w900a, as a possible upgrade to my hx850 but bigger.
