Hi Iniewski, I apologise, I should have been clearer. My comment was more to "why hasn't this been 5+ years ago instead of the silly gloss screens". I mean they are exact opposites, we've gone from matte to silly gloss to now really good matte :-)
For me personally, I have always been at a total loss to understand why anyone in their right mind would want a glossy LCD panel on a laptop or computer monitor. While watching movies in a totally darkened room there might be an argument for it, given that research dating back the late 70's suggests TV/movies should be watched in a room with "mood" lighting even that seems rather silly.
Is there any information available how Philips's moth-eye nanostructure technology compares with the technology used by Sharp? What would be the additional cost to the customers to avail this feature? :-)
