Could you please post your post calibrate settings.
I'm a new member here at AVS and this is my first post. I hope I'm posting in the right place! I've been reading a lot on this excellent forum and I hope there are a few here that can help me make a decision.
I bought the European version of the F8500 51". Unfortunately, the set had a very loud, high pitched noise (it was way beyond buzzing). I returned the set to the store for service, but it could not be fixed due to lack of spare parts.
So the store gave me two options. Either I could swap the set to the only one they have left, and that set has been hanging on their wall for I don’t know how long. Plus, the set has 10 to 15 dead pixels in a square foot area. The dead pixels are not visible from a normal viewing distance, and certainly not while watching regular content.
The other option is to by another set, which would be a LED since they don’t have any other plasmas.
What do you say, does this seem like a fair trade to you? How big a deal is it that the F8500 set has been on the wall in the store for at least a month and a half? Probably no gentle break-in period...Static content? And what about the dead pixels, are they significant? Or is this set just as good as a new one?
I hope someone can help me decide what to do. Thanks!
