N.B. - I have not yet even attempted to read through this thread, so I will apologize in advance if this has already been discussed.
I have noticed something odd with the display on a 65" set today... When looking at the panel from off-angle, there are vertical stripes / bands of what I can only think to describe as oily looking material inside the panel. The bands are approximately 5" wide and generally run the entire height of the panel. I tried a clean microfiber towel both with spray cleaner and dry, and neither will either clean any of it or even "smear it around". So, this leads me to believe that the issue is inside the panel.
I have not noticed any sort of issues with viewing images on the set, but I have two other 900E sets and a 940D that I have not [yet] noticed this specific condition on. Should I be chasing down a replacement? And, is there any possibility that the fact that it was stored, in its original box unopened, in my 55 degree basement for 60 days to blame for this? I have read that LCD panels are NOT susceptible to damage from freezing temperatures, so I would not believe that it would be related. I also won't have a chance to compare to the other sets I mentioned for about a week.
If anyone has any input or ideas, I'd be interested in reading through it.
Is this what you're seeing? I'm currently working with Sony trying to get a replacement... only had this set for two weeks now.
I'm seeing some significant dse during panning shots that I find unacceptable. The last photo with the gray pluge highlights the uniformity issues with this panel. I'm not seeking perfection, but I find this subpar for a premium display. I have three other "budget" lcds in my home with perfect uniformity.
