Great monitor marred by questionable quality control and bad customer service

Summary: I purchased this monitor around October 2013. Like many reviews mentioned, I have to exchange it twice to get one that's acceptable. First I'm not one of those who complain about IPS glow or back light bleed - I use my monitor in a well-lit room and it's mainly used for work so the backgrounds are...
Summary: I purchased this monitor after returning 2 Asus PB 278q's - they had everything from stuck pixels to scratches to broken buttons. When I got this monitor I was delighted - there was essentially no backlight bleed, and the panel had no pixel issues. Then, I went to bed.
Summary: The monitor was good. I am not particularly demanding as far as the quality of the picture, so I was fairly pleased... Until I the monitor got dimmer and I got vertical lines. I could get the picture back if I gently push in the middle of the back panel.
Great panel BUT.....backlight bleeding problems!!!

Summary: I went through 2 Dell U2713s monitors from Amazon. The first 2 Dell U2713s were awesome but had HORRIBLE backlight bleeding (i posted pictures)! It was quite unfortunate. I finally gave up on Dell and decided to order the ASUS PB278Q monitor and it is just about perfect!
Summary: I ordered 3 of these to replace my old triple screen monitor setup that I use for video editing and triple screen gaming. Firstly, those monitors aren't that expensive, I don't understand why NCIX offer them at a staggering price. I had it price matched 200$ off from a neighbor online store.
Pros: - sharp display, - solid and convenient wire support, - slim, - tilt features, - USB 3.0, Display Port 1.2, DVI dual link input, plus HDMI and old vga support.
Cons: - Bad backlight bleeding problems, - old HDMI support, doesn't support more than 1080p, - no Displayport cable supplied, - vga cable supplied., - Expensive via NCIX, pricematch highly recommended
Summary: My Asus computer does not recognize the Dell when I use the DVI cable. It recognizes it only with the VGA cable with lower resolution. I'm on with Dell Support after over an hour of trying to fix this issue. The screen looks like it will be great, but the set-up is frustrating.
Great visually, but emits a high-pitched sound with certain text sizes

Summary: Excellent display visually, except for one annoying factor: when the screen is entirely filled with ca 18pt type (approx. 55 lines of it), there is a high-pitched audible whine coming from its electronics.
