That's the downside to the High Power, you get a scratch on it and it stands out like dogs balls and there is really nothing you can do about it. I have 4 scratches down the right side near the framing and I have no idea how they got there. The first one appeared shortly after I installed it and I just assumed that I did it during the install but never noticed immediately but 3 more scratches have turned up recently for no apparent reason. I do have a few mice in the house but I find it hard to believe they're responsible because they're so small. Maybe a rat I don't know about, who knows. Luckily the scratches are near the framing so it don't notice them too much during a movie but if I get one in the middle I won't be happy.
