As far as glossy goes it'll be very similar to an apple ipad/iphone.
I personally find this whole "image quality" thing slightly overdone - I went from a 6 bit+FRC TN panel to 8 bit PLS and I don't see a massive difference.
If you really want the "pop" just turn image brightness to max - but now that I've used the lower setting I find it much easier on the eyes and the colours feel more natural.
With the new semi-matte coatings I don't think there is much difference anymore. WIth the older aggressive AG it's a different matter, but here it isn't. The quality you speak of is more to do with the amount of detail rendered - with matte you will see just as much detail, and have no reflections getting in the way. If you have even a few reflections now, matte will get you more out of your graphics cards than glossy.
