To me, this does not seem right, but I never tested this before so I do not really know what to look for, other than the obvious darker areas that look like bands.
This TV is great, except I seem to have to same problem as peanut 1015. I noticed it when playing NHL 08 on my 360. When I scroll up and down the ice, I see some parts of the ice brighter than others, and it's not due to the lights shining on the ice. I then went on to photoshop, made some grey screens and put it on the TV, and I see some different horizontal shades of grey. It's brighter in the centre, and darker towards the upper and lower portions of the screen.
The funny thing is I see it when playing a brightly lit game, not in dark scenes. Is this banding? I'm still within my 30 day return/exchange window.
I'll try to post a pic later.
Your help is really appreciated!
