"it's unrealistic to expect to get a completely back-light bleed free display for under 1000$"
 [..] "AHVA/IPS/PLS panels can not be viewed from above or while being looked down upon without suffering from obvious contrast loss or white glow or vibrancy loss."
Thanks for replying.

I use my monitors when sitting (normal), standing up (during exercise), laying down (from the bed).
TNs have the opposite annoyance of bad colors when looked from below, like in the third case.
Maybe an IPS could be useful for that.

For normal usage, I set my monitor's height so my eyes' level is at the above-middle part of them.
It seems the only position that doesn't cause neck pain after some time.
I imagine that IPS won't still have problems at such height.

The glow\bleed though.. I checked some videos and I quite dislike it.
Dark scenes aren't exactly uncommon in movies.
Also, I imagine it's going to get worse in time.

I'll have to think about it.

If a second 144hz monitor is a must I can only recommend [..]
Ah no, 144Hz isn't probably fundamental for a secondary monitor.
Do you have any additional recommendations at lower refresh rates?
