BEWARE - THIS WILL LEAVE SCRATCHES ON YOUR SCREEN
on February 20, 2014
I purchased this pen to use with my Panasonic 65VT60 I bought over the holidays. I knew I wouldn't use it much, but it seemed like a cool feature. Well, I have used the pen very lightly a couple of times since I have had my set and today while cleaning the screen I noticed light scratches on my screen. Nice swerving scratches where the pen had touched the screen. They are not visible when the set is on, but that is not the point.
I was nervous to even use it at first because the tip of the pen is just hard plastic, but I figured if it was a Panasonic made peripheral surely it would be fine and not harm such an expensive display. Well I was wrong and I am very unhappy with this product.
The use and function of this touchpen is pretty limited. It is a novelty product that will damage your very expensive TV set, stay away. Those that have left good reviews I suggest you check your display for scratches.
UPDATE: Same day update, but this issue is more unsettling by the hour. I see another reviewer says it is the anti-glare film getting scratched. I can clearly see the scratches with the set ON in reflections while daytime viewing if I am off center view even slightly. This is absolutely unacceptable to me considering it is the manufacturer's own peripheral, and we pay extra for the device outside of the display purchase. There is no way they tested these on the models with the glare filter and did not notice extensive scratching. I will be calling Panasonic about this and will update my review in the future.
