Image Retention is just that obviously ... you would see this pop up right away during some commercial transitions, certain scenery, when using a media player in the menu or some service (via the app store) with a bright solid color menu (my WD Live has an all blue menu and this would stand out a bunch), I wonder if this can be seen on a black slide? what about during a bluray movie with black bars at the top and bottom ... can the IR from this tv be seen in that (I'm assuming not being black but not sure).
I keep coming back hoping to see something that would make me not worried about this issue and just give this TV a go .... Cause I can't Friggin Find ANYTHING else out there in this price range that fits the bill for a tv I am looking (size, PQ, looks, options, something NOT edge-lit, etc.).
If I saw this on my $3,000 TV I would be Livid!
Why is this happening to some sets, and why does it seem to not happen to others??? Does anyone know if certain screens are made by different manufacturors? I know thats the case on other electronics with digital screen some have issue and they find some are made by one provider and other by another ... thus some having issues due to bad provider.
Just a thought .... I TV shopped for hours today and found nothing ... came back to the thread to try and find a reason to just give this bad boy a try and then seen this pic ... now I am back at square one again.

I'm not trying to be mean but I think the people experiencing the burn in are not using the proper settings and also spending hours at a time with static images on the screen.
Just because you took breaks in between days of gaming doesn't really mean anything. The first 100 hours the phosphors are aging and playing the same game everyday will age the pixels in the area of the static images even though you took a break. So you are aging those pixels more than any of the other pixels so you are going to see some discolored areas. I would think this is not the set to get if you plan on gaming with the same game for weeks straight a couple hours a day with high brightness. To me that is asking for trouble especially in the first hundred hours. This makes me think the people experiencing IR are not taking the proper precautions. I'm also not saying it's there fault. The average consumer probably thinks using the tv's default settings shouldn't cause harm but sometimes you just have to be careful. Even though the tv allows you to do something doesn't mean it's ok. You can also go 200 miles an hour in a sports car and even though the car lets you do that you can still break it or injure yourself. Before buying a plasma you should research very carefully and take proper precautions.
LOL ... Game mode isn't the proper setting for playing a game???
He Said: "Pic shows My 50GT50 after 100 hours of break in followed
by a week or so of playing the same game daily for two to three hours"
So he took the correct precautions in breaking this TV in for the first 100 hours Before playing his game ... What more do you need to do? Run this TV on the lowest brightness, contrast, and backlight setting possible and play a game in a dark room for 30 minutes at a time so you don't have to worry about this ... The excuses are running rampid in here ... this TV has IMAGE RETENTION PROBLEMS!!! It's obviously a known fact ... owners will always come to defend.
How is playing a game for 2 or 3 hours justification enough for not buying a plasma?
I'm still trying my hardest to wrap my brain around all this horrible logic.Edited by falconman515 - 8/6/12 at 5:58pm
