Which is the best monitor?

I wanna buy a 1440p monitor. I'm saddened because I want it glossy but the only glossy 1440p monitors I can find are the korean ones and the apple cinema.

I'm choosing between the

Asus PB278Q

AND


LG 27EA83R-D

They're both the same price. Which should I go for?

The LG is an IPS panel and the Asus is PLS.

PLS is better than TN but having seen a quality IPS panel next to a PLS panel, I'd still say IPS is better.

You'll be happy with either, though.

Isn't PLS just Samsung's version of IPS tho?
