Yeah I'm right there with you. I had a 55" C8 with a bright right side and odd blotchiness that I returned in July. I just got a 55" E8 yesterday and it has a bright right side as well, although not quite as bad. Still terrible though. It looks very similar to your C8 there, actually. It seems to be a big problem this year.
I tried a Sony 55" 900f before the C8, by the way. The viewing angle and blooming were just awful to me in a dark room.
Thanks for the reply!
****! Strange that there are so few that has mentioned it in reviews. I already miss my B7, I don't think I can handle this, maybe buy myself a projector.
What has LG done? I think i need a shrink if I keep holding on to this technology. And if the Sony is that bad, ahhhhh, projector next i think.
How long did you have the C8? It didn't become better with time at all?
