Date codes explained.

Resolution

The Date Code (DC) is based on the Julian Day and helps determine the age of your product.  This code is listed on the same label as the serial number. 
The DC will be printed on the label as DC:07078. The first two digits represent the year "07". The last three digits correspond to the Julian Day "078", which corresponds to 2/10 (MM/DD) or February 10. A unit manufactured with DC:07078 is assembled on 07/02/10 (YY/MM/DD) or February 10, 2007.
