Having not shopped around for a new monitor for a while, I have discovered the same problem as previously.
Is the damned screen glossy or not, if I cant find out I wont buy it, no matter how good it claims to be. I will not have a glossy screen, they drive me nuts.
The seem to be a number of different "coatings" on these screens, but none of these wankers seem to be able to give the buyer the information that they so desire, is its glossy or is it matte.? Anti-reflective, does not give me the answer, is the screen like a mirror, and the anti-reflective coating takes the edge off, so its more of a dull mirror i.e. still glossy, or is it matte.
Surely this is a very simple piece of information to tell the end user, apparently not.
Anyway, IPS, does seem to be the way to go, especially as I am now seriously eyeballing 27" screens, on the basis that if I can get one such as the one in the link below that doesn't cost the earth and claims to have a 5ms response time then I will be happy.http://www.ebuyer.com/411048-lg-e27ea33 ... r-e27ea33v
All I would need to know now is whether "Anti-Glare, 3H" means MATTE.? If someone else has an LG monitor that's got an "Anti-Glare, 3H" coating, please tell me if its matte or glossy. I want to see no reflection at all in the screen, if there is a lightbulb over my right shoulder i would expect to see a muted dull glow and not the filament.
