It's looks like the cause is being compounded by the feed and poor calibration - meaning that color/saturation may be too high. Panny's do not look like this. So the best I can attribute is that you got locked into an unlucky streak.

Ooh, ooh, I think I can finally answer a question here. They have the Panny in "Vivid" mode. Panasonic's "Vivid" mode is horrid. Ask to use the remote and click the Menu button... then, use the arrow buttons to choose Pic. Mode, I bet it is set to "Vivid". Scroll left or right OFF of "Vivid" and pick "Standard" ("Cinema" looks good at home but is too low contrast for viewing in brightly lit stores). You can also do the adjustments from the panel. Open the little door at the bottom and use the Menu button there.

I saw the 42" and 50" Panny's at at least 4 different stores. They all exhibited a trait which I equate to claymation... Most of the time the Panny was nice. But lots of times it would exhibit this triat. Again, this showed up on all the sets I looked at in 4 different stores. One could content the feed, but there were parts that looked fantastic too. So I think this can be ruled out.

Just dropped by today and saw the same nonsense (forgive me) about the Panasonic plasma display.

Sorry but after being used to an LCD FP during daytime with natural brightness and colors the Plasma couldn't match up and it's history and I also saw what I would call feathered/stair step edges exactly what you displayed in the photo on the right anytime the HD broadcast was sent as 4:3.
I guess they should provide a disclaimer that a $300 ISF Calibration is required to get rid of the dirty whites and the edge issues pointed out above.

I have seen this trait in every Panasonic plasma I have seen in stores. I have been to Best Buy, Circuit City, Fry's, Sears, Costco, etc...
