With two sheets of glass and an air gap, it's possible for some people to notice the image on both glass surfaces if they are sitting off angle to the set's sweet spot.
I was under the impression that both Panasonic and Samsung started bonding the plasma panel with the outer sheet of glass several years ago on all models. My 60F5300 has no air gap and no double images from the side. LG still uses dual pane with an air gap on their plasmas.
My 5 year old Panasonic 50S1 has an air gap, and the picture on the Samsung looks much clearer because of this.
