The glossy screens look really bad under flourescent lighting, but it's honestly not a big deal when you get it home. I have a Sony MFM-HT205 w/ a glossy screen and it doesn't bother me at all. Actually, unless you shine a light directly on the thing, you can't even tell it's glossy unless you turn it off. The increased black depth and colour saturation from the glossy finish is a good thing, IMO.
