Sorry, I forgot to answer you on this, No I don't have it connected to a surge. I took it off when I still had the old set thinking it might be that. Now that I know it isn't I'll put it back on. The flashing when turning it off only happened a few times when I got the set and hasn't happened in a while so I'm not concerned about it.
I am really pleased with this set. It has an excellent picture and decent sound, probably the best sound of any of the flat panel TVs out there. Having a sub connected to the audio out really makes it sound good. I like my 553 but the glossy panel on the 554 is move vivid and gives the picture much more depth. I've always been a fan of glossy panels, even on my computers.
