I am looking to buy a 24" monitor. Sometimes I watch movies, but mostly it will be for document editing and programming (Visual Studio). I have found a product I like, and it has an 'LED backlit' model and a standard model for about the same price.
I have read that backlit displays have advantages, but could they be too bright/high contrast for working with text?
(Note I'm not looking for shopping recommendations - just advice on how 'backlit' monitors display text.)
