And panel with anti-glare coating and tempered glass is actually glare. So the manufacturer now produces two versions, glossy and matte. You might feel a little confused, but literally, tempered glass version is one of glare panels as it is glare. As long as we know, there's no glossy + tempered glass panel. If there's one like that, it would be too glare to use.
FYI, AH-IPS panel, which is used for YAMAKASI, CROSSOVER, and ACHIEVA, is also anti-glare coated panel with tempered glass. And they call it glare panel. The difference is just the panel is thinner and has better quality than S-IPS panel, which is previous version.
Hope the above is helpful to understand. BTW, so you do not like the 'current glossy' version? Please let us know.
I can show a email from accessorieswhole guaranteeing it's glossy + tempered glass, and someone else had a email saying it's matte + tempered glass. Same deal with people who have actually removed the tempered glass, 1 had matte underneath, another had glossy. You could get either by the sounds of it. They just say they only have whatever they plan on sending you i reckon.
