Registered there to answer you. (English is not my native)
I bought Asus VG279QM for CS GO and already using for two weeks. And I like it, but not without drawbacks.
I had before many TN 240hz panels: Benq Zowie XL2540, Alienware AW2518HF, LG 27GK750F, Asus Nitro XF252QX.
All of them I returned to the shop because of input lag, I had before them Asus VG248QE(144hz, TN) and this one was faster then all of these TN panels and I can play better with VG248QE. I like most XF252QX - input lag(3.3 ms regarding to tftcentral) was near VG248QE, but VG248QE faster.
What I can say about Asus VG279QM: yes, colors better than VG248qe, but I like also colors with XF252QX and it interesting for me to compare them in real life, but I don't have XF252QX , returned to shop in August. View angles weren't problem for me on TN because I sit in front of a monitor, but VG279QM has IPS view anlges and it's good ! )
About 27 and FullHD: yep,I see a little bit of "corn" while reading text, but this is not problem for me, there are no problems in games with it, but I would recommend to take Asus VG259QM better(the same panel, but 24.5 variant for FullHD which is more optimal to my opinion).
About input lag: VG279QM has 2.3ms input lag regarding to tftcentral and I can play good with it in CS GO ! As good as with Asus vg248qe and sometimes better, but one thing I want to note: I didn't know before that with Geforce videocards it's better to set scaling on Display in Nvidia settings, before I always used scaling on GPU( also my VG248QE didn't have display variant, only GPU), with scaling on display you have lower input lag than on GPU. I didn't check this moment with 240hz TN panels and probably I could play well with it, but as I said didn't know that before and was using GPU scaling. Also VG279QM has 2.3ms against 3.3ms of XF252QX, in theory VG279QM should be faster.
About response time: 3.6ms regarding to tftcentral with 240hz and 80 overdrive mode, but I am using 240hz and 60 OD(default setting) - seems to me better in CS GO, also tft recommends to use stock 240hz without overclocking to 280hz. So with 240hz and 60 OD you have 5.1ms response time regarding to tftcentral and I can play with it very well in CS GO, it's hard to notice a difference between the fastest XF252QX(with 2.6ms) and VG279QM.
One strange thing I want to note that I can see better smoothness of 240hz on TN, but on IPS it seems like 144hz, but I checked 144hz mode and smoothness more on 240hz(like it should be). Subjectively, but it seems smoothness of 240hz more noticable on TN, but I don't know exactly)) For me main that I can play good with VG279QM in CS GO, before I could not do it with TN 240 panels.(like with my previous Asus vg248qe)
And also I don't see cross-hatching effect there, before I saw it with all TN panels. Also there is no ghosting effect.
So my conclusion that Asus VG279QM best 240hz panel which I ever used.
Good luck! )
