You know, some people are saying they have problems with their screens, and others say their ipod touches work just fine. Maybe those who aren't reporting any problems are just less sensitive to the issue / don't have anything to compare it to to really notice. Same goes for the audio. Some might have better hearing than others or might just be used to crappy mp3 player sound quality to really notice. So just a word of caution when you assume that your ipod is "just fine".
