Cracked Screen Poll

Put the iLiad in its case for protection. Put the case into backpack. Took the iliad out later and its screen looked like a mess. Hmmm...so it lookes like it is cracked, athough I don't know how this was possible, being it in it's pretty bulky and sturdy M-Edge case.

Anyways I wondered who else got a cracked screen. So please go ahead and vote.

Well, you can make the post and the poll at the same time so the message is not displayed before the poll.

not quite right, my Amiga could multitask pretty well.

But actually I could only make the poll after publishing the thread, as previewing it didn't show up the poll configurator...

Anyways no respect for really early iLiad adopters anymore. Apparently. Tribble:

Hey R2D2, what do you mean in poll?
Broken=damaged or broken=cracked glass

I got a horizontal "line error" once, w/o broken glass.

The screen surface looks intact. But it shows all kind of lines and does not refresh anymore. So I meant damaged.

This doesn't sound like a warranty case

Yes, although it would say that the first generation is not fit for travel then. Which is pretty bad.

I have my first generation in an M-Edge case. I put it in my very overcrowded laptop bag every day. I'm not exactly gentle when I set my bag down either. I did setup a little extra protection for the screen within the case, but nothing major (a small sheet of cardboard). I haven't had a problem in a year and a half...

As with Adam B. I'm not overly gentle with my iLiad, I rely on the basic leather iLiad cover to protect it from what ever else is rattling around in my rucksack. So far no broken screen although it did develop a row of dead pixels (not damage related), which was eventually replaced under warranty.
