After using mine for work and fun for a month, I wish I would have left it in the store. I've managed to convince myself that the glow and bleed are not as bad as I initially thought. My X34 however has a band of slightly darker pixels across the top of the screen and I am running out of clever excuses as to why that's acceptable in a $1200 panel.
Typically when I buy higher end stuff I have a period where I expect things to be perfect. If something is a little off then I go in circles trying to figure out what to do. Eventually though I come to my senses and accept the product for what it is. For example, I own an Alienware 15 which has a pretty lackluster screen (poor brightness and a healthy amount of IPS glow). For a while there I was considering returning it but over time I learned to accept it for what it is. The other features of the laptop redeemed it.
With the X34 I don't know that I ever have, or ever will reach that point. Not for this kind of money. I am strongly considering returning it and going with a high quality, 60Hz, non G-Sync panel until they figure out how to churn these out with good, consistent quality.
