I believe the comment I was referring to is in this thread.

A seller has one new ZT60 left on Amazon he has up for $6,500.

Pretty ridiculous. I'll bet he gets some person with the disposable income to buy it.

That's stunt pricing. I'd be surprised if anyone bought it. IMO it's not even a very good value at the $4,100 MSRP.

I game with an xbox 360 using the THX cinema mode, contrast at 50 (down from factory default 60). This is the mode I watch everything in because it is the most color accurate to my eye. I do get some IR, but it is not visible with normal content (just on solid color images). It goes away after a few hours of non-game content. If I ever get a cal, I'll use the pro mode and enable pixel orbiter. In the meantime I reduce HUDs when I can: Some games (eg. Diablo III) allow you to dim or control HUD opacity. Other games (eg. Borderlands II) allow you to shift the HUD around somewhat. So in that case I do a manual pixel orbiter by shifting the HUD every couple hours of play.

The key to dealing with IR is varied content. My kids watch a lot of cartoons, which gets rid of my gaming IR. But if IR freaks you out, gaming on the ZT may not be a good idea for you.

I've not experience permanent burn-in. But I only game 2-3 hours at a time.

Don't forget to engage game mode, which cuts down your input lag. Have fun! Awesome TV. Love gaming on it.
