I have had the 9509 for about 2 weeks now and have noticed a number of the issues highlighted in these forums. I have the light/white band down the centre of the screen, especially noticable on lighter/plain backgrounds and during panning shots. I have only once or twice noticed the darker banding down each side, approx where the 4:3 black boarders are. Both of the above are not really probs, I could live with them, but the other, most noticable and annoying issue is a "dirty screen" effect. On any panning shots with lighter backgrounds the upper right quadrant of the screen looks to have a dirty patch that makes the panning jerky and the image does not remain smooth(difficult to explain!). It is very noticable once it has been pointed out and, for £800, I'd expect better. Do all WS TV's suffer this problem, can I expect to have a smooth image over panning shots? Got the TV from John Lewis so am tempted to send it back until I can find one I'm happy with. I find myself constantly picking up on problems rather than enjoying watching whats on it! Is it too much to ask for a TV that has no errors, can I ever expect to happy with it? The picture, apart from the above issues, is the best I've seen and I spent a long time in various AV stores looking at this model and researching (with the help of this forum). I guess what I'm asking is would you accept it as "just life" or expect better and push for it? Thanks Everyone, this forum is invaluable!
