You cant tell difference between 240 and 280 hz anyway so no difference there
The Asus on the other hand while it has an IPS is 1080P on 27 inch so the pixel density is not all that high

My answer is none of them get the LG GL850 instead and before you say its only 144hz its very hard to see any difference beyond that and even with a Titan RTX you cant drive that many games at FPS above 144 at 1440P anyway

Both those monitors have more drawbacks than the GL850 one is TN and will have crappy color reproduction and viewing angles the other is too big for the resolution and have low pixel density

I personally chose the Omen X27 for the higher PPI because I can't stand 1080p at 27 inches. Don't really care about colors/contrast on these edge lit LCD screens because even an IPS panel still looks like trash to me since I've been spoiled by my OLED.

It really is. The guy is super thorough and dedicated to his craft (which, even though it is a technical review, he elevated into an art form).

Probably neither unless you want 1080p 280Hz at 27" with some nasty price from ASUS (= good luck getting any service done on it in warranty).

Until they allow phase adjustment by user, or decide to calibrate that for each unit at factory, it will not have crosstalk free global strobing. The best thing they can do is move on to OLED and use rolling scan already. But that's a few years out now still too.
