Actually it might just be me now that I've looked at it more closely. Blacks are not exactly black and for some reason my eyes were drawn to the bottom left corner. I haven't calibrated it or anything yet either. I think it was just me.
Also, I was wondering about gaming and a few other things for anyone who can answer. I've been playing games since about the second or third day of owning it, (before that I was testing scenes on movies and HDTV channels), I have the contrast at 45 and brightness at 40, I have it on Orbiter and have run the color wash and white wash and/or TV snow between games (in lobby on MW2), after games, after periods of playing like say around 20 (even less) minutes, and when I'm not doing anything for extended periods I turn the TV off, or play TV snow and/or run the color wash and white wash for brief periods of inactivity. Am I doing everything right?
I'm at about 65 hours of use right now. When I pass the 200 hour mark, will watching movies with black bars be alright? One of the main reasons I got this TV was to finally be able to watch movies in 1080p and lots of movies have black bars. I will calibrate the TV at that time as well, is that the right time?
Another thing about black bars, will they cause the screen to become darker where the bars are being displayed? I guess this applies to HUDs in games as well, will they make the area they are displayed in brighter/darker? If I just watch other material such as HDTV channels, full screen movies, and play a variety video games will it balance it out?
Sorry for so many questions, relatively new to plasma. I'm sure I'll have more.
