Viewing Angles

There is one correct viewing angle, or one correct way to view TN panels, which is from above or while looking down at them.  The top of a TN panel needs to line up with the bottom of the viewers eyes in order to not be off angle. 

The top left photo is of the Dell when viewed optimally; no glow or any other issues are visible as long as one views TN panels the correct way mentioned above.  In the bottom left photo the Dell is lowered a bit, which results in it looking slightly washed out, but still tolerable while it looks noticeably darker in the bottom right photo since the Dell is raised slightly.  The 27" 1440p AUO TN panels vertically viewing angles are a bit more forgiving than cheaper 1080p TN panels, allow for slightly more vertical leeway, but are still awful.  Forget about leaning back and viewing TN panels, or viewing a TN on a desk while in a bed.  On the positive side one can sit closer to a TN panel than AHVA/IPS/PLS which suffer from white glow in the bottom corners when viewed from to close, or when looked down at in the same way one needs to view a TN panel.

For single monitor use the S2719DGF's viewing angles are not a problem as long as one sits directly in front at all times, and looks down at the Dell.
