I watched a bit of espn and it took a few days for the IR to disappear. I played a game of Madden and it took days for the IR to completely fade. That was basically a 30 minute game. Those things along with other IR issues made me rethink my purchase and consequently I moved on. I loved the set picture wise. The IR issues are annoying though. I have been a plasma only guy for over 5 years but the VT turned me off because of these IR issues.
My friend also has a VT with the same problems. Some people can deal with it but it still blows my mind that my old 2008 Pioneer had no IR issues but a 2013 new tech Panasonic still can't manage to deal with IR the correct way. What exactly was pioneer doing to void out any IR at all and why didn't Panasonic buy this tech? Who knows.
Well I know some people have experienced IR with their Panasonic models but I can tell you the opposite, I watch Football, Soccer, Hockey all weekend long and haven't experienced any IR on my GT50. I know I'm not the only one.
