It's an issue for me Ken. Thanks for the useless response.
I'm certainly not the first person to notice this. Theres a guy on these forums that mentioned that (in the kuros thread I believe) and also, my mother who was sitting right next to me.
Ur telling me that phosphor lag is non existant on latest gen plasmas? Really...
I want to be able to buy this tv so badly, just wondering if this issue gets better over time after some use (when phosphour decay stabilizes), or if it varies from panel to panel. I've heard that it does.
And just to clarify, the "rainbow effect" is more like a splitting of colors when you move your eyes quickly. The only color that really splits though is yellow (though I can notice a bit of all 3 on the elite1150 I was watching if I move my eyes back and forth veyr quickly in scenese with lots of white; not nearly as much of an issue), which bothers me because I notice it with regular viewing. I have pretty crazy retinal persistance, but I want to be able to enjoy this great tv too!
Ehem, also Ken, how many people actually own an 8g? The "vast majority of people" really doesn't amount to very many does it?

Guess i'm not the only one. Read the 2nd to last page on that thread especially. This is similar to what I notice, and I put it out of torch mode using d-nice settings.
