Yeah maybe the size will be more impactful than the picture quality itself, at least you've still got a nice panel indeed.Oh, yeah the ST50 still looks great. I always loved plasma's black levels, but once again now spoiled by infinite contract with perfect blacks on the OLED. Plus going from a 65" back to my 55". It will a slightly tough year, haha. At least I won't have to deal with any tint issues anymore! Gotta look at the bright side.
Yeah, you're doing the right thing. No sense in possibly dealing with a refurb set when you can get a brand new replacement. I've heard of people exchanging 7+ times do don't hesitate to swap it again if you get another unsatisfactory panel.
I think I will. We'll see if karma/fate/panel lotery god/whatever will be gentle with me haha
