I bought a 16gb iPod Touch on my lunchbreak, only to endure the last half of my day by reading so many negative comments about it - bad display of dark/black colors, dead pixels, faint wifi signal. While the wifi is faint (I'm typing this on my Macbook which is showing 3 bars, yet my iPhone literally sits right next to my Macbook is only showing 1) Ok first test.. a hissing sound? I don't hear it.. I'm trying all different genres of music at all different volumes and I'm not hearing it. What I am noticing is surprising - sound is better than my Macbook (which is basically the only thing I listen to music through). I'm listening to the Frou Frou album and hearing cello where I never heard it before through my Mac. Already pleased. Next: the dead pixel check: NONE! (that was my biggest concern) On to the test of dark/black video showing up as a negative --- again, appears I got lucky. I'm having none of this. Folks, PLEASE make sure to check your brightness settings. Video looks colorful, well contrasted and definitely better than on my Macbook. The colors are dense and blacks show up very well. I also get killer viewing angles which it seems nobody else is getting. I can look at it from 45 degree above, below, left and right and I notice barely a difference. Oh I'm straight giddy right now This thing flat out rocks!!! I'm gonna have fun tweaking this thing all weekend. Oh ok, so check this out - I just realized this. Though my Macbook is getting 3 bars of wifi signal and my iPod Touch is only getting one, I just raced them to load up a YouTube video - and the Touch won... barely, but still won. You know buyers remorse? Where you buy something and feel bad/guilty afterward, want to return it and get your money back? Imagine the COMPLETE opposite. Yeah, that's me right about now.
