I have normal lighting in my room, but can make it very dark if needed. I just cannot stand watching a movie at night on the LM7600.
I own a 2011 3D Panasonic Plasma and have several network logos burned into the screen. I don't play video games on it either. All I can say is after spending what I did on the set, I'm furious over the situation and the fact that Panasonic will do nothing about it. I know they say burn in is not covered under warranty, but when you average less than 4 hrs of tv watching a night and they advertise that burn in is a thing of the past on their plasma sets (check their website, it's what made me decide to buy the thing in the first place) and you don't need to worry about it, it should not happen.
By contrast, I now have a 55LM7600 and love the picture. The 3d effect is fantastic, I see no evidence of burn in so far, and even though I am going to exchange it due to the flashlighting problems (which have actually decreased over time now) I can say that the LG is a much better product than the Panasonic. The black levels may not be the same as a plasma, but to my eye, they still look excellent. The only time I notice the flashlight effect is when viewing content with black bars, the corners look light grey. With the plasma, every time I watch it, I see the network logos burned in the screen no matter what the content.
I should add that over the last year I've also tried the Samsung 6000 series LED lit tv and after having tried out Plasma, MVA LCD, and IPS LCD. IPS panels are the only product I would recommend to someone looking for a new tv. If you can't find an edge lit LED set you like, maybe try looking for a CCFL backlit IPS set. CCFL is much more evenly lit, so you should not have to worry about flashlighting, you just won't get the black levels that local dimming in an LED allow.
