However, I do feel that it hinders well-produced HD content. This is instantaneously noticeable to me along with the difference in driving methodology. The dithering presented by Panasonics is more noticeable to me at a comfortable viewing distance than the rigid "noisy" picture of the Pioneers while motion handling exhibits a persistent "stutter" on the Panasonics that fatigues my eyes. (yes, even on the ZT/VT... and no, this isn't with any interpolation activated and has been my experience with Panasonic's product line for years)
You don't have to live with the issues you are seeing if you have a VT60 (don't know about the ST60). The issues you have are very easily fixed by adjusting your Contrast and Sharpness settings (lowering). Also turn off or lower all picture enhancements.
I sold my 9G 141 Kuro for $1000 about a year ago. My 141 had the Blue issue and that's why I sold it, plus I wanted 3D.
So what is the point of buying a Used 60" 151 9G Kuro for anywhere near $2000, when for about $700 + tax more you can get a brand new Panasonic 65VT60 without the Red or Blue tint issues.
Plus you don't have to pick up (about 130 lbs) the 151 Kuro, you get the 65" VT60 delivered. Have at-least a 15 day window you can get your money back, full 1 year warranty, bigger screen size, better PQ, internet streaming/surfing, great 3D PQ with two sets of 3D glasses, less problem with IR and the list goes on.
If your budget is under $2000 then I would suggest you take a very close look at the Panasonic 60"VT60 (same size as the Kuro 151), or even the 65ST60. In the case of the 9G Kuro or the VT/ST 60 series, screen size does make a nice difference, bigger is better,
