Well, the time has come my friends! I started this thread when I first decided to get the 70" LED. Well, after 2 sets, I've decided to return it and go with the Plasma. The clouding issues on both sets were just too much. Maybe not an issue to some but It was very noticable to me. Good luck if you guys are looking for an LED but I think they need to address and fix this backlight issue or they will be seeing many more returns. Now, anyone need some 3D glasses? Thankfully, the new Plasma comes with them out of the box. Sharp should have done this as well but that's another topic!
