    A friend took me to Best Buy to look at RPTVs he was interested in. I was about to give my stamp of approval on a 51", 16:9 unit (KP51HW40), when I noticed what appeared to be vertical lines in any area of the image that contained red. Once I mentioned it, he noticed it too, and we didn't notice it in any other models.

    Has anyone heard of this, and know what it may have been? I had a go at sharpness, brightness, contrast, and saturation to at least get the image so it didn't look like typical Best Buy displays, but it was still very evident after adjusting.

    Any ideas?

    I've looked at the Sony HW40 sets in Sears, BB, and CC, and own a KP57HW40. I've never seen the flaw you're describing, so it was probably just on that one individual set, or perhaps bad cabling to that particular set.
