    Nothing to do with the Bloodhound Gang!

    I have been reading on the forum about bad Touches (from weeks 37-39). As I will probably be buying my Touch over the counter sometime soon can somebody please tell me if the serial number is displayed on the box? So I can avoid the dodgy ones! Will all the duff ones have been flushed through by now?

    37-39? As far as I know, anything past 37 is fine. Even some of the 37's are fine, though. I have a 37 now and it's flawless. I exchanged my original (really, REALLY bad) week 37 iPod, and I can say that the one I have now is 10 times better even though it's still a 37.

    On the back of your touch there's a number like PX33790X899

    It's the 4th and 5th number that make up the week of the year... so in that case 37.

    how do you know if it's a "bad touch"? I just checked my serial number, and mine is a week 37 one. Is mine a bad one?

    ok. but how would you be able to tell if you had a bad one? like, how is it different than a "good" one?

    Ben, I think there were some problems with week 37 ipod touches having a very dim screen. Also I heard that some of them had negative pixel effects on the dark parts of movies. I think that is what people are reffering to. I think if yours was 'bad', you would know it.
