Got one this monitor and loves it.
This seems like a great price for a 23" IPS monitor. But the gloss level worries me. I am looking for a glossy screen, but the glass front on this monitor is report by many users to be particularly glossy. Glass is naturally very glossy and reflective. How is it working for you in terms of the gloss level? I am afraid it would be too glossy for me, especially because I don't work in a dark room.

By the way, my Dell work-issued notebook PC has just about the perfect gloss, not grainy/sparkly like some semi-gloss screens, but just enough semi-gloss to take the edge off reflections, while remaining clear. Why can't the monitor makers use this kind of gloss level - it is perfect. Instead we either get sparkly semi-gloss or full on reflective gloss such as this glass front monitor.
