Is this amount of light bleed acceptable?

    No way. Get that replaced. Send the picture to the SC when you book the appointment.

    How long would something like this take to replace?

    I believe it is a fairly quick fix a ranger can take care of.

    Definitely get a mobile ranger out - that should be warranty as long as it hasn't been impacted, damaged, abused.

    I think it’s really hard to judge light bleed from a photo. Who knows what kind of exposure the photo has?
    My guess is Tesla will tell you it’s fine. Seems to be there stock answer for subjective deficiencies.

    What's "acceptable" per their standards? That's probably an impossible question to answer...

    That's a very easy replacement. Definitely get that fixed.

    Is that full brightness in a dim environment? It could be normal, but it sure does look quite bad.

    This is 50% brightness. It still shows up on 0%.

    Sucks cuz it really only is evident for the split second that Netflix loads but it’s really ugly looking.

    Sorry this is the only correct reply here :) You can make any monitor look like that with camera exposure. Which itself doesn't mean this isn't defective but more likely they'd all look that way at this exposure. Put differently, it doesn't look to your eyes as it does in the picture.

    I think that tells the story. If it is only visible like that for a split second it is probably fine. (It could be that the auto dimming function when a mostly black screen comes up just isn't fast enough for you.)

    Is it a common issue? I haven’t seen many complaints about it but I also haven’t been on here that long.

    Are these IPS?
