The increased black depth and colour saturation from the glossy finish is a good thing, IMO.

The HP unit that I looked at was , I believe, a 2207. I don't know, maybe the glossiness was exacerbated by the glare of the frame. I just didn't like the look of it at the time. Probably not a good way to decide on a purchase though. Thanks for your input.
