Haha, thanks for the empathy
It amazes me what passes for QC with a lot of these products. Two Epson 8350s I tried were wildly misconverged, a PT-AE8000U I briefly owned had about 40% of its screen completely out of focus... it's perhaps b/c of all those experiences that I'm quite happy with the current HW50ES, minus the flicker problem of course, which I'm hoping is just a lamp issue.
To be fair, though, a lot of convergence/focus issues could be shipping (then again, that doesn't explain why apparently most JVCs fare very well, according to these forums).
But a new $1200 screen shipped dirty
... seriously? Even my lowly Optoma GrayWolf screen never needed to be cleaned in the 6 years I owned it.
