    My screen in the top left-hand corner is lifted from the black bezel and not flush like the rest of the corners. It also moves when I press down on it. Is this happening with anyone else? Should I bother getting an exchange?

    My thin black plastic bezel ring is a tiny bit higher on the right side than the left. If you run your finger over the edge you can feel it catch a bit. No biggie. The case I get will cover it anyways.

    Why would you even consider keeping a faulty one? I'd be taking it straight back.

    I was planning on keeping it because it wasn't a big deal, but then I noticed that the fact the screen isn't flush causes an inch long light leak. Really distracting. Looks like I'm going to have to take it back.

    Uh, I wasn't complaining, just stating a fact. The light leak is distracting enough that I plan on exchanging the device. No biggie.

    Yep, had that problem and got the iPod replaced today... Only to find the new one has the same thing!!! Ugh.

    I pretty much spent the day today tracking down a replacement iPod because of this problem. I looked at the iPods on display at the Apple store and noticed that roughly half of them have the same issue.

    BUT the clicking sound that I had during video/audio recording with the wifi on seems to be eliminated in the replacement.

    After spending most of the day on the road, I think I'm going to live with it for a while. It it gets worse I will replace it. My method of thinking is that maybe if I wait a few weeks the quality control will get better?
