I waited nearly 2 weeks for mine. I was really nervous with reading all these things about plasma. But after using it and watching things and just being mindeful. I feel very confident and comfortable.
Just to be more detailed on the gaming(same goes for movies with bars). If you play a game that has a HUD on for a while, just pause the game and go to settings in the menu and change it to "color wash" for about 10-15 seconds. Hit the enter button/menu/exit on ur remote and change it back to ORBITER, never lave it to normal. Idk what will happen, but Orbiter allows the pixels to be shifted so slightly you hardly notice it. This keeps things dynamic. Now go back to your game and play. At the end of the day, after each watching session, ill do a "color wash" for about a min or 2, and then change it back to Orbiter and then turn the tv off. Sounds all complicated or long, but it's not.
Once you get the tv, you'll get used to it, like any other electronic thing and If your like me, you'll catch on quickly.
The only time i had a slight IR was like the menu on the xbox or ps3 when i left it on there a bit too long. I was messing with the calibration. But dont freak. Just do color wash, and you'll see the IR melt away. Really makes you feel relieved and happy.
Hope this helps.
