I have the 65EF9500.
Below is the blotchy black issue, and how I corrected 90% of that issue.
The only issue I had was with streaming NetFlix using Comcast as my "high speed" internet provider. When streaming 1080P the rate would drop to 288 and then go up slowly, then back down. I now have Comcast's streaming @105 mbps, all streaming looks better even when NetFlix showed 1080P before I upgraded. Plus I am now saving $50 per mo with the upgrade.
Using my Linksys duel band (2.4/5.0 GHz) router I can only get up to about 28 mbps, if I connect directly LAN or Wi-Fi to Comcast's modem I will get speeds of 105 mbps.
My EF9500 is connected via Wi-Fi and my Oppo is connected via LAN to the Comcast modem.
I think I saw the same thing you show in your Tron screen shots, but that is pretty much gone. If the scene is dark and there is a person or dark object in front to the side you will see what appears to be Vignetting but its just someone or somethings back side.
Taking screen shots, can be deceiving.
Below you will see a screen shot of someones Panasonic 55VT60 plasma that they are selling, listed here on AVS. One of the best Plasma's ever made, but the 100% screen shots show the screen has discoloration, that I highly doubt it has in real life viewing.
My point is don't jump to conclusions. There is a good chance the issue you think is with the EF9500 may not be a issue of the EF9500, it may be something in your video chain.
