Cool [Q] Things to check for when buying a gpad

Hi there guys! I'm about 80% sure I'm gonna get an lge gpad when I get off work in a few hours (and about 20% tempted to get a new nexus 7), and I just wanted to ask. Is there anything specific I should check for before finalizing my purchase?

Of course I do my usual stuff like checking for dead pixels, connectivity, charging, backlight bleed, etc. Is there anything I should specifically look out for on the gpad though? Other than the blue line, that is. I doubt I'd be able to check for that, as I'm pretty sure the staff at the store won't be too happy to have me playing around with the device for half an hour, just to wait for a blue line...

Thoughts?

Some people like to check if the box is sealed.

You must have missed the endlessly updated thread here about whether people's box was sealed or not. The box was not sealed for the vast majority of people.

No I didn't miss that 7 page thread about whether the box was sealed or not.
Since people obviously get wound up on that I thought the topicstarter might want to check that too.
(Yes, it's meant ironic )
