Post BB got some f#cked up lightbulbs?
Is it a deceiving marketing thingy or something? I did a side by comparison of an led TV next a plasma in 2 different sections. In both cases the plasma looked overall darker. Not just the darks but the entire screen seemed hazy and dingy. Washed out. The led was much brighter. I thought the plasma was suppose to dazzle your mind.

they probably do have some fucked up Plasmas then.

a well manufactured and high end Plasma is suppose to look stunningly beautiful with truest blacks and great color presentation, and will have minor pixelation flaws.

they're probably just trying really hard to push their LED models out the door.

Best Buy cranks up every setting possible on the TV, thus making it look horrendous. Plus the store lighting is shit.

Either go to a proper home theatre specialty store, or buy and return the TV from Best Buy.

There's a magnolia BB about 10 miles from me where they have their (more expensive) TVs in a dark room.
I will try fry's and compusa as well. I bought my LG from compusa. I really want to buy locally. It makes it easier if I have a return. Plus I wont worry about the shipper beating the crap out of it.
Plus there are a few home theater stores here as well.

Yeah, I'm not saying to buy from a home theatre boutique shop (prices probably higher), but at least go there to sort out what you want to buy.
