I still see banding on this gradient, regardless of settings or profiles.

On my screen it is much smoother than that. Odd.

You see banding because the image is resize on the forum. Make sure you look at the website and your browser is at default zoom.

Edit:
The banding is just more "aggressive" on Chrome, seems indeed like an issue with the browser.

So would this be the better option between this and the PG279Q? These two seem to be the most popular for 1440p IPS G-SYNC. I've been looking for more of an all-rounder for my main display and I've heard generally good things about the Predator line.

(Sorry if this has been asked already)

From what I have seen, the XB271HU seems to have a bit better QC on their Panels. I've heard of the folks who get Asus's trying 5-6 times to get an acceptable panel. My first one was pretty darn good.

that being said, I've just ordered my 4th XB271HU.

History:

1st one: absolutely abysmal white uniformity, yellow tint in the middle, red on the sides (DEEP red).
2nd one - this one was 2nd hand - perfect but a dead subpixel, the seller agreee to take it back and refund me because he missed the dead pixel when checking and sold it as perfect.
3rd one - medium BLB and blue discolored corner with a solid 500K color temperature difference at around 10% of the screen, very distracting.

With my luck, I'll soon get my very own "log" thread, lol. Can't believe that Vega buys 5 and they are all perfectly fine while I buy 3 and they are crap.

Yes, the panel on the Acer XB271HU is the most recent: M270DAN02.6 from 2016. The Asus PG279Q uses a slightly altered version of the predecessor: M270DAN02.3 from 2014.
Most noticeable difference is the borderless design, it is less prone to backlight bleeding and slightly more costly to produce.

M270DAN02.3:

guys, there's somthing more about my 3rd XB271HU: when it turns on and I look at it kinda at a big angle (when it's showing black screen), I can see a bluish "oval" in the middle. I've seen it before on the photos og Asus PG279q. Straight ahead, I can't see it. Guess it's one more reason to get rid of this monitor though.

hard to catch on photo but here it is:

Not sure what your mission is, we already know that you are dissatisfied with your purchase. According to your statement, you are most likely at the wrong display:

This display is all about 144hz, fast response time and g-sync, things like perfect uniformity is more targeted at editing/designing.
