I've just set it aside, but I'm tempted to open it to verify LCD and keyboard, as I've read that several folks got bad units in these super-cheap deals. While it's very unlikely the case that it is bad, it's probably good to verify, since in truth I really won't sell it anyhow, so the only person to consider it "worth less due to open pkg" is me.

Where did you read this ? There are nearly 700 reviews on Amazon, including many in the last few months, and I cannot find any mention of these problems. About the only reason I can see to open the package is to remove the AAA alkaline batteries before they get old and start leaking. I have no intention of reselling it either, so my only reason to leave it in the package is to protect it until the day arrives when the other units malfunction and need to be replaced.

Michael - Though not 100% certain, I believe I read here on MoHPC Forums. I'd say it was within the last 6 months, perhaps less, so you may want to search. But as I noted, it's pretty unlikely, particularly coming from Amazon. The only point is that if you don't care about collect/selling value of sealed pkg, then open it to check, as the warranty won't do you much good years from now.
