No because for some reason people here feel that if they get the blackest blacks and a flawless high source content picture it's a trade-off for them to have to go through the mess of only watching specific material so they can avoid the Complete And Utter Obvious fact that this TV is an IR magnet waiting to happen ... those who know like you all here are aware of this so all you watch is 1080P with no logos, no sports, no games, and no regular HD TV on the lowest backlight and brightness setting possible ... So you can say "Well Mine Doesn't Have IR" ... of course it doesn't cause you don't do half of the things you should normally do on a regular TV so you Don't get this problem.
A TV is to watch TV ... watch ANYTHING .. regardless of logos on channels and sports, so you can play games if and when and for how long you want without having to worry about a game HUD burned into your screen forever, and set your brightness and settings wherever you feel gives you the best picture even if its in "torch mode" as you nerds call it ... You guys are nuts to have to limit your content just cause the TV can't handle it!
A TV is meant to be a Television ... Watch what you want, play what you want, for however long you want, whenever you want, as bright as you want, with as many logos as you want!
This is not a standard TV .. it's a luxury TV .. for those who watch perfect source 1080p movies ... in that case this TV win hands down (the reviews reflect that of course).
I want a nice tv with a Good picture and something I can do what I want to do on it whenever I want.
People need to stop defending the complete FACT that this TV is the worst hands down for IR (this has been proved even by cnet) ... you guys just don't do anything on it at all that is considered "bad" for this TV ...so of course you don't have the problem cause you do EVERYTHING possible to not get it just to say ... "well I don't get IR so you are all wrong".
