Semiglossy monitors?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a monitor with semiglossy (CRT-like) coating! Are there any such monitors available?

The story:
I visited my grandparents last week and kind of went depressed when I noticed that their 15 years old (yes 15, I am not kidding) CRT monitor had better image quality than my 3 months old U2410. What I liked most about the CRT was the semiglossy surface. In the CRT you could see the contours of your head when there was light from behind but it still wasnt like a mirror, more like a mirror of the light only.

My U2410 antiglare coating ruins the experience of it. The problem is that I have seen glossy LCD monitors but find them really unpleasing as well because they behave basically like a mirror.

So are there any LCD monitors with CRT like coating? Not LCD-glossy and not anti-Glare. Even if I find a TN-panel with such coating I would be prepared to buy it and sell my U2410 cause I am just so fed up with all the antiglare stuff.

That seems like a nice display?

Are there any other semiglossy monitors out there? Any bigger ones?

That isnt semi-gloss. That is glossy.

The best coating I have seen is used by BenQ BL2400PT. I wish all monitors had such coating. Watch from 02:40.
