My experience has been the total opposite. I have no flash lighting no clouding and no motion issues. I also have no issues with angle of view but my side viewing angles are not that extreme (3 feet from screen, maybe) so take that with a grain of salt. I find the blacks to be deep and the colors vibrant. It's nothing more than my opinion but while I do believe that there are a small percentagge of true defects and/or bugs with some sets, I also believe half of the remaining complaints are from a combination of the nit picky (either in general or in relative terms based on their previous experiences with plasma). And I believe the other half simply aren't allowing sufficient time for their sets to accclimate to their viewing environment before turning it on or are simply too aggressive with making adjustments to their picture settings too soon. Again, it's only my opinion but it's been nothing short of phenomenal for me.
BTW, I like to inform others with more specific detail on such a topic because I find that the set itself and its viewing environment matters in terms of relevant experiences of others. I have the 65 inch and it is located in a dedicated theater room with controlled lighting. So I am not competing with window or door light, kitchen light or people walking in front of the screen every 20 minutes. Therefore, the settings on my set are conducive to such an environment and likely a big reason why I have had the performance experience that I have had. Hope this helps.
Oh yeah, I've had the set since Dec 23rd.
