    Interesting post on here the other day. Apparently staff at Sony Centres are instructed to run in their LCD's before putting them out for display. Preferably a minimum of 100 hours of full-screen (16:9) continual usage. It significantly reduces the amount of motion blur and ghosting on new screens allegedly.

    Anyone notice the picture improving on their LCD after a few weeks use - especially a reduction in motion blur and/or ghosting?

    I've noticed that with my V40. It's got much better, in fact watching the football on Sunday no motion blur at all.

    Also I think the picture has got brighter to the point I've turned the backlight down.

    Have you noticed any change on your V32, Ramspeed?

    If not, why not try leaving yours on for some extended periods to see if this makes a difference.

    One post I have seen on this subject suggested a 48hr period with the set permanently switched on, followed by several 8 hr periods (several consecutive nights).

    It's worth a try...
