You can always try to remove the coating which isnt very difficult.

As one of owners of this monitor, I'm telling you right now that it's not that bad FOR ME and deep down inside, I want to you know that I can live with it. BUT since someone posted a complete instructions (HARDFORUM) on how to remove the AG coat, and found out that it's not that hard to do it, I AM CURRENTLY IN PROCESS OF DOING IT.

And since I'm not afraid (especially NOT A SUCKER of crap), plus I am always inclined for the better of things, I am removing it, NOT BECAUSE TO SATISFY smarty pants OCNers but to LEARN.

I'm here not only to learn but to share what I know and what I have in mind.

Anyways, sharing some pictures; 1st hour;

FINALLY a picture of the panel's label on the AG version!

So to clarify, the original GLOSSY version of the monitor which myself and many others have uses the LM270WQ1 panel (the same panel used in the Apple Cinema Display).

This new MATTE version appears to be using the LM270WQ2 panel (the same panel used in the Dell U2711).

Thank you s3v3n! +REP!

So, based on the TFT list (and the pics in this thread)...
The new matte ones:
LGD H-IPS LM270WQ2-SLA1 2560x1440 5ms G2G 1000:1 380 178/178 1.07b (8-bit+A-FRC) 102% 97.1% 100.0% 8x CCFL 2009

The previous glossy ones:
LGD H-IPS LM270WQ1-SDE3 2560x1440 14ms G2G 1000:1 420 178/178 16.7M (8-bit) sRGB W-LED 2011

My question comes to... with this information it would seem that the SLA1 version of the 2 panel is a bit faster, and has dithering. Are they CCFL as mentioned here?

I am going to pull the trigger on one of these this week. I'll probably leave mine as matte if that's how it comes (and I'm thinking I want the matte version based on the above numbers), as I have a light directly above where I sit in my office. It seems less issues arising with the WQ2 panel as well.

I'm not an expert, but if the conclusions of this article are correct, the differences are actually quite minor (12 ms vs 14 ms, dithering). The matte version being a CCFL makes sense given how much wider the monitor casing is.

Yea it would. Guessing that the matte screens run a tad hotter because of this too.

This is GREAT news. Going to pick up this monitor tomorrow.

This monitor is clearly 8x CCFL instead of PWM dimmed LEDs as you can see how thick the panel is. This will be MUCH easier on your eyes as 8x CCFL backlight is SUPERIOR to LEDs. biggrin.gif .People have already removed the anti-glare coating off the LM270WQ2-SLA1 and this panel looks fantastic without it. biggrin.gif. 1 Billion colors biggrin.gif

After you remove the anti-glare coating this is by FAR the best 27" IPS deal you can buy today.

You get an employee discount on it?

We have 4 of them, all being the matte version :/. Yes I get a discount, forgot to check how much though.

$400 vs $700 is a pretty big difference for not much difference so it'll come down to your budget and what you plan on doing with it. Anything professional I'd point you towards the Asus but for general usage the Auria is hard to beat.
