my matte tv is still too glossy!

my vizio matte LED screen is still too glossy! Not as bad as glossy displays but I can see the light when watching tv. When TV is off it's like looking at a dark mirror. My old LCD tv doesn't reflect even at direct sunlight, why don't they make matte display like they used to? I wouldn't mind sacrificing bit of quality for less glare!

You already did sacrifice quality....you bought a Vizio. I think the only one making matte screens anymore is Sharp. What difference does it make when it's off?

I'm the opposite I'll take quality and deal with a glossy screen.

but what's the point of having great quality if you can't see anything?

When I said deal with it if the reflections are that bad that it interferes with my viewing I would remedy the cause of the reflections. Not much else that you can do about it.

Last matte screens were produced by Sharp in 2010ish.

Epson 8350 / Panasonic AX-200u / Optoma Graywolf 92" / Draper Luma 92"
Samsung 51F8500 / Panasonic P50ST60 / Vizio P502ui-B1E / Sony 50W700B

As prior poster mentored, the solution is to remedy the cause of the reflections. Order some blackout blinds, wood blinds, blackout curtains, etc. I went with wood blinds for my basement entertainment room and those worked well. Not too expensive either, maybe $80 a piece. Blackout curtains are the cheapest solution, but they were all too long for my basement windows.

Sony XBR-75Z9D + Samsung 78JS9500 + LG 65OLEDC6P + 55EC9300 + 55EA8800 OLED

MartinLogan Motion 60XT/50XT/FX/FX2/4 + Seaton Submersive HP+
Denon X6300h + Oppo BDP-103D + Xbox One S
Monitor Audio Silver 10's + Silver Center + CP-CT380's + 2x HSU ULS-15 MK2
