Wonder if the type of screen affects the accuracy of photos displayed?
Which one is preferred and why?

I have 2 new mac that has reflective screens. I can say : it causes discomfort. Glaring to my eyes (especially in the afternoon) even after i get the a matt filter over it.

I prefer the matt and will go back to the matt if i can. For accuracy , there is no much difference to me. (There is some but small to me)

The reason I started this poll was becos I just got a Macbook Pro and it has reflective screen too. Was trying to decide between getting a normal screen protector or matt/anti-glare one. I decided to get the matt filter as I too thought it would be glaring to my eyes if stared at for a long time. But I do like the look of graphics and movies on the glossy screen... looks more vibrant and contrasty. I think there must be some good reason that Apple chose to make their computers' screens glossy. Maybe because images have more punch.

The only reason I'll get a reflective screen is if I can sell it at a higher price, which is never.

Luckily desktop monitors have more choices.
