Are the new HP monitors glossy or matte?

Do the new HP monitors, the 2311x, 2511x, etc, have glossy or matte screens?  *crosses fingers for glossy*

Hi,

 

Sorry, No, 2311x, and 2511x do not have Glassy Look;

 

Only Following Monitors have that (striking exterior, glossy black bezel):

Thank You.

I am looking at my 2511X and the screen is definitely glossy. Cannot comment on the 2311 as I do not own one.

BrightView = glossy anti-glare = matte

Re: Are the new HP monitors glossy or matte?

Perhaps I am missing something. I have a new 2511x and the screen is decidedly glossy and reflective. Is "Brightview"  an electronic circuit to reduce reflections ? If so how to you activate it? If it is automatic it is more advertising than true.

 

Now I bought the 2511 knowing it was glossy and I am most please with it. I appreciate the rich deep colors and contrast but if lights are on behind it they definitely reflect . Windows would do the same. I have now read the online manual and  no means of turning on "Brightview" were evident.

 

Mine is glossy, rich, contrasty and I am very fond of it. My last matte monitor seems dull by comparison.

Brightview is a panel feature, there is nothing to turn on or off.

"BrightView" literally means "glossy" in marketese.
