I love this monitor. I switched from a dell u2711 and HP ZR2740w. Those both had great uniformity / image quality but the aggressive anti glare coating was a deal killer. Its really ridiculous - anything with a white background looks dusty or grainy. I could not stand it because I do tons of text work. The AG is so bad in fact, that it detracts from image quality. Small font black text on a white background is somewhat blurry due to the glimmer from the AG coating. You can diminish the effect by upping the brightness, but then your color is screwed up, blacks will be grey. Also if its a heavily lighted room there's just no way to not notice the glimmering on white backgrounds. The AG coating is atrocious on u2711/zr2740w. Now this monitor looks *perfect*. Whites are *white*. It has a light AG coating that is perfect. Not overbearing like the other IPS panels. I have heard some users have issues with backlight bleeding but my unit has none. Just in case though, buy from a retailer with a good return policy. I love this thing to death.
