Correct, but it had no affect on the technical specification or performance of the set. The tech stated even the panel they replaced was within spec. Samsung called me direct and said "they" wanted to do the replacement to make certain I was content with the set. The new panel does have a flaw, again the tech said was still with spec but nonetheless needed to be addressed. Again Samsung called me direct and said they would do whatever I wanted to do. Wait for a replacement to come available in mid November or a refund. What I'm saying here is, the set has been within spec each time.
Now everyone get their $hit together and let's move on.
