Good grief. You quoted his entire post to complain about that? What he was misquoting, IMO, was the perfectly good (though archaic) Australian slang expression "Whack-o the diddle-o" (spellings vary). In context, it's a politer way of saying "WTF". Nothing to get hung about.
Way OT, by the way. So to get back on-topic I'll just add that I have observed improvement after a break-in period, and that source material makes a huge difference. Some standard DVDs look quite Blu-Ray-like on my HD20 (played on my Panny DMP-BD35) while others look noticeably worse. SD television (Dish TV) is acceptable, while the HD channels look quite good. All Blu-Rays so far have looked excellent.
I also played with the gamma, following guitarman's recommendations, and found it helped some with dark scene detail (again, this varies with the source material)
Also I have no focus drift issues. I find the quickest way to check or set the focus is to hit the menu button. The little white on black popup menu should be crisp and sharp.
