Hard to tell what the defect is. Could be IR or burn in from subtitles or text of some sort. Panel damage like that probably can't be fixed, only be replaced. And since they stopped making these...

If the "black" part of the dress really is black, it must be LCD. As far as the blue goes, it looks like they calibrated it on the "Cool 2" setting.

Interesting! Panel variance is common with all manufacturers, but not to that degree. Further (anecdotal) evidence to my point that while OLED tech is better, the benefit is only theoretical when...

The 60" stand and 65" stands should have the same connections--hex screws if I recall correctly--but given how wobbly the stand is, I definitely wouldn't put a 65" TV on a stand meant for a 60" model.

Oh great. Nothing worse than waiting to start watching a movie you should see but that you know is going to suck.

Granted, terms like "huge" and "significant" are subjective, but with most viewing material in most settings the difference between 0.002 and 0.000 is not that big. (Very dark or very bright room...

OLED can yield marginally better blacks. All other factors are the same or worse than plasma. And since LG, a manufacturer known for their sub-par TVs, is making the OLED I think I'd pass.

Yes, if the IR is visible under normal viewing conditions (as opposed to all-white screen) then that is problematic.

I didn't mean to imply that IR is just fine and dandy, but that it shouldn't...

This could be coincidence. Or, if the separation is caused by rough shipping, it could be that European units are more susceptible. It's also possible that the same size has something else in...

The shortest, most direct route is always preferred, even with a digital signal. Handshake issues are the main concern, but there's also the question of any unwanted video processing.

A sound bar can play 5 discreet channels, but it can't play "surround sound" because it is incapable of surrounding you. Two of the channels in a 5.1 system are behind or to the side. If a speaker...

They can't very well say it's in spec and I don't believe it could be repaired. I would guess this is a exchange or refund situation. Given that they stopped manufacturing this unit a long time ago I...

I don't recall anyone mentioning a fix. Those whose units suffered from it either returned the unit or, is separation wasn't too bad, just lived with it.

There were a handful of units that had what I think was being called a screen separation issue where the glass was separating from the bezel. it's uncommon but a known defect.

71 pounds each?! You could call them the Salk Car Battery. :)

Or at 95dB they could be the Salk Sensitive line.

Great job as always Jim.
