I bought a Acer Laptop from newegg: Acer aspire 5 A515-52G-5536, In the specs they have mentioned it features an Comfyview 1080 px display.
 Does it refer ONLY to anti-glare Matte screen or anti-glare Matte screen WITH IPS?
Here is the product: (www.)acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.GP5AA.003

    It refers only to anti-glare matte screen.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    I bought the same (almost the same) laptop (ACER NB ASPIRE A515-52G 553L) and I was mislead by the same "comfyview" 'feature'. I thought it meant an IPS screen. Well, it does not.
    Additionally, various international reviews of the same series of laptop A(A515-52G), are mentioning a quite good IPS display. 
    Unfortunately, the one that I bought has a very bad and cheap TN display, with high consumption (reducing battery life) and with very annoying backlight bleeding and viewing angles. Actually the display is so bad that my eyes are hurting and I have a headache! 
    Please note that the official site of ACER does not mention the type of the display, it just gives this misleading 'comfyview' designation, without mentioning if it is a TN or IPS panel. 
    This is not honest ACER! I am very dissatisfied as a costumer.
