Switching the BLU to another supplier/design will eliminate the problem. The lcd panel itself which is what's manufactured by Sharp at Kameyama is fine.
Good detective work. I'd like to see you address mark_1080p post:
"Xcal - you seem certain that the BLU is the culprit, based on the Chei Mei connection, Westy threads, BLU design without the extra diffuser, etc. Are you so certain of this?
I ask because the patterns seem unique based on the pics, at least the horizontal patterns. If it were the BLU, wouldn't there be some similarities in the banding pattern? What do you think?"
However, I don't doubt your close to being on the right track with this.
Does anyone know response time for D92?
Will the D92 have a 12 bit (or greater) video DAC?
Will the D92 have HDMI 1.3 (w/ "Deep Color")?
Thanks & looking forward for "real" info from CES!
