thanks for the replies. I currently have an NEC 2490wuxi2 and want to give it some rest lol

looking at dell 2412m as it is IPS matte and 16:10 but most $$

also the viewsonic vp2365 LED IPS and matte but 16:9 2nd highest $$

now viewsonic Newsyl mentioned viewsonic vx2370 IPS matte 16:9, difference from above viewsonic appears to be no height adjustment on stand far as I can tell n maybe swivel

there are suggested profiles for the first 2 at tft central but not for the last viewsonic. don't want to have to buy a callibrator if not needed.

batik & digital art, t shirts and more!

Hi Msongs,

The only reason to have reflections on a glossy screen is the wrong lighting source & position.  I can't say that glossy is better, don't have the experience but I have worked only on glossy and I only get a problem with reflections if there is something wrong with the available room lighting.  A quick monitor or lighting position adjustment usually takes care of that... unless in your case everything is fixed...
