2019 Blade Pro 17 - Backlight Bleed

Does anyone have a new Blade Pro 17 (latest version) without heavy backlight bleed. I'm on replacement #4 in 4 weeks and it seems like I either have extremely bad luck or there is a manufaturing/QA issue on this model. Just moving the bezel slowly opening and closing is putting a lot of pressure all around the LCD causing it to turn white and bleed backlight.
I have 3 days before giving up and returning for a refund. Just want to hear if there is any hope that at some point I might receive a better 'quality' Blade Pro. My daughters $1600 Blade did not have any backlight bleed. I guess paying twice that amount does not mean better quality. lol.

Hey there! Sorry for the mishap. This is not what Razer aims. Have you contacted our Support Team prior? If yes, please send me your previews case ID or send email address together with your laptop's serial number via PM so I can check its updates.
Case #(*Removed for security purpose)
Was on hold on and off for 25 minutes yesterday waiting for Escalation Team. Was then told they would call me back... never happened!! On phone again now. Last day before return for refund and start negative review campaign to warn others that this model has issues and support fails to address within a month.

I've sent you a PM, let continue from there.
I am working with support on replacement I think with what they sent me and tested themselves (White Glove Treatment), we are on laptop #6... I was asking the forum if I'm unique or if there is more of a widespread problem with this model.

Thanks for letting me know. We are still investigating this behavior. Allow our Support Team to update you via email. Feel free to contact them using the same email thread or you can reply to my PM.
I have purchased two separate TBP (early 2019) w/ 2080 models from two different retailers, and both suffered from the same ‘very’ bad screen bleed. I am very stuck at the moment, since the second one has absolutely no other problems besides this very noticeable light bleed.

I switched to a 15" OLED. No backlight = no backlight bleed. Although, 60hz... but... I typically use an external monitor to game. Now I get OLED vertical banding on 5% grey... gotta love technology. lol
