    Unhappy iPod Touch Defective Screens

    Yes, it's true.

    I'll start with saying I'm an iPhone owner as well, and that this iPod touch 16gb is fantastic, but has a defective screen. Numerous Mac sites + tech sites alike have been shaming this "early devices only" issue.

    Blacks are green, actually look solarized.

    Above is a good example.

    I've been with this unit since the 15th. Last night I decided not to "deal with it"
    I've booked a ProCare session at the iPod bar in a few hours, requesting a replacement and noting that this is a known issue.

    I'll keep you updated.

    And of course - If you have a defective screen, share your story

    Even if the screen is defective, never compare it to the iPhone screen. Apple seems to use a lower quality screen (touch controller?) for the iPod Touch, there have been various comparison tests and the iPhone was always the clear winner regarding display quality.

    Talking Update on Defective Screen Exchange - iPod Bar

    997TT: There was no comparison in my post. The link provided is not my website; I know the iPhone's screen is superior.
    I own one can hold it side by side to the touch and can tell.

    Anyway, got my replacement iPod Touch. Smooth transaction at the iPod bar, if any of you have negative black or feel you screen appears defective, bring it to the Apple store.
    They know, as far as I can see. There were three appointments in front of me - same thing.

    If anything apple should have made the screen on the touch better because its sole purpose is video and audio, whereas the iphone is a phone + touch
