I've been hearing so many bad stories about them and the boxes tell if there good or not just a bunch of stuff I'm sort of nervous.

By now your chances of getting a crappy one are slim to none. Enjoy your new touch!

Ones that haven't shipped yet have a chance of being week 39. So the ones that show up in the stores at the end of this week after drop ship direct from Apple will possibly be week 39.

The majority of week 38s are fine. All of the iPod Touch units that I have tested have a small amount of background hiss with high efficiency headphones, so I guess it's possible that Apple could fix this in a later week, although this could possibly be firmware fixable.

All in all week 38 is fine, if this is the device you want, now is probably a safe time to order. If you're really paranoid then hold off for another week or three and get a week 40 or whatever, they should definitely have things pretty much cranking along by then.

Maybe I'm missing something really obvious or something here... But... What does "Week XX" mean, and how do you figure it out? :confused:


Thanks.

just hearing you say that makes me want it that much sooner!

lol, but thank you for reassuring my 400 dollar investment. I keep getting the 'eye-rolls' and '16 gig is not worth it' when i talk about it at work and with friends

I don't think it matters -- the week 38s are mostly (probably 99%+) perfect. After spending a long time with a week 37, I am 100% satisfied with my week 38. Video is perfect, no hiss and everything works as advertised.

Prove this supposed 99% perfect stat. I'm curious.

It might not be 99% but certainly the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive on the week 38 units.

I've got a week 39 iPod a while ago. It's great.
And no there isnt a different Picture on it.

I highly doubt you got a week 39, you probably got a week 38. Week 39 units would be shipping NOW and would be arriving in stores/homes in the next few days.

Thanks.

I have been trying to figure this out too, but I think it states which week of the year it was made ie. a week 38 iPod Touch would be made on the 38th week of this year. Im 99% sure on this one. I hope this helps!

someone on this forums had their iPod ship from Apple today and it was a 38, so any that ship this week could still be a 38.
