  10. yes i did bump on it accidentally and it fell on the hard floor, scratched the front element badly . Sent ASA a couple of mails but nothing happened. I called them and they were fantastic , they wanted the entire unit shipped to them on not the front element alone. The whole thing incl shipping costed me around 95 euros . Im glad i got away with it . it will be back to me in two weeks
