i just got this monitor yesterday. it is an Asus PB278Q 1440p monitor.

it seems to have pretty bad backlight bleed in the bottom right, as you can see. should i return it?
i've heard it's pretty common for this monitor so maybe i should just get a refund?

also, is this backlight bleed or IPS glow? what's the difference?
the problem is only really visible when the screen is dark, but it's very noticeable when it is.
if i do try to get a replacement should i do it through newegg (where i bought it) or through asus?
