This kind of throws a damper on my enthusiasm a bit but thanks for the heads up. I've heard about the honeycomb pattern but didn't know this particular set has this "issue". I do sit fairly close to TVs - always have - so now I'm thinking this will become a problem. Bummer about it not really being full 1080p. Oh, well - this will do until my next upgrade
Still beats most of the LCD displays out there, if i was you i'd try and see it in person or buy it from somewhere you can return it, maybe Amazon, also bear in mind it has no filter ( i think ) so it might act like a mirror during daylight hours.
