Sometimes it's tough to tell how apparent these effects are in these reviews since they're specifically trying to highlight it when describing it. Did you happen to compare this effect on both the X930E and X900E? Is the X900E better or worse in this regard? Thanks!
Going to compare tonight

I've never had one problem with my pioneer plasma and I'm getting a little worried that the 900e is going to be a nightmare. Can someone please comfort me? Lol
I think there are people like me on here who are highly perceptive, OCD, and videophiles. i notice small things that will drive me crazy for the "perfect" picture, stuff my wife doesnt notice and thinks Im anal. I can point it out and then she will be like "ok I guess I see that." But inititally the average viewing just doesnt notice or care
honestly, I think jsut about all sets have issues, and this forum will mostly have poeple joining because of issues, like myself.

Likewise, I always buy at the local merchant, as I would never ship a TV to my home where I didn't have free local pickup and delivery, and ability to easily replace. The price difference just isn't substantial enough for online vendors. I started with an edge-lit LG that was had horrible light bleed, which was picked up and replaced for free. So edge bleed was the most important critical aspect of it for me, and that's why I settled on the 900E. Every 900E I saw looked great, and had none, while every 930E had some -- and they wanted to charge me another $1,000 to live with that just to get Dolby vision! In one store they had a 900E and 930E sitting right next to each other and there was no contest. I bought the 900E right then and there.
I also went the FALD direction strictly because the edge bled on my 2011 Samsung 8000 was bad and it was my top priority. So I am at a loss that i am noticing light bars on the sides of both FALD 900e that Ive had

Ask for a replace asap.
Ive replaced twice. No dice. Maybe Im unlucky

I'm finding some movies in 4k need higher sittings to combat the judder than blu ray. "The Revenant has egreggious judder and camera pan judder throughout the movie. I have to set it to custom , smoothing 3, cinemotion high, for it to be viewable.
Ive got the reg blu ray Skyfall to a setting that actually looks pretty darn good. Youll get a slight soap opera effect every now and then but if every movie looked liek i have it now, Id be happy.

I am very perceptive, so in my case, yes 100% of the time, very faint in lighter scenes and more noticeable in dark scenes. My wife doesnt notice it till i point it out, but then she def sees that it is there.
