I recently purcahsed this set at my local Best Buy. This is my first plasma set . I was planning on getting a 46" LCD but jumped for a plasma because it was a bigger screen for the same price. However , i am not so pleased with the performance of the plasma. Whenever there is a bright white area displayed anywhere on the screen, it casts a dark shadow to the left an right of it. If there is a dark object anywhere near something white, it creates a black shadow and it will move with the object. Also happens when i play Xbox 360 when i select something on a menu and it becomes highlighted, there is a dark band that goes all the way arcross the screen. Is this normal for a plasma set to do? Is mine defective? I have tried adjusting my settings but nothing has helped.

I have noticed something similar, but usually only when accessing the tv menu and selecting options

Hmm. I just noticed if i look up at the sky in black ops there are several faint lines running across the picture. It almost looks like burn in but it only happens in bright scenes.

Yeah, it appears this is a problem with all C550 sets, and a lot of plasmas in general.. I have been running break in slides VIA USB and after almost 100 hours of use it seems that they are getting less noticeable
