Does anyone know if the Sony KDL-xxEX640 line has a matte screen or a glossy bright screen? I have checked numerous websites and even called Sony and can't receive a definite answer. There are no stores in my area that carry it yet.

One thing in common with the EX series through the years is their semi-matte
screens.

I have not seen this model yet.

I have two EX523's which are the 2011 models. They have what I would consider a matte screen, which is exactly what I want in the 640. I have been holding out buying the 640 because of this lack of information and not being able to actually see one.

My TV is a 2010 EX700 and it's semi-matte. One of the main reasons I chose it.

The 2010 EX500 is also semi-matte. As well as the EX700 replacement, the 710.

I've seen the EX640 at Best Buy and it's semi-matte. The bezel is also semi-matte as it has a texture applied to it.

Its semi matte. But I suggest you buy something else because the screen uniformity is horrible.

I have seen the EX640 and it's half glossy half matte, but more matte than glossy :>

Only brand inside a Best Buy that was truly matte were the Sharps. I do dislike glossy alot.

There is an official EX640 thread. You might check there for additional comments. I love mine.
