    What's up everyone!
    I got my refurb 16gb 1st gen touch today in the mail and I'm pumped cause of how bad ass of a deal it was. This my first returb anything so can't wait to see how it goes.

    I gave my old 8gb touch to the wife cause she was hogging it anyways. One HUGE difference is the screen. The 16gb I just got today side by side with the old one has more of a yellowish tint to it. I love it!! Everything looks sharper and you can see more details on websites.

    Here's the odd thing. My old 8gb was just replaced under warranty because it was having some issues. We picked up the 8gb replacement on Wednesday and got this 16gb in the mail today, yet the screens look totally different and have the same brighteness settings.

    Just wanted to share my observations. Love the touch!! Best iPod ever!!!

    Interesting. I've only heard of 2gs having the yellow tint issue. Maybe the refurb had it screen replaced with the new ones they put on the 2g?

    There have been issues with screen contrast before, but it was on older firmware.
