Removing the anti-glare coating of a dell u2713hm, is this possible?

I'd like to know.
If the monitor came in a glossy edition, I would insta buy it.

Also, how much will the difference be for someone that does photo-shopping etc for their work ?

The cross hatch coating is somewhat noticeable of you are looking close to the panel and at an angle, but if you look a section head on it will not be visible at all, so it shouldn't me that much of an issue for photo work. The crosshatching is also only really visible on solid color sections. Unlike with the U2711, there isn't much graininess to the coating, so solid colors when viewed head on look almost like on a glossy display.
The good thing about the U2713HM is that it can be calibrated very well for good color accuracy, and actually offers a slightly wider than normal gamut in the custom and standard modes (about 84% of Adobe RGB instead of 77% like most sRGB monitors have, and like this has in the sRGB mode).

Thanks for the reply! I just read somewhere that it's a really light anti glare.
So.. Might as well keep it on, prevent any further damage.

Right?

Well one of the main reasons to get this panel is for the great warranty and customer support, and removing it will likely void the warranty at the very least (if they notice) and possibly damage the necessary polarizing coatings underneath and totally break a section of your panel, which you then can't replace since you caused the damage yourself.

I also hate ag coating. I recently received a u3014 that has the same coating as the u2713 and it really wasn't that bad, would i prefer glossy over it still? absolutely but the ag coating on this model was not a deal breaker like the previous u3011 version. It was other issues with the monitor that made me return it sadly.
