Well, #3 was delivered today. Much to my disappointment, it has the same screen problem as the previous two. Actually, it's worse. Both the first two had the spots (two each) along the top of the screen. This one has one at the top middle and two along the bottom of the screen.
To make matters worse, and to make me feel even more terrible, this set also has some geometry problems. The first two sets had almost perfect geometry right out of the box. This one, when you look at the lines in manual convergence mode, has some bowed lines near the edges. And, they also have some green poking out from under the white convergence lines. Also, this set seems to have a bit of ghosting (which the other two did not), but I haven't had a chance to look at it for very long to evaluate that potential problem.
A tech. is scheduled for next Thur. to come and assess the problem(s).
How much he'll be able to do is unknown at this time.
It's really disheartening to research a bunch of products, decide which one you think best meets your needs and has the best picture/feature set and then have this happen. I hear so many glowing reviews about this set. Maybe it's just been terrible luck on my part. I'm seriously thinking of scrapping the whole idea of going with this set and buying the Sony 57WV700.
Anybody have any suggestions?
