I'm now seeing that Amazon is offering its own kickback on this set, i.e. 6% back in rewards (Amazon credit). Remember also that Amazon does't (yet) collect sales tax. I played Amazon against Best Buy against Sears against hhgregg . . . and Best Buy gave me a sweet deal (bundled other gear with it). YMMV, but it's worth looking into. I'm pretty sure BB had the option of 5% back OR No Interest financing. Either way, it's a fantastic set.

I have toggled between many different picture settings and the black static is still there. Also, when I pause the screen, I can walk up to the TV and see the visible static in the freeze frame. Can someone give me some more insight into this? Thanks!

a nice line conditioner on the power outlet wouldn't hurt?

I just called PC Richard and Son to inquire about a 60 inch VT 60 for a friend. The price is so low I almost fell off my chair. They gave me an employee price sale quote and since there is no longer employee price sales on tv's anymore you have ask them directly. My buddy went down to purchase the set and the price is verified. You can pm me and I assure you it is incredible but since we cannot post prices drop me a note

Hey everyone,

Got my 60' VT60 in today...looking for advice.... I downloaded the D-nice slides put them on a flash drive and I plan on having them cycle through for the first 100 hours. What kind of settings do I run these slides on?.....

After the first 100 hours or so then what? I know some people put there own settings up here and there.... and I know there is a lot of variation between sets.... So barring getting the panel professionally calibrated... What kind of settings should I be putting this set on? Is there an average of the VT settings out there, etc.?

Please help!

Unfortunately there are countries where youd be lucky to get a clean glass of water to drink.

I just had Best Buy deliver a 65VT60 and swap out my ST60 that I purchased a few weeks ago. After they took the TV out of its packaging, they placed it on it's side to install the TV stand. After running through the initial TV setup and putting my thumb drive in with slides, I'm noticing a light band on the right side of the screen (coincidentally the same side they sat the TV on when installing the stand). It goes about 1 1/4- 1 1/2" out and is lighter than the rest of the screen. I'm attaching a picture but it's from my phone so it's not showing off how clear/obvious the difference is.

Should I be worried? I've only been running the slides for about 30 minutes with no perceptible change in this issue improving. The pic doesn't really show the light difference between the two sides but you can see the white line that goes straight down the side.AppleMark

That is normal. Many people have that on their tv. It should not be noticeable when watching regular content.

I need some help from anyone please.

Here are the settings on my TV since it was installed last Wednesday 7/7;

THX Cinema. Got contrast 50, brightness 0, color 50, tint 0, sharpness 50, color temp normal, vivid color off.

I was watching preseason football last night on the NFL network. Had it on for about three hours. After I was done watching and changed the channel I could see a slight hint Of the white screen print in the bottom right corner that says "NFL network"

What have I done wrong? Am I screwed and this will be there for the life of the set? You really have to look hard for it but since I know it's there I can see it every time.

I'm pretty much scared to watch the TV at all now because I don't want to cause any future problems. Have not even had the TV for two weeks and now I'm thinking I screwed up by making a decision to get this VT60 instead of an LED. Man I hope someone can help me I've been so cautious and careful like this TV is some piece of fine antique crystal glass or something.

Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

Here is some information about image retention (IR) that may help you.

Two Types of IR - Part I

Two Types of IR - Part II

Avoid and Remove IR.

You didn't mention how many hours are on the TV. If less than 300, you will get image retention from static logos for prolonged viewing. NFLNetwork and ESPN are two bad ones.

If you can barely see it during normal viewing, it will go away after normal viewing. I wouldn't worry too much. Just don't leave static logo channels on too long during the first 300 or so hours.

I have between 55 and 60 hours on the set. I mean it is really hard to see. I know it's there and have to stare at it and get the right scene on TV in order to see it.

So you think it will just go away by itself or do I need to run that screen wipe that is built into the TV overnight or something?

I've been sick at my stomach all day.

So I am somewhat ignorant when it comes to this but are the slides something you download from a website onto a flash drive and input into the USB port on the TV?

So my New York Giants come on tonight and I want to watch the game, should I not watch it on this tv?
