Rogo, for the first time I have to completely disagree with you.
Anyway, I thought Empire's last post was a good one and I'm glad he is returning the set. It's obviously not right for him. I've made the semantic and technical points before, so he has the last word on repeating "it's the exact same thing" when I've stated the opposite.
Look, there is something called "sick building syndrome" where a group of works get convinced the building has some horrible problem with the HVAC, or the plumbing, or the ceiling tiles. And what happens is a lot of people in the building get sick. The truth is 9 times in 10, it's what's called a "hysterical illness" -- people make themselves sick by believing they are sick.
The problem with this thread is that it contributes to hysterical illnesses and stops people from enjoying their new TVs. It doesn't mean don't watch out for annoying artifacts. But it does mean that now people are going to get needlessly paranoid. And now, something that might annoy 1 person in 1,000 will bother 20 or 30. That's not actually useful, no matter what people think.
On the other hand, if there is a real problem, someone needs to experience it first. So here, I don't know which we're dealing with. But it sounds a lot more like the former than the latter.
