Removing the Anti Glare coating on my U2711 - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thread Starter 
I'm having second thoughts about this now, i just read a post someone has walk-through of how to remove the AG but its very complicated and this is my first try. I think i would be better of getting an Apple Cinema Display and using an adapter to use it as a windows monitor...

But like i said this is one mans 2cents.gif

I went from a Asus Pg221 to a Dell U2410 to my current S27A950

Gloss>AG>Gloss

so i say the gloss looks way nicer

you could do this but i like your first idea. get a cheep monitor and try it on that first. that way you get some EXP and in the long run im sure you would be more the happy with it.

i was gonna do this to my U2410 but got my Samsung instead tongue.gif

But you're also comparing a TN panel(S27A950) to an IPS panel(U2410). Which is what baffles me. Don't you mean the excessive digital vibrance on your Samsung is doing it's work too well and giving you unnatural colors?

correct i just read an article that says that the U2711 uses a "Anti Glare 3H coating" which is very aggressive and cause pixel color distortion noticeable to the human eye, i'm baffled as to why Dell felt this was a good coating..

I just read some horror stories of people killing thier monitors, 1 guy worked, 4 others failed... not good odds. I'll be looking for Apple Cinema Displays for sure.

Unless you don't turn on your room light you're always going to have glare.

If I was daring enough, which I'm definitely not, I'd probably try this on my monitor. The AG coating bothers me a bit (that mirror look s too much towards the other extreme though...), and it has no warranty anyway.

i was not trying to compair panels i was comparing Glossy Vs AG. Also i have tuned my samsung down so the colors look more natural but i never messed with my U2410 and it still looked worlds better then my PG221. this S27A950 does have some Nice true colors and looks better then my U2410 as i never properly calibrated it as i dont have the tools to do it and im not a photographer so i dont really care.

but main point Glossy is better then AG if you dont have direct light on it or are in a BRIGHT room, talken about sunny day bright with windows all around. were i have my monitor it never has an issue unless im playing a game were it is SUPER dark (metro) but in say Bf3 most maps look great. even at high noon and i dont need lights on at all its that lit up tongue.gif

Also one thing 99% of the time once the monitor is turned on you dont get any reflections. when my monitor is off i can use it as a mirror but when its on you never notice nothing
