So, that's two recommendations (with qualifications) for the high-contrast screens. I have never really looked at these. Since the main issue I've seen in high-ambient light conditions is the contrast (blacks), this might be well worth it. I'll have to look around and see if I can rent one in the area for one run, just to try it out before I buy.
Stewart Filmscreen used to have a demo at trade shows with a small 'room' with one half of the screen a standard matte finish and the other a high contrast surface of slightly lower gain.  The high contrast screen had not only lower black levels but colors against a dark background appeared brighter.  The downside was that white was not as white, so not necessarily as beneficial for viewing Word documents or Excel spreadsheets.

Not as beneficial, bt was it detrimental? Was the overall readability about the same as the standard, or was readability higher on the standard side?
