Thanks for the suggestion, dude. Yeah, I remember reading that in an earlier post so tried that as well, but it does not work in my case. I've already gone and set up a replacement with Best Buy for the 18th. The sales guy I had originally worked with told me that I was to be the first person to ask for a replacement, but I had taken some photos and when I showed him he said "oh that's not good." I had him go to the floor model and switch to the menu so I could see if that TV demonstrated what I was seeing on mine and it had perfect corners and zero clouding. I've attached a pic of what I see when in the same menu: cloudy spots in the corners and more in the middle. It actually looks way worse in reality.I had the same thing essentially. Then I followed the advice from here about gently rubbing/wiping the screen. I used a microfiber cloth and some spray glass cleaner (safe for TV/LED Screens) and I just wiped the screen using gentle pressure going in a circular motion from one side to the other and back a few times. All the clouding is now gone. It worked like a charm. I don't know if you have given this a try or not. But if you have not, perhaps it will help for you as it did for me.
You know, I did try bumping LD to High and it seems to have corrected the issue. At least, I am not seeing it anymore and I'm looking really hard. There must be some downsides to running LD in High, though, right..? I have to say I've never seen blacks look this good before and it's remarkable just how good the picture is!
Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!
