Depends on your tolerance, most people are pretty anal about any sort of backlight bleed but that's literally the only issue people have with the IPS version of this monitor

I also bought the IPS version and apart from some backlight bleed which I didn't notice much in actual use, and the base being misaligned and requiring readjusting it was fine
The IPS version has very good reviews on Amazon.
Paid £530 for mine in Feb. No issues with this monitor and looks amazing!

I was lucky to get the ips version for £450 last year (used but absolutely no problem with it) I recommend it. TN panel will have slightly faster response time too, so it will be "better" for comp games.
I paid £570 for the IPS back during black Friday so this is even cheaper

The IPS version is £549 at CCL and ebuyer currently.
Can someone please link the IPS 1440p 165hz gsync one then? I'm struggling to find it.

Thanks

Not sure about "very good". There are quite a few bad reviews from people with backlight bleed, stuck/dead pixels, issues with the DisplayPort connection/controller and others.

Thanks i saw that, it threw me off as it says in specs
  • Panel Technology : IPS - Resolution : 4K2K (3840x2160)
  • Max Refresh rate (Hz) : 60Hz(DP), 24Hz(HDMI)
But it contradicts that below
Amazon are selling this for £439.25 if you’re not interested in waiting for Quidco. Check this out!

They lump all the different versions together in the reviews.

I've provided two separate links above for the 1440p IPS version.
Ips version has 4ms delay time though
I tried the IPS version, terrible orange glow in the corners like all 27" 1440p high refresh IPS screens. I have the TN version instead, which I got for £400 on Amazon warehouse and have been very happy with it.

Unless you play competitive FPS seriously (CS Go for example) it's not something that matters and unlikely something you will actually be able to physically notice anyway.

Also keep in mind they only advertise grey-to-grey times, realistic delays will be nothing like that for both panels so don't ever use it as a reliable reference.

I completely agree with you. Just wanted to point out. Anyway the lower the better:p
