One thing I've heard about LEDs in general is they send a direct beam of light directly at your eyes if they're pointed at them while other light sources just scatter light in all directions, sort of (kind of like a flame). So staring at an LED monitor is probably like staring at a bunch of LEDs lamps. I don't know.

this is BAD information dude

PWM pulse wave modulation backlight controlled monitors pulse with anything less than 100% brightness and add into the neurological effects this user is experiences

the blue light produced by led monitors is also a danger and could very well be the trigger to your symptoms OP

Read through the thread. I was already corrected.

I am suffering from eye pain and migranes for over a year now, pretty much since I bought the VG248QE. I bought this monitor as soon as it came out and just came across this thread.
I've been losing my mind in the past year, going to so many doctors to figure the cause of these headaches, not even one I suspected the monitor.
My eye sight went to crap, my eyes lost the ability to focus on objects, I lost any passion for video games... all this for what? trying to be a better gamer.
I'm gonna get rid of this monitor ASAP.

If the migraines started after you got the monitor then maybe that is the cause but I wouldn't jump to conclusions so quickly. Test it out a little bit, and if you do find that the monitor is the issue then try one of BenQ's flicker-free monitors if you really want a 120hz+ monitor. I think all of their newer 120/144hz models come with it now and they actually have a page dedicated to Eye-care monitors now which is awesome (http://www.benq.com/microsite/eye-care-monitors/ff.html). When I started this thread 1.5 years ago they definitely did not have this page. I've had the XL2420TE for about 15-16 months now and have not experienced what I did when I first got the VG248QE.

Side note: One thing that would concern me is the loss of eye focus. I would get dizzy and have trouble focusing (which is part of the migraine) but I would notice all effects start to subside slowly as I stayed away from the monitor. From your wording it sounds like your loss of focus is constant / permanent which is alarming.

Hi all,

Interesting Read which I found while googling if this particular monitor was flickers free or not, I also suffer with migraines and other visual symptoms made worse after a motorcycle accident, ie kaleidoscope effect or zigzags lines inability to focus sometimes. I have been to the opticians who couldn't find anything but reffered me to the hospital to see an opthamologist who could only find an issue with dry eyes but surgested I have classic migraines my doctor agrees but says I just have to put up with.

I never really thought about the monitor perhaps being the issue until recently, I have an old ACER S243HL and was wondering if this might be the root cause? ( well apart from to much gaming etc lol ) all that said I would like to find a monitor that is good for my eyes I've been looking at the benq monitors as they apparently have eye care etc. I quite like the look of the XL2430T It says that it is flicker free but someone mentioned earlier if its not listed as ZERO flicker its probably not can someone confirm this? I also like the Asus PG278Q ROG the new gysnc monitor but it's made by asus so I can only presume it would suffer with similar issues talked about in this thread.

Can anyone recommend a good monitor that is easy on the eye and has no flicker and is ok for gaming.

I even considered IPS although I'm to clued up on IPS I know they have a higher refresh time but do they also suffer with flicker or would they be better for people with this kind of sensitivity?

I spend to much time infront of the pc and my eyes are obviously important to me so I would like the best monitor that is good for my vision if thats even possible lol

One more quick thing I currently have my monitor on 30% brightness 50% contrast, colour temp warm, as I have no idea how to calibrate a monitor are there any good guides, I could follow to setup my monitor the best possible for my eyes or is it just user prefrence?

Thanks
Fubsy

I just bought the monitor. Hate the flickering while watching videos, but got it watchable by doing the following:

In the monitors settings, set the following: Image -> Trace Free to 0

Hope it helps.

Why did you bump a 9 month old thread to say that?
This thread is *dead*
And tracefree 0 doesn't do anything about flickering It just turns off overdrive. It has nothing to do with the PWM circuit.
