What's the brightness level do you have?

I guess it can give some sort of 'pulse'(?) effect than cause fatigue or maybe even a headache. The Samsung 850 also uses PWM but that monitor uses a faster refresh rate. For myself, the PWM has been a total non issue and I'm glad that I bought the Asus which was priced $150 below the Samsung.

Guess you are referring to the zoom by rotating the mouse wheel

No, go into Control Panel / Adjust Screen Resolution and check the 125% or 150% tit to increase font size.

125% worked out pretty well, also in Chrome you can set font size

Yeah, works like a charm.

125% on windows and 125% on Chrome, i would suggest these settings to every PB278Q user

Eh, I have no problem reading text at normal size on 2560x1440 monitors, so I keep it default.

I have no problem too, but that doesn't mean bigger is not better

The Asus is a True 8 bit color panel correct?
