This cloth seems not to scratch my 141s screen, using lite presser on the cloth. I folded the cloth so the edges where inside the folds in my cloth.
I found that there seems to be a build up of film over a year+, like on any glass surface. However here is the one thing I can't say for sure, is the film some kind of coating done by Pioneer or simply just film build up from my environment ????
After I first used this cloth I went over my screen with the cloth from Pioneer. However there seemed to be some smearing on the screen, as you may see if you just use a cloth with no liquid added to clean a mirror.
So I used the "Microfiber Electronics Cleaning Cloth" and went over the screen once more using lite to moderate pressure on the cloth and then went over with the cloth from Pioneer.
This time there seemed to be very little smearing if any.
The screen seemed to look like it did when it was new. And i used a magnifying glass with a light on it, both when my 141 was new and now after cleaning.
The PQ seemed to be a little brighter and clearer, colors are a little more defined.
The one question I can NOT tell for sure is, did I remove any coating from Pioneer.
However this cloth seems not to be able to remove any liquid spots like from a sneeze.
This is what Pioneer has to say about cleaning.
7.2 Cleaning Methods
Before cleaning your flat panel display, unplug the power cord from the outlet.
When cleaning the screen or the glossy front bezel, gently wipe with a clean, dry cloth such as the supplied
cleaning cloth or a similar type of soft cloth (e.g., cotton, flannel, etc.). Avoid a wet or damp cloth as that can let
moisture seep into the panel. A dusty or rough-textured cloth (or if you rub too hard), can scratch surfaces.
Note: Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners on the screen.
So to sum up my findings, I am going to use a quote from ' Dirty Harry'. "Do you feel lucky, well do ya punk"
