Any recommendations for a newer or reasonably sized 25 to 32" 1440p glossy monitors?
If you are in the USA, I think we are still one of the only company that makes and ships Glossy 2560 x 1440 monitors:

https://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-2560x1.../dp/B00F2K4M0C


It has DP, HDMI, and Dual Link DVI inputs.

I AM! Thank you. I will check it out. at a glance, despite the thick bezels, it seems like what I'm looking for.

You'd have had your own monopoly on this niche of the market if you had had released a glossy 1440p AHVA monitor with 144+ Hz. =(

You'd have certainly gotten my money instead of Viewsonic.

I know it's not that black and white to make monitors because you're dependent on how AUO produces the panels, but I think some consumers wonder whether the inexistence of high-end gaming monitors with glossy or semi-glossy panels is solely the manufacturer's fault or the assembler's, or, if it's the latter, if market studies absolutely invalidate, financially, the legitimacy of their existence altogether.

I mean, glossy and AR treated TV's have an obvious market.

The only recent glossy were panels used in Apple monitors and some Korean monitors and probably also the Nixeus linked above it seems. Not sure Apple still does glossy monitors hence panel makers might have stopped manufacturing them (newer ones) if there is not big customer to buy glossy panels from them.

Semi glossy is the way to go but still hard to find. Pure glossy is a pain to use unless you're dark skinned living in a pitch black room, etc. Nothing better than to stare at your own reflection on a fully glossy monitor.

I am also looking for exactly the same thing, with minimal bezels and 24"-27" in 1440p, and I'm based in Asia. Any recommendations?

Nixeus is definitely out due to its hideous bezels.

Usually a Semi-Gloss or gloss. They have to look good next to other tv's so they don't use matte.

To be more precise, high-end TV's have AR treated glossy panels. It's very different from the usual glossy panels you see on monitors. Some Apple monitors are AR treated, but they're the exception, not the norm.

Is there a list of semi glossy monitors? I hate hate hate MAtte. I can deal with the coating I get on my C6 OLED TV. if pure glossy is very limited, then any list of semi glossy?

There are a few monitors around that are semi-glossy, but they're all pretty low end, AFAIK.
