The banding on my set was vertical.Thoughts on the horizontal banding in this picture? Normal or not normal for this tv? I haven't noticed it during normal viewing but it's quite apparent while in the tv menus.
Here's a photo of the HGTV splash screen on my set - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BydU0y-sdTTrMEExc0hLZzJSTVk/view?usp=sharing
It's a static image and the stripe is very noticeable. I marked it with a red arrow. On any type of a panning shot the stripe was worse and others also became visible.
