And also if anyone else has this set how do you like it. Not getting the set till wed so if alot of people had issues i can return it.
I've got the 50" model. The 100 hour break-in period is most certainly NOT a myth - I don't where these guys got that from. I'd trust the manual over those guys.
I have noticed some image retention while watching shows with static logos, but these have always been temperory and very short-lived (a few minutes of viewing without the logo makes them go away). Also, I have not noticed any image retention while watching shows with transparent logos.
Personally, I love my set. SD programming is a little weak, but HD looks spectacular. Gaming with the Xbox 360 looks great as well.
Also, I suggest you read the thread related to this unit and the 50" model.
