I did see this in the first few hours (particularly during machine startup or quasi-calibration), but had seen posts here that this was previously documented and "normal" on both RS40s and the new rs45s, so i didn't think much about it until seeing all these recent posts.
Plus it really doesnt affect actual movies/tv at all since there is hardly ever just a stationary set of light text against dark backgrounds (except perhaps during the warnings signs pre-movies). I suppose if I ever use it for computer output that may start to be an issue...
I am going to test again tonight or tomorrow to see if lens shift has anything to do with it and will cross my fingers that, at least in my case, it is the factor.
Otherwise perhaps I will give AVS a call to see what my options are considering I am outside the 4 hour testing window. It would be sad to send this one back which has good convergence and focus and roll the dice (though probably very low odds given reports to date here) with getting a poor convergence machine.

This type of stuff is much easier to say by a person who has previously owned, tested, and calibrated a bunch (or even one) PJs in the past. For someone dipping their toes in with this PJ as their first ever, only after reading, watching, testing, etc do you get a sense of what is expected of these machiens vs what is mfg error. And in that case I would say 4 hours is no where near enough time - heck it took me personally an hour alone to shift, focus, check convergence, etc since those were the most basic things even a n00b might know to look for and so i spent a bunch of time looking at those (particularly convergence). something like white streaks that only come out when looking at certain content is not something a n00b may go straight to look for when this thing comes out of the box...
