So that comes down to opinion, experience, and perhaps varying levels of distinct observation. It also appeared that people with less than perfect eyesight did not observe the phenomenon.
Not sure how many but it seems like more than 1 person has recently gotten a replacement LG that had seen the sparkle before and now had an LG which they report has no sparkle. One of the theories of the cause of the sparkle on the new screens is that they just took old 9200 screens which had the sparkle caused by the antiglare coating and added the gloss coating and used these in the 9300s and XPSs. In which case it seems logical they would run out of these eventually and start using screens with only the gloss coating and not the additional antiglare coating. So this may be happening now.
The statement from Dell and others that the effect is standard on all screens is pure bullshit. I buy 1 or 2 new laptops every year. Never seen it before. When shopping I spend plenty of time looking at every laptop in several stores. Never seen it before. They may all have something you could call sparkle, but only the Dell 9300 has had anything that proves to reduce the quality and and viewability that could be called sparkle. My Treo 650 doesn't sparkle like it, my 30inch LCD HDTV doesn't sparkle like it, my 19inch LCD monitor doesn't sparkle like it, my Sony A170 17 inch gloss screen notebook doesn't sparkle like. My satin sheets sparkle a lot like it, though. Please folks, wait a while before posting to NBF after consuming crack.
Deutch, where is your house, I'd like to see your non-sparkly LG.

17 inch True Life Wide Screen UXGA for Inspiron 9300
It is probably in the Invoicing Solutions section, which of course, is down right now.
