It's a 2560x1440p144hz G-Sync monitor so yeah it's good for gaming, specially high paced competitive ones.

 

I wouldn't pick it myself though given it's a TN panel.

Ah, then I guess you mean IPS monitors in general, unless Asus has pretty bad QC, not sure about that. Well all IPS has some glow, BLB, but it's not that noticable, at least personally... Better some BLB in corners which aren't that visible on non-max brightness than TN. Else, if you are afraid of IPS, have a look at good VA panels.

I have 2 DELL ISP  displays/. 

But after checking Asus monitors, 75% out of all people, they get  this kind of issues :

Yes.

 

However , it has terrible contrast and uniformity.
