That has nothing to do with the touch. All product images on Apple's site are renderings, not actual photographs. Therefore any product with a screen has a 'photoshopped' screenshot on it.Gee, I wonder why they photoshopped iPhone screen images complete with bluetooth icon onto it for their advertising...
If I recall, the bluetooth icon image was the one with the movie playing... go figure.
We're paying £269 (or $399) I ain't turning anything down to make it "go away" I'm spending a hell of a lot of money and i expect to get my money worth for a product that actually work. Not something that I'm just going to put up with by changing settings.Turn the brightness down to an acceptable level and I bet most of the problem goes away.
I've got about the same level of the problem as you - it wasn't obvious until I watched a dark scene in an episode of House, and suddenly it was staring me in the face.Alright, after reviewing a particularly dark episode of Dexter, it's pretty obvious that my Touch does have a bad "negative blacks" problem.
Regular scenes look fine, it's just when it's BLACK black shadow.
Still unsure if this warrants a return though, especially considering there's no guarantee that there will be "good" screens anytime soon. It's not a huge deal since most scenes aren't totally black, but it still can create an annoyance.
Not sure what to do. I have 30 days to go back to bestbuy.
http://playlistmag.com/features/2007/09/ipod_touch_hands_on/index.phpFor all this talk of "the iPhone doesn't have these problems," I've seen little actual photo-evidence of it.
I have a hard time believing that apple would agree to this quality display in what is probably their most important mass consumer product this holiday season.if the ipod touch display is, in itself, screwy then definitely wait till the next version!
While some people are reporting this problem, there are others who are saying that their touch does not have it. So it seems that there is a batch of faulty touches floating around. In other words: that this is not an universal problem, it only affects some touches.Most likely because it's an issue with the type of display that is in the device, so replacing it with the same thing won't really help.
