Yeah based on what you've told me, I think the PG278Q or the new Dell G-SYNC monitor is best for you. The Dell seems to have less QC problems, otherwise it should be essentially the same as the PG278Q.

Just curious, have the people with IPS glow issues used IPS monitors before? I've been using a Korean 1440p IPS monitor for the past 3 years so I'm pretty used to the IPS glow on it. Is the glow on the ASUS really worse than other IPS monitors?

You are pretty unlucky for that crazy bottom corner glow, otherwise monitor looks siperb. Btw seems this guy has simillar issues:

I can't speak for the PG279Q, but I have the XB270HU which is of course very similar, and I've had two budget LG IPS monitors before this. The glow on the XB270HU is definitely noticeably worse.

As night drew in, the glow was more apparent. It varies with distance, lighting in room and monitor angle.

I've asked for an RMA but I'm still not decided

Well, mine bottom right corner is also mostly IPS glow:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIEgFMigNWc&feature=youtu.be

But as you can see it stays there even though I sit directly in front, looking at centre of screen. All other 3 corners at this position do not show any IPS glow as I do not sit at any angle. However no matter at what angle I look- right bottom still glow (apart from extreme down-left angle but that is uplayable as I had to lie on desk pretty much). The glow is just not uniform.

I won't set my screen at strange angles, placing my chair at strange angle and looking at my screen at strage angle only to make this glow fade away- that is not comfortable playing but some streching already.

Sure it fades away from like 1 meter but so what? I sit 2 feets from monitor that how I play and how I have desk.

Besides it does not matter if that is IPS glow, bleeding or mix of both. My bottom right glows like crazy when I sit at dam centre of it! That should not occur.

And so it goes for replacement. IPS glow should be at angles, not at dead centre. That is bad calibrated or bend panel.

You can check mine: Video above link: taken at night, dark room in Witcher 3 total dark dungeon. Brightness: 24, Gamma: 40

It does not matter if it glows. All IPS glows. It is a matter how much they glow how they glow. As you can see my bottom right glows all the time. It is like 65% IPS glow mixed with 35% bleeding.

Point is if people are willing to accept something like that saying- that is normal or are willing to get replacement until they get what they paid for.

I might have tried XB270 instead... Btw, could you compare both monitors ? Is 279 much better if we exclude all those pixel/bleed issues ?
Sorry, but what is this VA G-sync 1080p ??? I'm afraid there is no such monitor like this on the market... Or am I missing something ? Or do you mean z35 ?

This is my PG279Q http://imgur.com/a/5Upf6
This was my PG278Q http://m.imgur.com/XNv0qgr

The main difference between these two are picture quality.
Response time, latency and functionality is basically the same, if you use one or the other you won't notice any major difference.

Picture quality though is very noticible, the 279q is alot sharper and has alot more life in the colors, its darker in blacks and more colorful yet not to over colored.
The 278q has a gamma layer so it looked washed out..
Both my Dell 2412m are more colorful and have more depth then both Asus screens, and despite some glows in right hand corners of all 3 dells I have you wont notice it in games, movies or anything like that. It's like it gets hidden in the colors.

The 278q was greyish out washed and next to my dell, it looked like a piece of junk quality wise. The angles made the colors worse and after 3 hours I said no thanks.
The 279q is slightly Less colorful compare to dells but in a good way, like a little more detailed it feels but not as crips ... could be due to me using the dells for 4 years with 75 brightness xD I loved it

Yet they ruin the dells in gaming, 144hz g sync and resolution makes most things look wow. Csgo was a new game, gta5 too, Diablo 3 and now waiting for battleborn smile.gif
IPS is the way to go, I will never ever buy an TN again.

I've had the opposite experience, I have a budget IPS (24" mind you) that has worse glow than the PG279Q. The glow on the PG279Q is still very noticeable for me though.

I have to disagree, CallSignVega already showed that the TN panel of the Swift is pretty much on par with IPS. http://cdn.overclock.net/a/a0/a0260e7e_IMG_0507.jpeg if you are seeing such a huge difference between the two then I think you are doing something wrong.

Using a picture of two monitors with miss-matched brightness and aspect rations which are clearly not displaying the same parts of the image is not going to win an argument.

Callsignvega is correct.
The panels have almost identical image quality. He's disassembled more panels than anyone on this forum besides people who work for the companies themselves. I trust him fully.

The problem with the washed out Swifts is some of them had a BADLY incorrect gamma calibration from the factory. The tftcentral review sample came with 2.2 gamma. Some people got units that shipped with 1.4-1.8 gamma instead. And they tried to defend their defective units by saying that the lagom.nl gamma chart is not accurate. It *IS* if you keep your head in the center of the monitor and line up the 2.2 line with your head eye level perfectly. I've tested several panels with that method and they call came within 0.1 gamma of what was expected from the calibration.
