Well I decided to get it. I post some pictures and impressions once I receive it.

The XF270HU has its problems. The overdrive doesn't work while freesync is on and the huge Freesync range doesn't work correctly. That should be able to be corrected though just like the MG279Q can be modded to 55-144Hz. The backlight bleed of the XF270HU is also bad.

The PX277 could also have these same problems.

From amazon questions:

Answer: Yes, the response time overdrive (Response Time On/Off on OSD Menu) can be run together simultaneously with FreeSync on PX277.

Does overdrive function at full capacity when freesync is not enabled?what frequency does the pwm operate at?
Answer: Overdrive function does not interfere with FreeSync features at all whether or not FreeSyn is enabled or not. PWM operates on 240Hz frequency.

It still isn't clear from the amazon questions if the overdrive functions while freesync is on but at least we know the OSD will let you turn it on. They way they are avoiding the question make me think overdrive does not function while freesync is enabled.

Mine doesnt have any dead pixels from what i saw, but i did notice a weird little vertical line in the bottom right corner about 2mm long. It has rainbow looking colors depending on what angle you're looking at it from. It wont ever be noticeable or seen in normal usage so its mostly a non issue.

I have yet to calibrate it, but out of the box it looks fairly good already. The stand is of course absolute garbage, and the large bezels are offputting, but what matters is the display itself and its great in that regard. There is some glow as expected, and i do have a bit of bleed in the bottom right, but i'll take care of that when i open her up. I plan to plastidip the bezels matte black so to get rid of the glossy finish, and will most definitely be getting a vesa mount.

I picked one of these up last week. I'd say any input lag is 100‰ unnoticeable. Backlight bleed on mine was middling low, I'd say. Present on a blacked out screen, but I haven't noticed it at all gaming. No dead pixels. I have yet to explore most of the monitor features/ config options beyond Freesync.

I'm not a great judge of eye comfort thanks to an eye condition, but this Pixio does not cause me any undue discomfort. I also use f.lux when not gaming, which seems to work well.

Can you notice any flickering? Have you gotten a headache while using it? It uses PWM and I'm wondering how bad that really is. It is the final thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on this monitor. What is your brightness on the monitor set at?

No flickering or headaches. Brightness is at the default setting right now, I haven't changed any of the config options except to turn Freesync on.

Yeah that's what I figured. Yesterday was the first time I've even heard of PWM and when doing research I visited a lot of anti-PWM pages trying to sell me a non-PWM monitor. The monitor I'm using now probably uses PWM but I haven't been able to confirm that and I haven't tested it myself (Monoprice 27" IPS Zero-G). From what I understand, PWM is in most monitors and is nothing to worry about.
