Ohh, you wanted a definite conclusion, not just some back & forth between a few reporting the problem & the rest without it? Then no, you are not in the right place in that case. But please be sure to let us know when you do find the thread where everyone comes to a consensus on it. I'd say check the plasma IR/BI sticky- maybe there rogo & the girls gone wild guy got together, set their panels side by side, & finally shook hands & came to a proper agreement on the matter that we all will accept.
Otherwise just buy one from amazon, & if you get IR problems, return it, & return to LCD's. The bi/IR sticky is a looong thread (good luck)!
