This seems to say that it is semi-glossy - this would be completely okay with me since I'm sort of curious about Gloss.

What do you guys think of Gloss vs Matte and is the Asus G751JT semi gloss or matte?

It is a soft matte display. It doesn't have reflections like a glossy display but it is not as matte as the older TN panels on G75 (the grainy ones). To be honest, I really like this display and it really feels better than the old ChiMei from my G75VW.
I am for the matte side but this is just a subjective thing. Glossy isn't bad but they both have advantages and disadvantages, and for me, the advantages of a matte display are more suited since I tend to stare for hours in a row in front of the display. And I'm not talking about gaming, I'm talking about AutoCAD projects and many excel tabels...

BTW: I have a G751JY, but I don't think that the panels are different. They should both have an IPS LG display.

Is it semi-gloss a bit like this? The section called semi-gloss (http://puu.sh/dsGmN/c3858bbbf2.png)

I didn't know about this new kind of panel :D. Yes! It definitely is a semi-glossy panel. I saw that it is more prone to reflections when the screen is off, but I just thought that it was only in my imagination. Now that I know these things, I am pretty glad to have this kind of panel because it is better at reproducing colors and at the same time it doesn't show reflections in a normal environment. I wasn't actually planing to game outside with this laptop anyways.
