    Light leaks appear to be a common "problem" that does not appear to affect the build of the device with the exception of some paint loss. For those of you who were lucky to pick up such a device, did you end up keeping it?

    I didn't get my iPod Touch 4G yet, but when I do and it has a light leak, I'll be returning it for a new one until no light leak or if it's really small. I want my moneys worth, $300 so I don't want any defects...

    My friend is on his third exchange and it still had a small light leak. He's given up and assumed that its too common. Just wondering if others feel the same.

    Had a light leak on my first one. About an inch long by the volume buttons (most common spot) Waiting on my replacement to be shipped to Apple. It may be a small problem to some but not to me! Hoping the new one is light leak free.

    And by the way, I think people should return their ipod if there is a leak. How else will Apple know that things are going wrong? The more people that return, the more they will focus on selling a quality built product.

    I regret not trying to return mine for another one since it does have a light leak but since most of them do have it it's possible i would get another one.

    If you put a case on it.. It will be safe.... And if it gets worse. Apple warranty will replace it... So enjoy your ipod touch 4gen. If it gets worse then take it into the apple store or to best buy were I got mine with the two year warranty slap onto it
