3.0 out of 5 stars NICE BUT TAKE CARE OF IT!!, 25 Feb. 2009
By 
This review is from: Apple iPod Touch 8GB 2nd Generation (Electronics)
Son got one just after Christmas. He bought case and screen protector to protect his investment. Very nice product which he spent many hours playing games, music etc etc.

After just over a month it started switching off anytime you touched a button - including volume. Took it back to Argos who duly sent it away. Two weeks later, it came back un-repaired because the liquid indicator (inside the headphone socket) was pink and Apple will not touch it - 'xcuse the pun - if the indicator is pink.

So assuming that the "very accurate indicator" (as Apple describe it) is what they say (!!), the only possibility is that some dampness occurred when it was heavy rain one day and it was in his Sprayway jacket pocket. If this is it, then I would suggest that the product is not fit for purpose. I am not aware that Apple state you can only use in dry weather, not in a bathroom, not during the months of December to March (August to June if you live in Scotland like me).

This product is really good and a joy to use, but if it needs kept in a hermetically sealed environment, then it's not really much use for the very market it sells to.

So buy it but take very good care of it.

Nope. Buy the 4th generation, has better features and front and rear camera which make possible to Skype with video in an easy way (mind you, all latest mobiles would do this too, now, with wireless...).
