GT30 - lil scratch question

So I just got my new GT30... Its a November build date and seems to not suffer from any of the issues the set can be known for. Very happy with picture quality.

One small thing I noticed was a little, half inch scratch on the inner metal frame surrounding the glass. Neither the glass nor outer black bezel that covers the metal frame has any scratches or signs of abuse that would indicate being hit in transit or anything. I'm thinking maybe the frame got hit or scratched in the Panny factory before fully assembled? The set runs great and its a VERY small, unnoticeable thing unless you look for it. Once my new TV feeling wears off I'm assuming I wouldn't care but just wanted to share or see if anyone else has a small scratch anywhere on theirs. I'm attaching an image.

that looks like it happened at the factory if the tv has no flaws like blobs
and brightness pops then keep it and congrats on the tv

Ya, thanks guys. It's a little annoying but the TV seems to work fine... I'm trying not to look for blobs, pink, or brightness issues cuz I feel if its a problem it will be obvious. Besides, if its such a widespread issue with this stuff... chances are the replacement set would suffer from something too. Guess if everything works I can live with this little scratch!
