there were 2 issues i had out of the box.
1. "heat effect" around people mainly with sports. It basically was blur pixelation and the best wait to explain it was how the asphalt looks on a hot day. if the picture was up close it was fine but once it reached a certain distance it displayed the heat effect. It was quite noticeable. BUT narrowing it done with some help from the posters on the 7600 thread, it most likely is my cable provider.
2. banding. So i could notice like smudges or a drag when people would move or the camera would pan. it was driving me nuts and i could not figure out what it was. it was like there was something on the tv but of course there wasnt. Finally, after play fifa 13 where the camera slightly pans all the time, i noticed vertical bands. going back to watching tv, it was everywhere. even with settings optimized to keep it off.
