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...


You don't always get to choose your light and position.

I hate glossy screens.  I think they contribute to eye strain, but that is only my opinion.
