Again off of one image, which only shows that some screens have an anti-glare and some don't. It does not show anything about the image quality of the panel at all. brb taking macro photo of dslr camera sensors to show which ones best11!
The only difference Between the S-IPS panels of mine that are the same, is that the AG one is a bit grainy.
Color Accuracy and saturation are the same.

As we are on the subject, would anyone know where to get one of these screen in their matte version, for around 300$ rather than 450? I really would prefer a matte screen, even if the image quality is somewhat worse, but no way I'll pay some 30% to 50% more for that.

You can apply your own antiglare coating to it.

way to go

I'm late to the party but what has already been stated, at those frame rates you shouldn't have any stuttering.

There is 1 bit of information I don't think anybody has mentioned... BF3 is the one game where nvidia outperforms ATI.

However at the higher resolution of these monitors 3 gb the 7950 has will help a ton


What I really want to know is when Overlord will have more monitors for sale..

Color accuracy also takes a dent with AG because of distortion.

The color calibrators I've thrown at them, don't agree with you.

Image accuracy does take a hit. The creators of content do not intend for their content to be viewed through this: http://imgur.com/uW5z8

If they did they would add film grain and not give users the option to turned off or shoot with a really high ISO setting (800+). Semi-glossy coating, as seen on the S2xA850D's and a few others in that image does a great job of preventing reflections and is almost completely grain free.

Some plasmas and CRT's display blacks as greys in a bright room due to the way their phosphors+coating reacts to light. A colorimeter can not pick up on this just like it can't measure the effect of the anti-glare.

Plasma Example from one of the highest end Pioneer Kuros

True colormeters aren't a end all, but it's not as huge as Koehler likes to state.
post #4589 of 4784
It is a big deal, which is why most of the newer mid-high end IPS panels sport reduced coatings. Companies are tired of dealing with all the returns and loosing money and are now using lighter coatings, HP even replaced the ZR2740W's aggressive AG with semi-glossy coating. LG's AG only became a really big issue in the last year, and LG just happened to change the coating within a year of this issue exploding on the internet. This is not a coincidence, just like there is a reason Samsung only uses semi-glossy coating on their PLS and A-MVA panels which came out last fall vs. the medium AG they use on their matte TN's and older S-PVA panels. These events are all tied together.

Nice work, but I have to ask what Samsung monitor you have...because it sucks badly. I have a Samsung 2333SW and didn't think it was anything too special. I always thought it was good..but next to my IPS? Colors aren't that off. Sure the IPS monitor has slightly better viewing angles and the color is more true, but it's nothing that amazing. The real difference is the brightness. Jesus, my Dell U2410's brightness is so high. The white's are blinding. 400CD/M2 vs Samsung's 300CD/M2. That 100 brightness makes quite a huge difference. Not that my Samsung isn't bright, but the u2410 is perhaps too bright.

Your monitor looks very blue like you have "cool" settings on.

Still..I'm not amazed by my u2410..I'm interested to see a glossy IPS monitor, but I have a great feeling I'd be disappointed.
