Not being too well informed on the subject of flat screen TV's, I was wondering just how important it is. What kind of difference does it make to the picture or the viewing experience? As I understand, its primarily to cut down on reflections and to increase the viewing angle. So if you're always sat directly in front of the screen, and if there's no light to reflect off the screen's surface, is it really that neccesary? Or does it serve some other purpose that I'm ignorantly overlooking? I'm only asking because in my hunt for a new TV, I've been looking only at flat screen models, and I'm just wondering if such specs are essential to my usage. Cheers.
