Asus PG279Q IPS GLOW/BLB acceptable?

Heya, just bought this monitor and I'm now wondering if the glow/bleeding is acceptable or not. I definitely notice it and it's annoying when watching darker movies or playing darker games. I'm just wondering if this is the level I should expect or if I have a chance of getting another model with less problems. Thanks!

The BLB on this model is pretty awful, as on most PG279Q's...some people I know are already on their 5th monitor. If you bought this locally, go to the store and ask if they can demo another one for comparison.
