.....I am going by what Panasonic told me over the phone, and the service man told me to my face,
Then how do you explain the vast majority of us who have sets built from February through August (without the -2 suffix) who also have zero uniformity issues and zero IR? It's nothing more than the usual panel lottery and it's been happening for years.
Panasonic phone reps and in-store reps have very little technical knowledge about their products - and they're almost always wrong. I am astounded at how little they know about their TVs when i've talked to them. Service men do tend to know more than reps, but they don't have insider info either.
The Panasonic Insider at HDJ is high up in the product development department and is also involved in the design of the TVs as well as being in contact with the engineering department. He knows the product very well and he is always right. He specifically said the -2 suffix is just an internal designation and that there have been zero changes or improvements to the model and it should just be ignored. We'll go with what he says over a rep or service man any day
