Mine is also very glossy. I had read some things saying it wasn't but I agree that it may be different for other sizes. My Toshiba that it replaced is clearly a matte screen and this is very different. I noticed yesterday when it was off and I was walking by, it was almost like looking at myself in glass, it was that reflective and clear. I didn't notice the light bleed that much in the corner and on the right side when watching a movie that filled the screen, even on dark scenes. Last night I watched the Matrix in a dark room and with the letterbox on the top and bottom, the light on the right was very noticeable. Maybe because I know it is there, my eyes are drawn to it but it was distracting. It also showed a very small amount of bleeding on the right side going all the way down the screen, it was much less than the corner though.
Today I picked up a 50" Vizio e500i A1. This is also direct lit and so far looks pretty good. I tried the Cnet calibration settings but it was way too dark. I don't have a lot of direct sunlight coming in, drapes are drawn on the south/west side of the house, but there was a lot of light still from the kitchen. Maybe once it is dark tonight those settings would work better. I used the WOW disc and the picture looks pretty good right now in daytime. I'm anxious to check it tonight and see how it looks, will also calibrate movie mode for night time bluray viewing. This screen is definitely more matte, way less reflection.
