OH sorry AOC I2757 is matte not glossy.
HP 27XI has new coating that makes the screen less reflective when you sit right in front of it (right angle). You will easily recognize the glossy screen when you check it from other angles. That coating is really good,the image is still sharp (because it's glossy) and you will be less annoyed when seeing the reflection.
DELL S2740L is too glossy because it has a glass in front of the panel inside.
Google the reviews of them.
I think you should consider Korean glossy IPS monitors, 2560x1440. You can still set the resolution as 1920x1080.
At first I planned to buy AOC I2757, checked it at the store and it was not very impressive. And then I met HP 27XI, I love it, its design is really good. I prefer glossy screen like you. The day I brought my cash to the store to buy HP 27XI , it's not in stock that day. Haha. Finally I researched the Korean monitor and bought ACHIEVA SHIMIAN QH2700-IPSMS with DVI, VGA, HDMI and DP. I'm using it right now. It was risky to buy monitors from Korea.Edited by noelsaigon - 4/10/14 at 4:41am
