I'm wondering if it is expected to see some vertical banding or dirty screen effect when viewing these TVs far off axis? I've almost always sat in front of my KS8000, but today I sat in a seat off to the side and noticed some darker areas on solid colors. This is not visible except when you sit far off-axis. I searched the forums and online, and it seems like this is a quite common uniformity issue for VA panel TVs, but I just wanted to double check that this seems relatively normal.
I've included pictures that show the issue. Note they are actually taken at a pretty steep angle, although it doesn't look like it.
No issues from normal seating positions, the colors look solid with no dark patches until you move fairly far off-axis.
