I wanted to take another look at my screen tonight with the slides up because when I was first running the slides, I noticed some pink in some areas of the screen with the white slide. Now that I have about 130+ hours on it, I wanted to take another look.
I still see some areas of pink, mostly in the bottom-right corner, and along the bottom somewhat. It's very mild, but obvious to me that it is a tint of pink. I'm using CNET's settings except the color temp is set to normal and the color is dialed back a few notches. Does everybody have some degree of these pink patches, or is it hit-or-miss with these Panasonics? If there's one thing I despise with LCDs more than anything, it's the "lottery" where every panel has different flashlighting, clouding, etc. - is it the same with these? Does everyone get some amount of discoloration?
Also, I noticed on the dark grey slide, from the the line I see on the right of the screen to the edge, that slice of screen appears to be darker than the rest of the screen. The rest of the screen looks very uniform overall with the grey slide, but from the right of the line outward - about 2 inches total, it appears as a 2" thick strip that seems a bit darker. It's hard to miss to my eyes. I don't know if it's an illusion caused by the grey color and the line that together makes the whole "strip" appear darker, or if it's really darker. Very strange.
This mild pink discoloration, and the line, make me a bit nervous. I know its been said many times in here, that there's no perfect set. But is it really this common to find discolorations? And the line really baffles me. It just looks like it shouldn't be there.
Also noticing lately the line bleed on this set. It's pretty bad. I don't remember how it looked on the D7000 but I'm really noticing it on this set. Just bringing up my on-screen cable guide makes it very obvious, with all the channel grids. I get tons of strips across the screen where the grids are laid out.
Don't take it the wrong way - I'm still enjoying the set very much. But I hate to think I have a set with some imperfections that others do not have.
