Default LCD Monitor

I saw a monitor one monitor at a store that had a very bad glare on the screen. I was looking at this monitor on newegg, and was wondering if it would have a glare even though it doesn't have anti-glare written in specs. - Acer AL1917WAbd Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

It should be fine. Glare usually isn't a problem indoors unless you are in a very bright environment. Stores generally have a lot of lights blasting on their display units to make them look shiny and pretty. But in a typical room, you only have one or two sources of light which aren't as bad.

Outdoors can be bad. My DV6000Z has a glossy LCD screen. It's great indoors (delivers vibrant colors and is better than my matte 19" LCD). But outdoors, it's so reflective that it makes viewing almost impossible on a sunny day.

That LCD in the link has a matte screen, so glare/reflection shouldn't be a problem.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth
