I think they're nuts to make these plasma panels this thin and sacrifice safe temperature limits.
Can't help but wonder if the VT60s will have the same problem given enough time.
I see, thanks for the reply. I've already got the blobs... Installed a fan at the back yesterday, in front of a bigger blob, - does not seem to have any effect. The back part is cold while the front blob area is still hotter than the others. So I guess there is permanent damage and there is no simple remedy to that. At least I hope they won't get worse.
Another update...Finally after 10 weeks(seems to be Panasonic's time frame...scirica) I have my choice of a full refund, VT60, or upgrade to a ZT60. Not sure at this point...I know both VT/ZT are phenomenal displays, I just don't want to deal with this again 6 months down the road. Decisions Decisions...
