It's OK but not amazing. The screen seems to have a purplish coating that reminds me of the anti-glare coating you see on eyeglasses.
In my high-ambient-light living room the reflections are still quite visible.
I'm upgrading from an RPTV that had the screens re-stacked so the lenticular was on the outside and the protective (glare) screen on the inside. This was by far the best anti-glare solution I've ever come across. The lenticular screen is super diffuse and even under direct sunlight wouldn't show any noticeably reflections.
Overall though, I'd still take a somewhat glare-y plasma over an RPTV any day.
thanks for the reply. I thought about re stacking the screens but never got up the nerve to do it. On the up side it will make the reflections on the Plasma seem much better when compared to my unmodified RPTV!
How about the 6UY? Anyone care to comment about how good or bad the reflections are on their plasma?
The screen on a RPTV is made up of layers. The outer most layer is used to protect the more delicate screen that the picture is projected onto. That way when your kids start fighting next to the TV they don't rip the screen.
The problem with this last layer which they call the anti glare screen is that it is highly reflective and in my case does a great impersonation of a mirror
Restacking means that they take this outer layer and put it on the inside so that it does not reflect the ambient light. In some cases people actually take off the screen all together (no kids allowed near the TV at this point)
