I have the clouding as well...probably going to take my XBR2 back today and see if I can hit upon one where it isn't as bad. It's really not hurting the picture when I'm playing/watching something (that I've noticed so far), but keep in mind I've only had it a week. I'm not a big fan of the motion blur I'm getting on this set, the Sharp I had previously seemed better. Since the picture and color accuracy seem really nice though I'm going to give it another shot.

Cool, no need to buy a PS3 either then, since most of it's good games are available on the 360, so many of them should be available on the PC as well, huh? Clearly, spending $800-1000+ for a gaming PC is more cost effective for gaming than a $600 PS3 or $400 XBox....especially when the graphical differences are minimal at most.
