You are properly the first one which specifically wants a glossy, glary, annoyingly reflecting screen.

Any good monitore will be anti glare.

I have the 27" version of this monitor and am happy with it.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

These days the difference between the specs of various makers is gradually disappearing. Personally, i would not dwell on it much.
But as an option, look at IIYAMA, 34 inch / 87 cm, res 3440*1440.

A joy to work with.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

So would you say that an iMac Retina Screen ( glass panel and reflective ) is not good?

No-one said the iMac retina was not decent, but it has many other excellent qualities despite it being a glossy panel.

You are buying a low budget 1080p screen and then thinking a glossy finish will make it like an iMac Retina? Nope, it will still be a low resolution 1080p screen stretched to 24" leaving you with an ugly pixellated image to look at day after day.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

I am working on them (iMac) everyday for eight hours and I wish* eternal damnation and everlasting torment to people who engineered them and than force it as an only solution on us. Do you want iMac, than suffer this glossy horror.
*or at least whenever it's sunny outside (like now) or dark and lights in the office are on.

for a super high density screen, there might be a trade-off in having the glossy screen. but i guess if you are forced to use one, you could use some kind of hood around the monitor to mitigate the reflections.

e.g.

...because homes don't have windows, lights or reflections?

Anyway it's clear you have already made your mind up and were not interested in any negative feedback so... enjoy your pixellated, glossy monitor.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

A glossy monitor is a problem and PITA anywhere.
Home, office, cave, outdoor, factory, tunnel, football pitch, etc.

Not on the latest versions, IIRC.
The glass is directly laminated on the display. No space in between.

Makes for less reflection. But I've got a MacMini with a non-glossy display, so I can't say for sure. But they (Apple) certainly claim it.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

Yes, in the open office we can't choose our own dark corner. And as we don't use only digital content the overall light in the room needs to be good. So not much options.
The hood would help a little, but at the moment I am also looking the mirror image of white folders on the shiny black bezel*.

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

Well I now have the Dell S2415H and I can say that I am happy with it. It's a great improvement visually compared to what I had. The typeface could be somewhat darker but I dont seem to be able to make it darker. Well its no " retina screen "but for the price OK

Dell only gave a Euro power cable( plug )I need a swiss one. Would this one be correct. Its 2.1 Amp https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/product...mkabel-5812268

How can you tell you are happy if you haven't been able to plug it in?

Re: Opinions on this PC Philips Monitor

If you have a Mickey Mouse at the monitor side than it is the correct one.

But it could also be this one.

Check the plug, compare, then buy the correct one.
