ASUS ROG PG348 - bad IPS glow or no?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm nearing my final days (actually this and tomorrow are my last days) to potentially return my ultrawide monitor here - my first IPS monitor - and I thought I'd check out this IPS glow I saw so much about when I was researching. I never noticed anything so I thought it was perfect, but lo and behold - this certainly does compare to other screenshots I remember seeing. But I'm still not totally sure what to make of it, but now that I've tested for it, it's becoming hard to stop noticing it.

So what do you guys think? Is this 'bad' IPS glow? Should I return this monitor after all?

Oh that was at 60 percent brightness.

I'm getting the distinct impression that this is in fact *bad* IPS glow and that I should return it while I still can. Is that correct?

Camera pictures tend to exaggerate backlight bleed greatly, usually the pictures don't look anything like how it really looks. If that's the case, none of us can evaluate whether it's bad or not, only you can.
