Default 25''+ 1920x1200 GLOSSY monitor???

I'm looking for a new Monitor for my computer. My rig is in a bat cave, so I LOVE the glossy displays. Can anyone recomend a decent GLOSSY display thats 1200rez ? 25''+

I wish they would list the Gloss screen vs Matte screen on the specs...

O yeah my price range is around 300 bucks.

Newegg.com - ASUS VW266H Black 25.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers w/ component connector - LCD Monitors

Little over your price range, but after the rebate you should be fine. That is about as close to 300 bucks as you can get for that size and resolution.

I bought this about 2 months ago and it's worked great. It takes a little while to wake from sleep mode, but other than that it's a good monitor for the price ($340)

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG TOC T260HD Rose Black 25.5" 5ms HDMI Widescreen HDTV Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 10000:1(1000:1) Build in TV Tuner & Dolby Digital Surround Sound - LCD Monitors

I don't think you're going to find a very good monitor that size for less than $300.

That Asus one isn't either. None on Newegg I saw fit the full criteria.

Ah, good point. Then I guess the closest OP can come is one of those or the Samsung 24" Syncmaster at 1920x1200 that's glossy.
Newegg's out of stock but I think Provantage has it for $340

^ there it is

What determines how glossy you need it to be? In the one I posted people even complained about it being too glossy. Is the 25in incredibly important? or can it be a little less? As long as the resolution is correct.

The ASUS monitor you posted is Matte
There is not % of glossyness.
It's either glossy, or it's matte.
There is no in between.

I recommend the 2433, looks slick and works well for the price, going to get a second soon. Beware the buzzing though with lowered brightness, only goes away using nvida or ati settings.
