I'm planning to buy an HP Zbook Studio G8 with the IPS display - 3840 x 2160, 120 Hz, 600 nits.

Where I live there are no shops where I can see this laptop before I pay for it (I've confirmed this with HP salespeople). Instead of reading 100+ reviews written by/for gamers, I would like to talk to photographers, since I'm a photographer myself. I would like to ask those of you who have this display what your experiences are. Specifically: is the display matte or glossy? Do you have any problems with reflections in the display? If I see a mirror image of my face in every photo I try to edit I will not be a happy customer.

Might want to swing on over to the PC section.  I have heard that the screen is very very good.  As for glossy, no, you will not see a mirror image every time you try to edit.  I only run glossy screens.  The only time you see a reflection would be a direct light source shining at the screen behind you. Anything else is a non issue.

I prefer the visuals using glossy screens.
