Light-Bleed 3rd Unit


I've replace two Surface Books because of the yellow screen bleed at the right-side of my Surface Book display and the top of it as well. I've had my third Surface Book for three weeks and once again, I'm getting the same yellow light-bleed in the same areas. Is this an inevitable defect of the Surface Book display or is anyone else having this issue? For $3,000, you'd think Microsoft wouldn't ship defective units, but they have. This is so frustrating and I don't know if it's worth replacing it again...

I've heard the Surface 3, Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 have similar issues. I agree that this should not happen for a device this expensive. I only have some light bleed when starting up my Surface 3.
However I have a different screen issue and want my device replaced. Let's hope the new one doesn't have more light bleed...
