So, was the line bleeding one of the reasons you took back one of the sets?
It doesn't seem to be a major topic in this thread, I wonder how the general experience with line bleed is with the VT50.
I see it mainly during previews, credits (boxes and lines as the credits are rolling), and sometimes lightly with some menu boxes on the VT50. Is this considered a defect?
To add to the retention discussion, I put in a copy of Iron Man and left it on the title screen for 2-3 minutes while I made popcorn. The rectangular menu on the left was visible for a while after that (it was only on for 2-3 mins!!) I did the 100 hours break-in slides, and I am keeping the TV at Standard until 500 hours, so this was quite surprising to me.
