Samsung replies to my question about reports of screen peeling. In short, call 'em if your screen peels and they'll repair it. Official statement:
"Samsung has become aware that the mylar screen filter on a small number of its 2011 Plasma TVs are starting to peel. The mylar filter is a protective coating on the screen and does not affect the performance of the TV. Customers that are experiencing this issue should call 1-800-SAMSUNG. We would be happy to repair the TV at no cost to the customer. Samsung is committed to delivering quality products; we will investigate all consumer inquiries and resolve the matter to our customers' satisfaction."
