I have gloss at home and matte at work. At home, my place is pretty dark, so the gloss is ok during the day when I have the blinds closed. However at work, I sit next to a window, so the gloss would be a no go for me because of reflections from the day time light from the office and the outside.

If you tend to sit somewhere with lots of background light or windows not shaded during the day. I wouldn't recommend a gloss panel.
