In my brief ownership of 2 months of the st50, I have noticed line bleed more times than I did in my 2 year ownership of my Panasonic G25. As a a matter of fact I dont even remember one time where I noticed line bleed, on my older plasma, on normal content whereas the same cant be said for the st50. I am not sure if something is wrong with my st50 or if the g25 was just exceptionally well at not exhibiting line bleed.
One instance where the line bleed struck out to me the most was on episode 17 of season 7 on the tv show The Office. At around the 18 minute mark you see Steve Carrel sitting in front of window blinds and you can see the blinds bleeding through his face causing a shadow like line going across his face. It seems more pronounced as his face moves. I have noticed if the object causing line bleed happens to be moving, line bleed is more pronounced. I have seen line bleed on various different kinds of material on commercials from bright text on a solid color background to peoples eyes and lips causing line bleed onto a solid dark background. I dont know if all this is normal for this years panasonic's but i know for sure my 2010 panasonic did not exhibit line bleed to this extent at all.
Is anyone else with this years panasonic plasmas also having this problem?
