    I have a week 37 iPod touch, but I only seem to get the negative effect at certain angles, here are some videos and pics:

    *Sorry for the poor quality, they were all taken with my phone.

    The video is just about exactly what it looks like in person.

    EDIT: A better video,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6Lxk0US-tM

    Honestly, I cant tell anything from those shots. First of all, the negative effect only happens in dark areas... mostly in the blacks, you arent showing much black in any of your images.

    Secondly, as with any lcd screen, if you look at it from angles the display will change... nature of the beast.

    It's the video that really shows the negative effect, the video does a decent job of showing it, I made another video that it's easier to see it in. Heres the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6Lxk0US-tM

    P.S. My phone is a samsung a990 (3.2mp camera).

    Alright, thanks for the feedback. I just don't know anyone who has a touch yet, so I wasnt sure if the negative angle from the side was something that came with all of them or just the ones produce prior to week 38. I DO NOT have ANY negative issues when viewed straight on or from a slight angle. I guess since mine was a week 37 I kind of expected to have some sort of defect, although mine did have Macy Gray on the box and came loaded with FW 1.1.1 (This really shocked me, usually it takes months for products to be released with updated firmware. I bet if you buy a PSP right now, it'll be loaded with FW thats at least a good 4-6 months old)

    I looked at your video too. I dont see anything. It was not all of the week 37s that were defective. If it looks fine from straight on then you definately dont have the problem. I have had two ipods with the defective screens and when looking dead on you would know flat out.

    What I was saying was just that any LCD viewed from an extreme angle will either show color degradation or a negative effect.

    I have a wk 37 ipod and before the software update it seemed to only show the negative thing in certain light, conditions and media

    But once i put the 1.1.1 on it was a complete transformation in terms of what i was looking it
