In fact it was by far the least reflective panel I have seen, almost like the old LCD panels.
You could not see any clear reflections, at best only some ambient light. Are we talking about the same model, or are there multiple configurations perhaps?
That's surprising. Well, it is not as glossy as for example Samsung's LED models, but our W805B sample was definitely not a matte LCD panel.
Which size did you check out in the store?
I've seen the 40 and 50" models - both have a largely unreflective panel. No, it's not really like the old LCD's but its the closest to them I've seen.
To be more specific - on my W905 and the majority of Sony/Samsung high end TV's in recent years, you can practically see your face on the glass. On this one you cannot see any specific reflection, just ambient light.
Samsung makes some mid-range TV's (like the f6500) with a "semi-glossy" finish that still more reflective than the w805B.
In case the location makes a difference, I'm talking about European models.
