I haven't read through this thread so forgive my ignorance, but are these blobs generally obvious or more visible with certain content? What's a good way to check for them?
I have an April 2012 build VT50, so it's presumably from a very early run of the sets, I do get some mild buzzing but would like to identify any issues sooner rather than later so I can replace with another plasma. I'm still covered by Geek Squad for the next three years or so.
