You know what, I wonder if this issue is vertical structural members that support and rest on the back of the LCD panel putting a little too much pressure. That could cause this issue, especially on such a large screen. Are there any "warranty void if removed stickers" on the set? If I had the set, I would pop off the back cover and take a look.
Really, this is still the only 4K set that can do 60 Hz and would be perfect for a computer gaming display. There are no other options with Displayport.
Hopefully Panasonic will have a repair answer. If they don't and will still sell them as is, hopefully we see a drastic price decrease. I'd maybe put up with the faint lines if the set was $3k instead of $5.5k USD.

Due to the nature of games where the camera moves around almost constantly, I've never noticed the lines at all while playing.
Of course if Panasonic do correct the problem and people start receiving the same model of set without
the lines then I might get more upset about it...
Could you comment on the input lag and motion clarity of the set? I know without a proper test setup we cannot get any hard numbers. But since you play BF4 like myself, I thought maybe you could provide some subjective input. Do you feel completely no input lag, a little, a lot etc? As for motion clarity, when you turn really fast is it super blurry or is it fairly decent? Are you running it in regular or game mode, and have you noticed a difference between the two using native 4K input?
