Which is better: the traditional glossy screen or that newer matte screen?
Thanks a lot. It'll be a laptop so the chances of having an environment with glare is likely, BUT I do a lot of digital art/painting, so I didn't want to compromise that use by having some screen that doesn't allow one to see everything right. I wish I had the luxury of two monitors!If its a desktop PC and you have a glare free environment then go with the glossy screen.
f its a laptop to be used anywhere you go or a PC in a lighted windowed environment then go with the matte. Glare can be distracting and can tire your eyes over time as they try to adjust to see the screen clearly.
If you wear polarized sunglasses then maybe glossy is okay but you should check as overall screen brightness may decrease.
In my work environment, I have one screen that's glossy and one that matte. I prefer the glossy and try to keep reflection glare to a minimum. Having both, I'm able to switch windows back and forth as needed. This wasn't by design its just what monitors they had at the time when I needed a second monitor.
That's cool....something like this, I suppose you're talking about:I have a glossy laptop screen and just bought a matte filter that I can put on and off when I please (however I prefer the matte screen way more then the glossy).
