As when gaming or looking for them I can't really see them, I have to go really close up and look at certain angles to notice them... Thinking of just keeping it. Can't really notice them during games at all. Can not say my screen looks yellow and backlight bleed is almost non existent, seems like a minor flaw worth living with rather than entering the lottery..
I absolutely love this monitor... but I also lucked out and didn't have any defects on my panel. I understand not wanting to enter the lottery again, especially with the number of comments here talking about 4, 5, 6+ returns before getting a panel they were happy with. Do you notice the sub pixel defects outside of games, like while web browsing? If I had issues like that, I would consider a return/swap. I don't think pixel defects are that common, though you do run the risk of worse BLB. Then again, BLB doesn't bother me as much.
Do you have a Micro Center near you, or another store that carries gaming monitors? If so, you could do a really brief panel lottery like some others here have... buy it and insist on testing it in the store to check for yellow tint, BLB, dead pixels, etc. I think most stores will let you go through several monitors until you get an acceptable one, especially if the flaws are glaring and obvious to the salesperson. Though in the case of Micro Center, you'd only have the XB270HU available.
Another option, if you don't mind having an extra monitor on your credit card briefly... you could keep the current one and try 1-2 tickets in the panel lottery, and keep whichever is the best.
