Unfortunately I dont have the luxury to go try out a bunch of monitors in my personal workspace. I've seen these displays at the apple store and they look fantastic in the super bright room. My room obviously is not that bright, however I would say that the room lighting is "normal" compared to most other offices I have seen. I have an overhead light, desk lamp, and some window lighting. The thing is... it strains the hell out of my eyes! I dont know if an anti glare monitor like a Dell Ultrasharp will be any better but I dont have the financial luxury to purchase one to compare. I've read about bias lighting but I have a desk lamp behind my monitor and it doesnt do much to help. Also, I am not completely dim-witted. I have calibrated my monitor and adjust the brightness when necessary, however my work requires full brightness due to color accuracy necessity.
