Just a little update. After a few weeks of periodically running the pixel flipper the screen issues have not gone away and in certain cases it almost seems like it is more noticeable from time to time when certain colors are on the screen. I try to keep in mind that I only watched a couple movies before doing the WOW disc so it's not like I had a lot viewing time before the process so it could just be as bad as it was and not really improving.
All that being said minus the few times a movie where it catches my eye I would say 85% of the time the issue is not a problem. I wish I would have been a little more thorough when I was checking it out as I would not have bought it if I saw the issue but I think I was just too pumped to get a new TV that I was a little quick with my test...lesson learned.
At this point I am putting a halt to the pixel flipper and will just watch the TV and hope that in time it will eventually fade as the pixels age (not even sure if this is possible but my thought is that over time the pixels should get to the point where they are emitting the same light output thus minimizing the burn in effect). Is this correct thinking or just wishful thinking on my end.
Worst case I got myself a decent basement TV for when I decide to drop the dough and go with an OLED in the future.
