Summary: Research and past expereince lead me to this TV. My rating before the line appeared would have been 5 Stars. I couldn't beleieve my eyes after ordering this TV, it was on the front cover of Consumer Reports. Made me feel real good about my decission. Most beautiful picture and TV out there in my opinion. However, after only 2 weeks of viewing my wife noticed a Red Dotted Line running straight down the middle of the screen.
