hey everyone,

I'm having a really difficult time finding glossy screen monitors...is it just me or everything in Matte finish?? I've tried searching at local stores as well as online but haven't been able to find a good selection...

I'm looking to buy an 21.5inch iMac in the coming weeks and I'd like to pick up an additional screen for dual monitor set up...ideally i'd want another apple display but $1000...I can't afford that...haha...so I'm looking for any other external monitor..but i'd like it to be glossy as well...I don't want the imac on a glossy screen and then an external as a matte...(eye strain?)...anyways..I'm looking for another 21.5inch Glossy LED screen...does anyone know ANY place I could find them at??

Local stores...online websites....past experiences with anyone who's bought one...PLEASE provide input!

thank you very much everyone!!

Check out the line of BenQ monitors at their web site. They have some of the best displays both in glossy and matte. Not inexpensive but not as expensive as the Apple Cinema display. LINK

Yes, very good quality. Many of our members have used them and they come highly recommended. It's always good though when it comes to choosing a monitor to see it in person. Try to find a seller in your local area and check them out in person if possible.

I also forgot to mention that Dell sells some very high quality monitors both matte and glossy. You can see them at their web site. Dell

I'm writing this to you on a BenQ monitor, I've been very satisfied with it.
