It is a PLS. I read in a review that they contacted Viewsonic on the matter and confirmed it was a PLS panel. Any backlight bleed or bad pixels for you? I notice a bit of bleed in the bottom left corner but it looks great other than that.

No discernible back light bleed that I can see although I think the very top has a faint hint of it (can't really tell though). I do have a piece of dirt stuck under the coating towards the bottom and is why I called in an RMA on it. I really need to buy a calibration tool because the calibrated gamma seems a bit dark and clips blacks, did you notice that on yours? Every panel's calibration is different so some may not have it as much.

It's the same PLS panel as in the Samsung S27A850D and the ASUS PB278Q.

The native and user presets (which I think is just all colors maxed at 100) with about 40% brightness seem to be the best looking to me.

The sRGB preset is the calibrated one. Native should be quite close as well. Not very vivid could be an indication that the display is fairly accurate. The majority of displays are oversaturated and too bright so unless you've taken the time to calibrate your previous displays (like your TV), you're used to an inaccurate image. 40 brightness is quite a lot too.

The sRGB preset was just too dark for me. I'm not used to using that dark of a display. I am using the native preset with 40 brightness and it seems to be the best looking preset and is comfortable for my eyes., so I guess I will stick with that for now.

I also discovered a blue stuck pixel last night, but when I booted up the computer this morning, it was gone. I'm hoping it stays gone, as I think I got a pretty good display.

Also, what is on the disc that came in the box?

Yeah the pre-tuned is the sRGB but native is close enough but not nearly as dark. It's all personal taste, for me the brighter the better but some that work in completely dark rooms may prefer the darker calibrated look. If there's one thing I liked about the cheap korean Shimian panel is that it was very bright with a picture that popped. This one doesn't have as much brightness or "pop" to it but its still very nice.

I think a lot of that has to do with the gloss and that the Korean monitors are probably oversaturated a bit. I have the same feeling, but the colors on this monitor are still great.
