Compare multiple cells of data within the same row to find outliers in Excel.

I have a spreadsheet with 6850 rows of products mapped to charge numbers in multiple facilities.  I need to compare these facility values in each row to find any that do not match the others within that row. Some cells are blank so we need to ignore the empty cells. I am not comparing to another spreadsheet or data-set simply the data within each row. I would like a formula that simply returns a true/false result.

I have seen use of the SMALL function to return a list of unique values from a column.

I guess if you could transpose the data so comparing columns rather than rows, you could then apply a count to the list produced by the SMALL function and if the count is more than 1, you have multiple entries. Not sure how it would handle blank.
