Requirements:

- 16:9
- 27" or below
- 1440p
- 144Hz or better
- IPS or VA
- Preferably G-SYNC
- Strong preference for monitors with stands that are less than 22cm deep (any more than this leaves precious little room for the keyboard)
- Overwhelmingly strong preference for displays without backlight bleed

Thanks in advance!

Just two remarks: Get yourself a monitor stand instead of relying on manufacturer decisions. You will love it.
Also: IPS is virtually impossible to find without backlight bleed.

That said, there are two immediate, quite popular options:

There are alternatives:

Basically, all three use the same panel and build their own bells and whistles around that.

I'm pretty sure I told you to make this thread in another thread.
As stated I love the Nexius EDG, I'll edit in a second and post my thread.

Here ya go

I would also recommend you get your own stand if that's your only hang up on a monitor.

I intended to use the robot arm that came on my old HP monitor so I bought the cheaper version of my monitor while eBay was having a 15% off sale. $380 was a pretty good deal imo. No Gsync but it would be wasted on me.

FYI there are no 1440p IPS panels under 27", I was looking for almost exactly the same thing you are.

There's no such thing as one without bleed or glow but luckily my bleed is so minimal I don't notice it ever.

Keep in mind that nvidia is still asinine about blocking freesync/active sync/adaptive sync (whatever you call the DP sync standard) in their drivers, making that functionality essentially worthless for nvidia gpu users.

That's probably why he specified GSync.
