To be 100% sure i should probably take my console with me and try it out on a Samsung E8000 or E6500. Just to put my mind at ease. And i just don't get it that my friend with a E8000 claims that his tv has NO flaws at all, he says he sees no banding, no motion blur, no problems at all, perfection.
AH HELL NO! I can't believe this. I decided to put some break--in images on a USB stick and plug it into the LG. I put on a white background and a grey one...and i can't believe what i saw. Very visible vertical banding but also...a freaking GREEN TINGE...the white simply ain't 100% white, it has green stuff mixed through it, i guess that's the best explanation. These two things are the reason i eventually returned my VT30. Only difference was that i clearly saw the green tinge and vertical banding constantly in my gaming...and i'm happy to say i dont see the green stuff in my gaming now....and sometimes at certain parts in games i see banding.
If you look at your screen frenetically looking for defects, you're going to find some.
This is plasma tech, no panel is perfect.
Play and watch movies, if nothing bothers you to a certain extend from your normal viewing distance then all is fine.
If your experience is ruined by something, then you need to either exchange it or move on to another plasma.
You also need to gauge your expectations with the price, I honestly can't complain for 800$.
From my viewing distance I'm having a good experience.
PS: i experienced the green tinge too on my PZ250, especially while running the slides, those things make the defects pop up.
It mysteriously disappeared after +100 hours, that's all I know. Give a bit of time for the screen to settle.
But honestly, if you can't notice if during normal viewing then it shouldn't be an issue.
