    I know the topic on matte vs. glossy on here has been beaten to death but I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some insight into how the screens compare to Sony. I'm currently looking at the NP9170 and am trying to debate if I want to go with the 90% NTSC color gamut screen or just stick to the stock panel that comes with the system.

    I don't do TOO much gaming and am basically buying the system as a desktop replacement that's somewhat portable but I will likely be watching and/or editing HD video casually on occasion.

    Cheers!

    im on my second clevo now and previously had glossy.
    ive got the 15" of your version with the standard matte screen and its ruddy lovely. very bright vibrant colours and great for gaming. tbh i cant see how the 72%/95% gammut screens can get much better but i guess they can.

    Screenshots or pictures actually don't do much good due to needing to rely on the monitor being used to view those pictures. For screenshots, they don't do any good since they aren't taking a screenshot of what the monitor is displaying but rather what they should be displaying. The only real way to see the difference is going to be to see them in person. Many users have commented, like Mr DJ, that default matte screen is awesome. It's likely to be all you need for just about anything outside of professional photography use in which case I'd make the plunge and opt for the 95% screen.

    as Derek said a picture of a screen just doesnt do it justice but this is the difference between my old clevo glossy and new clevo standard matte.

    OP - are you looking at factors to compare/contrast in relation to image quality between the two manufacturers? Or are you looking for a Sony matte (or glossy) v.s. Sager matte (or glossy) quality sort of comparison?

    Agreed. Question is too generic to be answered.

    Anyway, I think Sager's screen manufacturer is Chimei.

    I've a question.
    Im under the impression the glossy screens are easier to clean, whereas matte tends to clog a little with tiny particles, making it harder to clean and taking longer to wipe out.
    Is there some truth in that or am I just imagining things (again)?
