Question about a FHD screen

Product Name: Pavilion
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The specs for a Pavilion laptop screen are:

 

15.6" diagonal FHD IPS WLED-backlit touch screen (1920 x 1080)

 

Does this screen have a glossy, anti-glare, or matte finish?

Re: Question about a FHD screen

Hello BigStereo60,

 

This is the most I could find about it:

15.6-in, full high-deƭnition (FHD), white light-emitting (WLED), BrightView (1920×1080), slim-Ưat (3.2- mm), UWVA, eDP, 220 nits, 16:9 ultra wide aspect ratio, TouchScreen display assembly

 

And 2 other documents which don't state much:

https://pcb.itcs.hp.com/dc/api/edatasheet/ww-en/16677121/pdf/1GK61AV.pdf

 

Although I wasn't able to provide an accurate answer, as mentioned above, I do want to remind you that there is absolutely no way this laptop has a matte display, simply because of its touchscreen. In terms of the antiglare, this is an advertising tactic. So this laptop has a glossy display and technically HP can slap on the name anti-glare to entice consumers. Of course, there may be actual technology but every laptop display has anti-glare coating to some extent.

 

Hope this helps,

Eddy

Re: Question about a FHD screen

Hello BigStereo60,

 

Considering that the laptop has a touchscreen, I can confirm that it cannot be matte. Most screens these days are designed to be anti-glare but glossy screens will have a considerably higher amount of glare.

 

Hope this answers your question,

Eddy

Re: Question about a FHD screen

Thanks for the reply!  That narrows things down a bit but it still doesn't tell me if that screen is glossy or anti-glare.

Hello BigStereo60,

 

If you provide me with the model name or product number of the laptop, I can dig a bit deeper, but I think my previous reply wasn't detailed enough.

 

Matte vs antiglare v.s glossy isn't technically a legitimate comparison. It's Glossy (known to have anti-glare technology) vs Matte. And since the laptop has a touchscreen, the display is already confirmed to be glossy. Anti-glare is just a marketing term manufacturers use to convince consumers that the glossy screen has reduced glare.

 

Hope this clarifies things,

Eddy
