If you dont like the tv, leave the thread so others can share settings and pics and actually enjoy coming here. You got a bad panel, you've said your peace, now exit stage door left. The 9100 is the best 1080p television in the world for $1400. There isnt a flaw in the television that can negate what ive just said.
Correction, I got 4 bad panels and saw 4 in the store that was just as bad. You can clearly see this in the pictures I have posted.
I have thought this through and gathered proof. I have taken reference photos of other TVs and then made random selections of store demos, as well as links to pictures from reviews that clearly show it as well. I have not heard one solid argument why this proof is invalid, blaming the camera just doesn't work when there is reference pictures of other TVs not showing these problems. I would LOVE it to be that way though, cause I love so many things about my 9100 but the discoloration is ruining many scenes. To be honest, if someone would say "I will sell you this set without tint, but it will only last two years" I would have bought it without hesistation, so you are correct that this is a love/hate relationship.
None of my detractors have so far been able to explain my pictures from the stores, which prove that this is a common defect and that I could swich 3-4 times and still get this fault (as people have done in this thread and in the 930V thread if you care to do some research). If you would acknowledge that this is a problem with what seems to be majority of sets, this discussion could move forward and LG would have an incentive to fix this problem. Now I can't help but to think that users accusing other user's criticism of being "trolling" is part of the problem and one of the reason this isn't going to be fixed soon.
I know I'm not making myself popular here because I point out these things, but all I want is for these issues to be fixed. I can return mine for sure, but from what I've seen it is likely I will get the same issue with the new set because it can be seen in the reviews and in random 910Vs i have seen in stores. To be honest I'm not that picky but this discoloration is very obvious. I've been happy for years with the old Samsung Ps51d550. Not a perfect set by any means, but the flaws are mostly performance related, such as not a very good black level and contrast. There is nothing wrong with it, like color tinting or uniformity errors. I am not demanding the perfect set, just one without discolorations visible in normal content.
It's nothing personal against any of you users here, and I respect your opinions and conclusions more than most reviewers, but that is another discussion.
For comparsion with the doggfathers set, which I think is very good, here is my picture from the same scene
