Every TV set on the market "has issues." IMO, you just have to pick a set and "live with it" without expecting it to be perfect. Reading these forums, some define "research" as buying 3-4 TVs and using them all in home with the intention of returning all but one, which I think is wrong and taking advantage of retailers, be they B&M or online. If a TV has legitimate issues, or you find a flaw is too hard for you to live with, then I think by all means it should be returned. What I find ludicrous is the threads where people swap out 3+ of the same model to avoid issues that are pretty much inherent to a particular TV or technology, like trying to swap out Samsung plasma after Samsung plasma to find a "good" one that doesn't buzz or trying to find an edge LED that doesn't flashlight. After trying out the same set multiple times, I think you should take a hint and try something else.
