I do not know, maybe you did not notice it before.
I can tell you that I noticed it from get go, and not only that but I can see flickering on any plasma, Panasonic,Samsung, you name it.
Put the white slide on or change adv. settings to 48Hz and you are going to see flickering all the time.
Here is a little bit of research for you:http://www.avforums.com/forums/plasm...n-g10-x10.htmlhttp://www.avforums.com/forums/plasm...c-flicker.html
Apparently according to the guy who started that thread people that are nearsighted(I am the "lucky" one too) notice it more, so maybe you should see eye specialist.
EDIT: I forgot the most important thing- if they ramp up refreshing rate from 60Hz to 96,120 or at least 72Hz flickering would be gone.

Oh well I've got white blotches about the size of $1 coins that show up when watching hockey as well in the middle of the screen too.
This is what pisses me off. They should not be concerned become the should KNOW that their plasma TV's flickers. It just shows how customer service does not know s... about what engineering department produce.
Yes, flickering is "normal" although it should not be.
Funny thing that you mentioned "white blotches about the size of $1 coins", because I have four of them in the middle line of my screen.
Oh, well, economy situation and quality(or lack of it) does really go hand in hand.
