    I dropped it last night and the exterior glass is fine, but under it is a crack in the display about a 1/3 the length of the screen. The side paneling also split, but I was able to pop it back together. Still responsive though, but pretty annoying.

    How far a distance did it fall, and onto what kind of surface? Wood floor, carpet, tile, naked concrete?

    I was at a high school basketball game on wood bleachers. I stood up and dropped it from waist height to a wood bench at knee height. It hit right on the bottom left corner. A fall of roughly 2 feet.

    That sucks. I dropped mine about 2 feet onto asphalt while getting out of the car, luckily no damage. I have the vizio cover on it, that might have helped protect it.
