Although, this year's models are seeming to have IR issues, as I've seen @ the ST50 IR thread, of which u have posted there too. It seems some folks even after the initial break-in period, many having run slides, are experiencing IR. Not sure what's happening with the 2012 panny G-15 progressive panel, and why it is more prone than last year's st/gt/vt30 models to IR.
Many 2012 Samsung owners are seeing no IR @ all. LG, of which i've owned a few, have always had issues with IR.
Whatever one does, slides or no slides, make sure you're able to keep your content at 16x9. And avoid programming with fixed logos in the first 100 hours & keep contrast below 80 and most folks will be fine.
