    I can understand their appeal when it comes to specs relative to price, but that reflectivity would annoy me. I can understand why you'd need to wait until evening. Stray light isn't ideal on any display really.

    Less then ideal. If you can avoid them, do so.

    You don't want a Glossy screen! You do want another wide gamut to get close to the other display(s). Maybe you can find the old NEC P221W or go for their entry level SpectraView.
