High amount of 3ds XL defects?

Just got back from returning my third XL all because of dead pixels and while there started chatting with the manager about the XL. Apparently He has had a unusually high amount of returns from screen defects. So how many times have you had to return a XL

Nothings wrong with my 3DS besides a cosmetic scratch on the hindge. Already transferred. I will pretend it's a Console War Scar from back in WW2.

I am on my 3rd XL but I'm not returning it any more, first one I had was probably the best one I had but I screwed it up and scratched the screen by leaving my microfiber cloth between it and it caused lines on my screens.

The second one had a clicking noise on the back portion of the XL above the stylus placement slot where it says wireless. But my third system has that too so meh it's not as bad as the other one so I'm keeping it.

I haven't had a dead pixel since my psp 1000, and I've owned every iteration of the psp, ds, and 3ds.

My first 2 XL's had a dead pixel on the top screen. 3rd time was a charm! I'm cursed when it comes to handhelds though...
