The only other geometry issue I see is a slightly perceptible hourglass shape with 4:3 material. But it's mostly perception, because measuring it, there's barely a 1/16th of an inch difference between the middle and the edges. So like I said, it's very slight, and it doesn't bother me, especially considering my last CRT set, which has considerable geometry issues.
I think the proper way to measures the bow is with a straight edge from the top to the bottom of the screen. There is too much flex in the benzel to measure from the edge. And, by the way, the same bow is there on 16:9 material, is is just not as noticable.
My first set had a full 1/4 inch bow. The replacement has a little less that 1/8 inch. Samsung claims that 1/4 inch is within specs, but I returned it anyway.
