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).
