    Hey, just letting you know... in the future, don't put a ton of smileys like you did earlier. That might make some people mad. Just letting you know, we all learn around here. :) Welcome to MacRumors!!

    Week 44 Problems TOO!!!

    I have just got a replacement Week 44 Touch 16BG and the screen on that is crap too. What a disappointment. I really love the device, but the contrast is appalling and the viewing angle is atrocious. I'm trying to get a refund as we speak.

    I just bought the second Touch I've had and it's a week 45, yet it still has a slight net black effect and sometimes,like just now, the touch function will stop working. Very disappointed,probably going to Future Shop to return, as I just got it yesterday. I really like it, too. Only problem is the crap quality control and news of a bigger touch being announced at Macworld, which isn't reassuring for those of us that just bought an 8gb because the 16gb will likely be sold at $299 once the bigger one is released.

    Wish it weren't like this, but it's sad to see such a great piece of hardware have so many flaws. Not bashing at all, just upset that a good Touch is hard to find.

    Agreed. I just bought an iPod touch last week, returned it about 3 times. First one I received was a week 42, slight negative, week46 alot of negative, week 47 washed out screen with audio problems. I'm waiting till after macworld as well to purchase a new one, hopefully thinks should improve by then. I loved the touch as well, but im not settling on a crappy screen.

    What is the return policy at Future Shop? Are there any issues with opened iPods? Can you keep exchanging until you find one you like?

    I'm currently weighing my purchasing options between Future Shop, Best Buy, Costco and the Apple Store.

    Definitely go for Costco if they have the model you want. In Canada, they still offer their lifetime guarantee, which I've used several times on my Xbox 360. I would have gotten my Touch there but they didn't have it.

    Future Shop is usually the last place I would want to buy anything, however, I was there and really wanted one. Also, any product bought now has the exchange and return policy extended until January 8th.

    Best Buy has a good return policy(usually no questions) sometimes they will call someone to inspect it, but thats the worst and least of your troubles. Comparable to the Apple Store, although they sometimes charge a restocking fee.
