I apologize for asking this question but I've tried to get an answer in two other posts and evidently, my wording was too vague to elicit the answer. I'm unable to determine from my searches if the Sharp, Sony, and Samsung 768p models have the same banding and clouding issues as the 1080p sets. Virtually all the threads are about the newer 1080p models. Or as some have suggested, be safe and go plasma. If anyone could comment on the LCD's, I'd be most appreciative.
