I've been trying hard to notice this on my G25 ever since I got it, and still haven't seen what they are talking about..... even when watching a very dark movie (Lord of the Rings) in a completely dark room.
And since I believe that some folks are seeing this, it's either that my G25 doesn't exhibit this phenomena, or that it's something that doesn't bother me.
I almost didn't buy the G25 after reading about this (and the rising black levels), as I tend to be rather sensitive to picture quality, but I've been astonishingly happy with it during my first month of viewing............ so make of that what you will.
It seems that either some sets have the problem and some don't (or maybe it's a matter of degree), or that some folks are more sensitive to it than others.
