It's pretty much the same in green, maybe even better. I will say that it's much more obvious in person than my pictures show. That may be because of my camera. I can see it pretty easily from 3-4 feet away with a solid image in real life but i've never noticed it in anything. I can even see it at 6-7 feet if I stare for it with a solid image up. As picky as I am, i've never noticed this before so I think people are just being extremely picky and expecting perfect.
The guy's picture is definitely worse than mine.. after looking at it more i'd say it's about 2x more noticable, not the original 4x I said. It's definitely there, but i'm pretty sure its a normal issue as it's the same thing all around the edge of the TV. It's too hard to compare with photos. I'm sure it's just more noticable on their screenshot because the TV is in torchmode or has it's backlight up. Mine is on minimum.
Look at the D8000, it has the same thing going on, but it's noticable during normal viewing because it's so bad. I think people exchanging their sets for this issue will get a set that does the same. Compared to the D8000's light leakage.. it's NOTHING.
There are much more noticable things on my HX929 than that:
1) Blooming. <-Normal
2) Banding bar about 40% up the screen. <-Normal????
