I finally was able to get the LX900 up on a table to get a good look the image quality. There are definitely edge lighting issues with this technology.
I've attached a couple reference images to share:
1) The original image taken from the video stream output as a .JPG file
2) The same image, paused on the 60LX900. While the lighting in the middle of the image is "washed out", the bottom of the screen is 100% of what I am seeing on the set.
3) This shot tones down the "hotness" of the middle of the screen, but minimizes the lighting effect.
4) A shot of the screen with a black image displayed. There is a total lack of uniformity on the image.
Is this "Normal" and "To Be expected" performance or a lemon off the production line?
