Well... this is fun.
I ordered the pn51d490 at Best Buy black friday weekend, and it was backordered yesterday.
Brought it home, installed it last night (late), tested it, and thought... looks great! Can't wait to tweak when I have more time.
Today, my 3 year old son was playing with some toy that had a plastic piece fly off... and hit the middle of the screen. And cracked it.
I've read enough here to know it's not common to have it crack so easily, so it must have hit just perfect. Of course, physical damage is not covered under warranty (and I have too much integrity to lie and say it was broken when I received it).
So, I'm getting a second one (on sale again this week at Best Buy for $599... now with two pairs of 3D glasses - Black Friday weekend it was 4).
So, just thought I'd share on the thread my agony. I've waited almost a month for the TV... very sad to have it break before I even get a chance to watch it.
Anyone have any times to help prevent easy screen crackage? Besides locking children in a rubber room...
Also - does anyone know anywhere that someone would buy a brand new TV with a cracked screen? It's just a spider crack in the middle...
