I'm sure time will march on and it might get worse, but a simple home fix may just be re-seating the bezel if you have courage. That would make sense if it really is just pushing against the film as it gets hold/cold expands/contracts.
In any event I'm sure it will get worse again but I'm happy to wait until my replacement and hopefully get an Aug build.
Hey all, I'd like some serious advice on the above.
As noted above the TV unit seems to have fixed the peeling itself, at least somewhat and now imperceptible, when the panel guy tried to do the repair and reseated it. So far it has not progressed.
I have been offered an exchange, but Samsung told me it has absolutely no stock (I am assuming that this means they are shipping them out as soon as they build them, which also I would speculate all future builds now have the mfg fix, and the only defects are ones sitting in inventory at retailers).
In any event, I am being offerred a refund which is issued when they pick up the unit (and then I can buy whatever I want), or I can stick with what I have. The TV is flawless at the moment, but for the history of the peel.
Right now I don't see any reputable retailer with stock otherwise I would go through the process and buy again with the 30 day test period, etc. I love TV and my unit is otherwise picture perfect (no dead pixels, perfect uniformity, no brightness pops, buzzing, etc). I can't see buying a different mfg/make/model.
What would you do?
*I do note I could get it from crutchfield again and get more glasses, another bd player, and for 400 cheaper than my refund amount, but id have to wait for them to get stock, which is totally unknown (which might be nice since i know they direct ship from the mfg and that means id get one with the fix already in)
