    Anyone have a perfect screen without the usual dust, stuck/dead pixels, etc? If you do have some stuck pixels how many are you seeing?

    I have never seen any dead pixels on any ipod (in person). I've had 7 ipods over the years. So far nothing.

    let's say that dust gets under the ipod touch screen...does warranty cover this and will i get an exchange for it?

    i have a cell phone where there is soo much dust under the screen that it's hard to read it...

    This may be a dumb question but what is a dead pixel?

    It's a pixel that's doesn't respond like the rest of them. E.g. it stays a certain colour (white, for example) so when you're watching a video and a dark scene is on, you will see the 'dead' pixel.

    Since the pixels are so small it's hard to notice. I have 1 itty bitty tiny pixel that's stuck on green, but it's not worth exchanging for. I don't really notice it unless I'm looking for it. Plus, exchanging it would mean sending it back to Apple, if they will engrave a new one for me. If I exchange it at an Apple Store, I doubt they have engraving equipment on-site.
