    I am considering the Panasonic 53wx42 or 53wx52.
    I like the idea of no glare, but hate the idea of a ruined screen.
    How easy is it to scratch or otherwise damage the screen on these things, and is there any recourse if a screen were to be damaged

    Jon, no need to mince words here: It's very easy to scratch an RPTV screen. But the protective screens covering them reduce contrast. Unpleasant trade-off--but if you have nonhuman, quadruped companions and/or children, you need to protect the screen. If you are without nonhuman, quadruped companion or child, take off the protective screen and enjoy. But be very careful when cleaning it.

    Not really, Jon. RPTV screens are pretty fragile. Scratch-removing compounds for glass or painted surfaces exist, but they are far too abrasive for use on an RPTV.
