Just wondering if anti glare protectors work very well and if they impact on the picture quality at all having that extra layer over the screen? is this all companies do when you buy an upgraded anti-glare screen or is it part of the screen? I'm just debating right now whether to go for an anti-glare matte screen or a glossy screen and put a protector on it

Every time I tell a bad joke, I get a glare from my wife. Glare protectors don't protect me at all.

If you buy a device with an anti-glare screen you will have good picture quality, the same as you would have on a regular glossy screen but usually with less colour saturation. However if you put an anti-glare protector on a glossy device you will loose image quality.

so an anti-glare matte screen would keep it's picture quality but loose some colour saturation, hmm tough decision. i wish i could just get an anti glare glossy screen right off the bat without having to add a protector :p i'll have to enquire but if it's not listed i doubt they do it, in that case it'll be the anti-glare matte screen unless that's a bas thing?

The colours on the anti-glare screen will be more natural, thats why matte screens are used a lot for video/photo work because you dont get any "fake" colour.

i just noticed the 22inch tv i'm using atm is at 1360x768 and the screen i'm looking at getting is 1920x1080 so much better resolution. I'm happy with the picture quality on this tv so i should be more than happy with a 1920x1080 :)

IF i was you i would got a glossy screen and get a anti-glare matte screen protector. Why you wont to do this is because that if you decide that you wont to take it off you can But if you get a matte screen you cant remove it as easy as a protector. The other problem that you have with a matte screen is that if it gets scratched your out of luck and money But it you have a protector if it get scratched just spend a couple of dollars and get a new one.
