national news. it's no secret, but it was, apparently, a bad batch. a few of my friends have nano's and they are fine.

Spose there's always duds around the place. Anywho if anyone has a Nano, I'd suggest they take them back to where they got them from and get them checked out if you're paranoid, but I'd think that it was only a bad batch.

Yep. Most seem to be fine, it seems. I know three persons who've bought their nanos and don't have any such problems.

Apple claims that less than 1% of nanos are affected. I'm trying to dig up the link I read that on, but if I can't, maybe someone else can help me out...

Just for clarification, this has nothing to do with how easily the nanos scratch. It only has to do with premature failure of the screen itself, typically by the screen "cracking" in a certain place making it unreadable.

Apple confirmed the problem exits, saying: "This is a real but minor issue involving a vendor quality problem in a small number of units. Our figures show this issue has affected less than 1/10 of 1 per cent of the total iPod nano units that we've shipped. It is not a design issue."

Thanks for the link, kainjow! I over-estimated anyway!

I even read on a website some people (albeit a very small amount) are complaining about scratches. I even read on a website an article saying "if your Nano gets scratched you know what to do..." — in other words, they're saying crack it if it's too scratched. Not good.

I have owned a 1st gen iPod, two 3rd gens, a 4th gen, and now a Nano.

I do not understand why there is so much talk about iPod screen scratching, as every single iPod i have ever owned seems to have LCDs made of the same material, all scratching equally easily.

I don't understand why there has been such a recent outburst with complaints of scratching...and it seems rather odd to me.

not true i hav had a ipod mini for quite some time and the screen only has smuges no cracks. My friend got a Nono a couple of weeks ago and he put it in his pocket of his jeans, sat down, and when he went to listen to it the screen was cracked.

It's because most people couldn't look after something if it saved their life — the kind that go to video stores, who can't borrow a DVD and return it without putting 50 billion finger prints on it.

I know the cracking of the screens was a real issue.

I was talking about scratching.

Please read.

MBHockey, have you seen some of the photos of the scratches the Nano (uniquely) has been susceptible to?

They're ludicrously bad. No iPod has had such problems in the past.



That having been said, I think it's unrealistic to expect that when you put the thing in the same pocket as your keys it'll come out pristine.

The iPod Nano uses the same display materials as the older ones, thus it should not have more problems then the older ones
