I don't own it, so can't comment directly, but at this price it is a good deal. If anyone is unsure how they will do with the glossy screen, you may be able to see it in your local Best Buy firsthand. Although it really depends on your lighting conditions.
As for why do manufacturers seem to either go with heavy grainy AG coating or super glossy ... no idea. There are some in between coatings, which recently has shown up with some IPS displays, but it always seemed odd to me. It also seems odd how we used CRTs with anti reflective coatings + glass, for like a decade, but manufacturers seemed to forget this. They instead go with blinding glossiness, and I have no idea why.
