Question The Affordable Samsung 39 inch 1080p - Glossy or Matte ?

All the pictures of it, it looks matte.

The only online commentary I found was a Q&A thread at Amazon, someone said it's not matte. Of course, they could have been talking about the bezel, which is glossy for this model ==>

Amazon.com: Samsung UN39FH5000 39-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED TV: Electronics

Amazon has them for $329 some days.

I like Samsung displays. I use them for CAD monitors. Gloss on the display messes it up for me.

Got to be Matte.

Anyway, what do you all think ?

I have been going to local stores to look at demo's. Looks like a mail order only, so far.

Has anybody ever seen this monitor ... or maybe owns & uses one ?

"Samsung UN39FH5000 39-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED TV"

That's the one I'm looking at.

I tried searching on Google, Yahoo search, Bing, Dogpile.

As an aside, one thing I found was lots of pages that contain no information, and lots of links and pseudo-ads. Talk about diluting the value of a click.

My System Specs


I would say any mid-range TV and up has some form of gloss on it since it makes colours more vibrant and offers better clarity.

My guess would be the only matte screens you might find are the BB/FS brands like Insignia and Dynex or other low-end TVs like RCA and such.
