Yeah, it appears some people are more prone to seeing it than others. So far, I can only notice it in high contrast scenes, in a dark room, and if I look side-to-side. I suspect it's something I'll get used to and forget over time.
Oh, and in case anyone is curious, I checked for buzzing.
In my normal seating position I get no buzzing
. However, if I lean forward of my couch I can hear a moderate amount of buzzing. It seems to be very positional. I can put my ear right next to my set and not hear a thing, but there's a certain zone in front of the screen where it's noticeable. My seating is right outside of that zone for whatever reason.
I could imagine if your seating area was in that sweet spot, it could be somewhat disconcerting.
I'm curious though, if someone did notice buzzing, that if they tilted their tv slightly down (assuming it's wall-mounted and tilt-able), if it would go away entirely for them.
