    I read a review on Amazon that this year's Blade 15 has smaller T5 screws? Can someone who has opened their 2019 Razer Blade 15 tell which T5 screwdriver I need to open the chassis? To be clear, I've got the Mercury White edition (i7 8750H, RTX 2060, 512 GB SSD, 144MHz display).

    The size of a T5 screw is what makes it a T5 screw

    if the bit were smaller it would no longer be a T5 screw. Razer arbitrarily switching off from one of the most widely used Torx screws in the world would be weird.

    This is the one I want to purchase. It also is the product that had the person's review I mentioned:

    Yeah that looks like some ripoff garbage.

    Buy ifixit. I'm sure quality control has everything to do with why some people are having trouble with that bit set. ifixit is much higher quality. I've been buying their stuff for years and I have never had an issue.

    Just buy a good quality screwdriver.

    My cheapo eBay one was useless and couldn't do anything and last thing you want to do is strip the screws!
