I recently bought a 22" (LG) TFT to replace my old 17" CRT monitor. The very first thing I noticed was how bright it was. I reduced the brightness from 100 to just 20 and toned down the gammma and contrast. Then I opened my videocard settings and reduced the brightness there as well. I used this screen for a few days in a dimply-lit environment and my eyes are really sore. I had no problem with the CRT in that same spot.
Are these things supposed to run in bright environments only or are my eyes just sensitive?
