    Okay you guys, i have gone through THREE iPods all with a light leak on it, do you guys think i should just go buy it somewhere else like futureshop? I bought these three at Costco. I'm starting to think this is normal. Anyways, here is a pic, btw THIS IS NOT THE LIGHT REFLECTING OFF OF THE CHROME. Is anyone else experiencing this? Or do i just have REALLY bad luck?

    are you sure it's just not a light reflection
    are you positive
    are you 100% sure
    if not
    then take it back to apple
    and get a new one

    I have never had a light leak, except for a slight one on my 3G at unboxing which Apple replaced without question.

    If it's your third... Send it back and ask for a refund and get a different device.

    Luckily it only happened once to me

    I would say your never guaranteed a non light leak Touch. The only way to try is to send it back and get yet another.

    Uh because, its not only a light leak, its also like a crack between the chrome and the edge of the screen, so dust and moisture can get in damaging my iPod, or as i have heard from someone else the dust can get in, and appear under the screen and there is no way to get it out. And i really don't want to get stuck with specks under my screen everytime i want to watch a video.
