Well, my 141 arrived yesterday. The box was in excellent shape save for one small hole in back rear of box.
I open the box today only to discover to my horror that the panel is severely damaged. There are multiple cracks in the glass across the panel. There are a couple of spots where the black film under the glass is scraped off and at least small area where it appears that the cells have sloughed off.
The bezel and rest of panel is in pristine shape as far as I could tell (I did not remove the panel from the base of box). Very weird.
Luckily, my dealer promises to get back to me on Monday. Also, I would not be able to install and enjoy the tv for a few more weeks anyway.
In short, make sure you open the box and inspect your panel asap.
