Maybe I will give a try BX270HU so I have just a comparison between this premium TN panel and IPS. I will write some report then. With a lot of luck I can get problem free one so I will keep it, otherwise I will return it within 14 days return period.
I would take uniformity problems over IPS glow. Thing is I have never even known about uniformity problems of TN panels until I heard about it in this thread. Hell, I was playing on TN monitors for last 10 years and never noticed it by myself.
However, glow- you can't not notice it. It is annoying and just irritating and it always interrupt me while gaming.
I am on 1080p IPS right now but I SO MUCH MORE PREFER it to PG279Q in terms of immersion couse I have no glow-bleed that it is just sick.
Yesterday I was playing MGSV- after 6 hours I noticed that I was playing 6 hours totally soaked into game. With PG279Q glow I couldn't play like that even for hour, seeing this terrible yellow glow.
If my next PG have same problems as previous I will try Dell TN. I wan 1440p and G-Sync and I can handle TN over IPS if that means no glow. Really. That is just me but I now what I want. Immersion.
