I purchased the KV32FS100 on Dec 23 and after my initial awe of the picture watching DVDs like Lord of the Rings, I have noticed violet or purplish pink, streaks vertically on the edge of both sides of the tube. These streaks are only noticeable on white backgrounds but seeing as I watch a lot of hockey on this tv I see a lot of white backgrounds. The problem is at its worst in Sports mode and less severe in Normal and Movie mode. By reducing the brightness in Sports I can almost eliminate the streaks. I called the store and they sent out a tech who when I talked to on the phone didn't know what I was talking about and then when he came out he said "Oh, Wegas do that because of the flat screen." My only recourse seemed to be to send the TV back for another one. Then I discovered this forum, great forum by the way, and saw all the other problems with the Wegas and I am now in a quandary about what to do. I checked this out on the display model at the store and it was barely noticeable but it seemed to have geometry issues with the widescreen dvd format. My set does not seem to exhibit the uneven brightness, funhouse or other geometry issues and seeing as how the store I bought from is quite small the are not likely to let me open all their boxes to test them all out. So what advice would you guys give me, reduce the brightness and live with it or send it back and take my chances on the next set? Thanks in advance for any input.
