I was thinking of buying the YAMAKASI 301 SPARTA. However I wanted to confirm here first whether this screen had a glass/glossy screen or matte. I really wanted to find a glossy 16:10 IPS screen, I was hoping I might have finally found it here.

There are no glossy 30" monitors, 30" IPS suck compared to the 27" 1440p options and the 30" with glass have glass placed over top of grainy matte coatings which completely destroys the perceived black depth as well as vastly increases the reflectivity.

left glass versus matte:



The Crossover 2795 QHD (read this) by far the best Korean monitor available right now.

Thank you this is exactly what I needed to know, so which Yamakasi monitor would I then need for a real glass/glossy IPS?

Another brand would be fine as well, I thought Yamakasi had such monitors however, I am determined to find a glass/glossy IPS, please recommend one if you are aware of a monitor that has these characteristics.

None. The discontinued overclock-able glossy Yamakasi Catleap Q270 from 2012 is the only decent monitor Yamakasi has made. If you want a monitor with glass the Crossover 27QW Sakwa (single input non-overclock-able), Zevroid Z27QU (fancier version of the Crossover 27QW DP with multiple inputs) and glossy Crossover 2720MDP/2730MD are the only decent options, but the 2720+30 use S-IPS panels which suffer from far more glow than the 27QW and Zevroid.

The 27QW and 27QU use Plasma Deposition Coating (watch this) while the 2720MDP/2730MD are glossy.

Thank you, I presently have a LG 24EB23 which suffers from IPS glow which I personally strongly dislike so I will avoid S-IPS. It does seem like the Plasma Deposition coating might strike a good balance and would give a similar effect compared to a glossy monitor. I will most likely get the 27QU within the next few days, thank you for this information it is rather invaluable. If anyone else has any other suggestions that you think would be superior to this monitor it would be much appreciated.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zalcom-Zevroid-27QU-27-Computer-Monitor-AH-IPS-HDMI-2560x1440-Perfect-Pixel-/121466110185?hash=item1c47f1c0e9

I was hoping that a glossy panel would give deeper blacks and reduce the effect of the IPS glow. The video you linked seems to say that the blacks would not be as deep compared to a glossy monitor? That concerns me somewhat, however I am not fond of IPS glow either. It is a tough choice, I suppose it would also depend on how bad the IPS glow is as well.

A glossy panel will only significantly increase a monitors perceived black depth when it comes into contact with a lot of light, which can also hide IPS glow if there's a enough of it.

This is correct, and it's the result of the glass covered black bezel. Glossy black, matte black and glass covered black bezels decrease monitors perceived black depth while matte grey and white bezels increase displays perceived black depth. A bias light (bright light placed behind the monitor) will vastly increase a monitors perceived black depth, especially if all other light sources are turned off or blocked.

Here's a newer coating comparison I made (from my Crossover 434K review): From left to right: Glossy Crossover 2720MDP (1440p S-IPS), Semi-Glossy Crossover 434K (4K AH-IPS), Wasabi Mango QHD277 Universal with Plasma Deposition Coating (1440p AH-IPS).

Side note/warning: Most multi-input Korean monitors do not have proper brightness controls (read this), and some (the Wasabi Mango from my above comparison does, as does the Crossover 27QW HDMI) even raise the gamma as well as ruin the contrast when the brightness is lowered. The Crossover 27QW DP, 2720MDP, 2730MD and Zevroid 27QU have proper brightness controls, but most do not.

Since the plasma deposition coating would lead to having less deep blacks, and the other two monitors you suggested suffer from significant IPS glow, they both do not seem like very appealing options. I was thinking of getting the Samsung S27B970D instead. Considering that it has a proper glossy screen and it uses an IPS panel. I was wondering if this would be a good choice instead, or if anyone else has any better suggestions.

Thats an old monitor (2012) that is out-performed by many displays today at less than half the price. TBH, its scandalous to be still going for $1200 today. It uses a PLS glossy panel which I believe are the same as the originial Qnix glossies that were going for $350 or so a year or two back.

Secondly its performance is sub-par by todays standards (review). Poor blacks and poor contrast ratios after calibration. I would take a good PDC coated ah-ips over that.
