The most interesting comment on the debate Matte VS Glossy screen I’ve heard so far:
I am surprised to see how few people have noticed the massive flaw in the non-glare concept.
With glossy, when there is a glare from behind me, I can rotate the monitor a teeny bit and be rid of the thing.
Not so with matte. For the light impacts a farrrr greater area of the screen, creating a sort of fog rather than that one little glare that could be pushed aside.
On top of the matte actually creating MORE GLARE (only of a different kind), the colors are kaka comparatively, especially during the day.
Glossy: iPad, iPhone. Nobody is complaining much about those, ya know.
Where I will agree is in the manufacturers being deaf, in this case giving people a better screen (on laptops) than their own sense would request.
Strangely though, it has become impossible to find a glossy screen on an external monitor, all while 99% of laps ARE glossy. Weird people.
