When you look at the screen dead-on, perfectly centered, and it's not too close to you, the difference between a good TN and an IPS is somewhat subtle and difficult to see.

You only get noticeable differences once you start to move your head a bit or have the monitor close to you.

(The above doesn't apply to portrait mode. Portrait mode on TN is so bad, it should be declared illegal.)

I just picked up the XB252Q thanks to BlurBuster's results regarding G-sync being input lag being negligible, I was interested in giving it a try. For Quake Champions and Overwatch, 238 capped G-Sync is great!

Specifically for PUBG, since the game never goes above 144FPS and drops into the 100FPS range at times with a 1080 Ti, should I be running G-Sync on or off? I noticed in the couple of games I got in yesterday before maintenance it's relatively smooth but does stutter sometimes with G-Sync on.

Also as an aside, with my Dell and Asus monitors I can clearly see in the OSD or with a light change that G-Sync is enabled and running. Does the XB252Q have any such function?

Yes, leave G-SYNC enabled in PUBG, as that is the best scenario to use it in (fluctuating frames below the refresh rate).

G-SYNC can't remove all stutter. It only prevents the stutter caused by V-SYNC when it repeats a frame below the refresh rate, nothing else. See my paragraph here about frametime spikes to read about most of the causes of stutter (which G-SYNC can do nothing about):

The XB252Q has a refresh rate meter you can activate via OSD > Refresh rate num > On. If it's fluctuating during a game, G-SYNC is active and working, if it's static, G-SYNC isn't active, or you don't have a framerate limit in place and the framerate is exceeding your refresh rate, in which case, G-SYNC is also active.
