LG nano ips 27"panel/y27q-20 flawed by glow/blb. DONT BUY if you can't stand it/dont want to do panel lottery

I've went through 4 freaking y27q-20 monitors. All of them have exaggerate glow.
Comparison with a 89 eur samsung IPS at factory brightness, vs the best of the 4 monitors i've got at 20 brightness and SRGB mode.
Can't stress enough that this is noticeable for example even in witcher 3 caves, Dark Souls 3 and horror games will make your eyes cry

I mean why they do this. Why a 89 eur trash samsung panel has none of these issue but gaming panels do?

IPS garbage!
After using a nice VA panel (LG 32GK850G) I will never go back to IPS crap again!

I am looking for a 27" LG32GK850g at this point. Not because IPS is a trash technology by itself, but because gaming IPS are overpriced and suck. I've proven it with the 89 eur monitor above and i am always unlucky when it comes to "electronics lottery"
Yes, black transitions are slow and i can see that in ufo test but honestly can you see a lot of smearing while ur gaming?

Which frame? It's bezel-less.

Yes i saw that a while ago and indeed there's very very slight smear in dark UFO ghosting transitions. Now i suppose that it's like the overshoot on y27q-20 in 60hz mode normal settin, only noticeable in ufo test or if really looking for it.
The real problem is that 32gk is too big.
I've found that 27" is not that much bigger than 24", it allows me to see the whole screen without moving eyes but is big enough to relax in the chair from some distance.
I have a 32" TV and that's definetely too big to use as monitor... Unfortunately 27" panels as good as lg32gk850 don't exist.
