IIRC the larger screens such as 82 and 85 don't come with a protective film. My 85 did not. If yours was open box I think it's a safe bet someone already removed the film if there was one.Okay, my buddy is insisting there is a screen saver on this TV. This was a open box so I am sure there is not. I do see a slight edge but that looks like the anti-glare coating. Only reason I ask is because I will say the screen smears like it has a screen saver but I would think that would be easy to tell if it has one? Am I wrong?
