No glow as most IPS monitors have. Colors are excellent once you get the color adjustments you want. Took a while before I had it set the way I like. G-Sync is wonderful. Once you have it, you'll definitely see a difference with stuttering virtually gone as compared to the 60 Hz monitor that this replaced. Love that the height and tilt can be changed.
ELMB doesn't do it for me. It makes the graphics more blurry with it on so I don't use it. A tiny bit of backlight bleed in one corner, but nothing to bother me about. The OSD joystick can be a little difficult to use at first. The ports can be a bit tricky to plug in your cables. Awkward.
No regrets buying this monitor. I tried an IPS monitor about 8 months ago and couldn't stand the glow and returned it. Glad I went with a TN panel.

-Very good Brightness levels -Great Colors (I see little difference from the VG27AQ) -Easy to Use OSD with joystick -G-Sync is great in games
-Takes a bit of calibration to get the colors looking right -I found the display port socket is a little bit awkward to plug in
I love this monitor I bought it after deciding to return a VG27AQ IPS monitor on account of backlight bleed and finding the IPS glow too annoying when Gaming in the dark, so far I have no problems and at the time of this review I have zero Backlight bleeding and no dead pixels. it looks fantastic in the dark or in a bright room because it can get bright enough to combat glare from light sources and the panel does not have too noticeable reflections.

- Lot's of options ( presets are good too ) - HDR! - Perfect size for gaming - Overclocks to 165hz
If I had to pick one, the monitor seems to respond a bit slower when changing to and from full screen mode to desktop and back when compared to my Asus SWIFT PG278Q, minor annoyance.
This bad boy rounded out my triple monitor setup. Incredible response time when gaming, decent color ( for what I need ). Nice slim bezel. I might just get myself another one I'm so impressed!

It came into the warehouse the day I went into special order it :) . I also, use a corporate Asus monitor PB277Q for stock trading. This monitor is dual-purpose stock trading /gaming. I prefer a monitor on zero brightness. I tried the Asus VG27AQ IPS as well and realized I prefer TN panels. -Prefer the matte finish on the TN VG27BQ vs glossy IPS VG27AQ -Less light bleed from the edge when displaying black vs VG27AQ -color is amazing on both monitors -165 hz overclock runs fluid no flicker tear its perfect - low profile frame and very light monitor - Blows it out of the park for extra 100 bucks over the PB277Q - 1440p is perfect at 27" found 1080 to be very pixelated
-The snipe zoom feature was not usable in close range combat and you need to click to turn it off, so it is of no use. Never tried it long-range as I died close range right at the start - Has a little more light bleed from the edge then a PB277Q but acceptable probably due to higher refresh rate technology in it. - no darkroom feature like PB277Q which is professional for corporate, but setting the brightness at zero pretty much the same
After spending months unable to justify buying a premium Asus monitor at 1440p. I am very happy they came out with line of monitors it is exactly what I needed. To achieve 165fps at 165Hz your going to need a monster of a PC. RX580 graphics card running at 130 fps low setting in-game at 1440p.
