Also, anyone had problems with the AG coating on Dells? I've heard that it is particularly aggressive/noticable on the u2711, and some people go as far as major warranty-voiding surgery to remove it and convert their screen to glossy.
I traded my U2211H because of the anti-glare coating. Photographs and video looked great. I really wanted to like it, but any text on a white background was almost intolerable to me because of the AG coating. I think the small dot pitch on the 21.5" makes the effect worse.

It's not that I'm just being overly picky, white documents and forums were actually very difficult for me to read. I've heard that wearing glasses might make the effect worse, maybe that's partially why it bothers some people so much more than others.

I'm looking for information about modern Viewsonic anti-glare coatings, and if they're light or heavy. Basically I'm trying to avoid any noticeable grain/rainbow sparkles over a white background. VG2436wm-LED for example. Anyone know?

I think many screen/camera/eyeglass cleaners are just isopropyl alcohol and water.

Both Dell and Apple have documentation that recommend using Isopropyl alcohol 50%, so that should be the cheapest recommended solution if a plain microfiber or water isn't enough. Both companies warn against using pure isopropyl alcohol though, so just make sure it's diluted.

For me a plain microfiber cloth is usually enough on it's own, but I try to avoid websites that cause me to projectile vomit.

My Samsung BX2440 has presets for Warm, Cool, and Normal. I wish they'd use the actual number like 6500k, or at least explain it in the manual. Does anyone know what the presets really are?

edit: I found a program called "Natural Color Pro" that's free for Samsungs. So that seems to have helped, in case anyone has a Samsung monitor and doesn't want to pay for a colorimeter. http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/...p_download.html
