I absolutely agree regarding the break-in period. My 9300 changed character massively over the first 300/500 hours. Only rarely do I even see the dreaded 'vignetting' at near black and usually only...

I am now about one year into owning and enjoying my 9300. (paid the full 3500 back then) I can honestly say I will NEVER go back to LCD. I do have the upgrade urge already, but am waiting for an LG...

That is exactly what I did and have programmed a custom "toggle" button on my Harmony One for all activities that involve the 9300. Easy on/off for lengthy pauses.

I am sure! After over 3 thousand hours of use, I could never go back to any type of LCD again. This OLED has spoiled me rotten.

I have pink tint on both sides with a greenish tint in the center. It is pretty much only noticeable on B&W content. Almost 2000 hours of use has lessened it greatly, along with a firmware from a...
