I agree. I've loved my glossy Asus VG236HE 120hz monitor since I bought it new in 2009. I still use it to this day, it looks so good. The coating on the Dell is definitely much heavier than the same panel in the XL2730Z which I had for a while, my only real complain about the monitor in general. The other thing that annoys me is if you turn it off while the computer is running it "disconnects" but I think that is a G-sync thing because my old BenQ XL2420G did that as well.

Matte is far superior to Gloss. Gloss is too reflective, Matte has no reflection period.

I like gloss the best and have no problem with reflections while heavy matte coating makes my eyes tired. Its a preference, and everybody may not share yours.

Superior in anti-reflection yes. Significantly inferior in picture quality however since you're putting this thick blurry ass crap over your screen, ruining image quality. Semi-glossy or glossy + controlled room lighting is best. Semi gloss being more practical for most people, it's very easy to use a semi-glossy screen and get zero reflections and have next to no eye fatigue thanks to bias lighting.

Although really, AR treated glass gives the best of both worlds (still more reflective than matte crap but supposedly much less reflective than any typical glossy and semi-glossy coating) but it's rare and expensive.

Again 20+ years. Nothing but glass/gloss monitors. No problems with reflection, no reflections at all in fact with a light on, or off, or a tv on in the same room, nor from my led lit keyboard below it.
Can't see my face in it, Nothing. Nada. Zilch. If it was a shtty implementation of pure mirror glass then there might be a problem. Again, that's not all gloss/glass monitors and in 20 years, never had one of those.

If most if not all Tvs are gloss and people seem to use them just fine. It's apparently not a huge issue, or else they probably wouldn't be that way for the last 60+ years... rolleyes.gif
Do you watch movies on your tv with an open window beaming sunlight in, and then complain about the reflection? Brilliant! Go stare at the sun for a while and then complain that it's too bright. cool.gif

Now I'm super excited, my monitor has started getting dead pixels. First it was one, now three. This may be going back after all. My luck with the panel lottery is so damn bad, this has to be the 7th $500+ monitor in a row that has had some kind of physical defect.

all from the same store ?

I've picked up a 2nd one from Dell Outlet for $354 with taxes and shipped. If anyone is unhappy with the monitor, return it, and buy something else or don't buy anything. Please stop crying like little kids. It's really annoying.

No, I order from different places although two I've gotten locally. Its really starting to get on my nerves to be honest, I can't seem to get a monitor that doesn't have some sort of glaring physical defect. I never used to have this problem 5-6 years ago, but monitors in general seemed to be much higher quality back then.

Would you return the monitor if you had a bleeding blue line at the bottom like this



I returned the first one I got, it was exactly a month ago, there were some shipping problems when receiving the replacement, so I got it a week+ late than I should have.
The circle pressings are a lot less apparent, but the bleeding is more visible. Seeing others get near perfect panels makes me think that the company I'm buying from is selling refurbs... thinking.gif
