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. Despite this AHVA/IPS/PLS panels still have the widest viewing angles, as well as the most accurate, even and vibrant colors.

The top of AHVA/IPS/PLS panels need to line up or be higher than the viewers eyes to eliminate glow. The top left image shows the correct way to view an AHVA/IPS/PLS panel which is also ideal for keeping proper posture and not hunching:

The Monoprice 274K offers wide viewing angles viewed from below or while leaning back, as well as off angle horizontally. It can be viewed from slightly closer than typical 27" 1440-4K AHVA/IPS/PLS panels, some of which need to be raised as well as viewed from more than 90cm/3ft away to avoid seeing glow. The raised or set so that the top of the bezel lines up with the top of the viewers head or is higher, the Monoprice 274K can be viewed without seeing glow comfortably from 60cm/2ft away.

32" AHVA 4K panels such as the Acer XB321HK and Qnix UHD3216R need to be viewed from 90cm/3ft away to completely avoid seeing contrast or color loss on the the sides. My Viewsonic VP2780-4K needs to be viewed from 75cm/2.5f taway to not see glow when viewing a black, but does not suffer from contrast and color loss on the sides when viewed from closer.
