This is not usual banding seen in a gradient pattern. This is a 4-5" strip that is a darker on the side of the screen but only with certain backgrounds.
The set also has a flicker issue in the center of the screen, with certain patterns or photos, Ive seen it on VGA and component, will test others.
Issues are only seen if very specific patterns or photos are on the screen, but once you see it you cant miss it again. The flicker concerns me more, as I like to look at photos on the set.
Its not something I'd return the set for, but I dont think exchanging will help, it seems related to the system software.
HDTV sources look amazing...
