I think the break in dvd shows makes this uneveness more obvious because not all of the pixels are aging at the same rate, so the colored screens kinda increases this look for awhile. Just enjoy the tv and not worry about it. I have seen some that over time its much less obvious, you just have to have some patience
Thanks for the info. I guess I'll wait it out. I am approaching my 30th day of owning it and I just want to make sure that the panel is not defective so that I could simply return it and get a new one rather than go through the warranty process after the 30 days.
What is really concerning me now is this light escaping from the bottom of the panel, it's noticeable when the panel is on and nothing is on the screen, but I can also see it when watching content in "Full" mode when there is something dark along the bottom, like someone's shirt etc. The picture seems lighter along the bottom on the panel where I notice this light bleed when the screen was on and the picture off. I don't want to be nit-picky but I'm interested to know if anyone is having the same issue.
Other than that I love this panel. I know that we're supposed to break it in for best pq, but the pioneer rep said it was ok to game on it right from the start if you used the "Game Mode" and did not game on it for long periods of time. Thoughts? I've been using my PS3 for short periods, but I don't think it could have contrbuted to the light at the bottom, or the transparent lines in light white/blue scenes.
Also, I'm using OPTIMUM mode as the rep said that if I did I really didn't have to calibrate. Thoughts?
