No, mine isn't glossy. But Samsung does make them, they call it a Ultra Clear panel, but it cost more. Personally, I wouldn't spend the extra money, my picture is Great without it.

Look at the specifications. If there not fully listed look for a link to the Manufacturers Product page, Newegg always has a link
