What is your brightness setting there? It looks way better than most IPS gaming screens.

hopefully you will find something that suits your need.
i mainly use Lenovo's E24-10 monitors but they are used in an office environment so i cant comment on their glow/bleed.
at home i have a curved ips ultrawide that does show a bit of glow and bleed but i have to crank the brightness all the way up, use a black background and turn off the lights. something i *never* do.
good luck in your search

That being said, have you tried the different presets? I have an MSI Optix MAG241C, which seems to be a pretty similar monitor.
My MSI monitor - and I assume yours - has a lot of nice preset profiles.
I generally keep mine in Cinema because it seems to be the best all-around. It's certainly the best for moving movies, because it helps details stand out in dark scenes, but it also does well for browsing the internet and editing Word documents.
However, you might find that you prefer a different preset. Or you might find that different presets are best for different activities.
