XL2411Z minimum brightness?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I seem to have problems finding this information with google. Does anyone know the answer? I'm planning to buy a new monitor and must know that the new one can be set as low as XL2411Z.

I had one and I think the minimum is around 100 cd/m. Its quite a bright monitor and for me at least it was too bright even at the minimum setting it supported.

You can make the 2411Z as dark as you want....even so dim that you won't be able to see the screen on a bright day, anymore.

You can reduce the brightness effect slightly further by simply lowering the color temperature and adjusting gamma.
If it's STILL too bright, as long as you are not using 60hz, enable blur reduction...this will REALLY plummet the brightness.
If you are using 100+ hz refresh rate,, you can drop the brightness even more by lowering the persistence setting. 1.0ms persistence should be should be dim enough even for those who absolutely hate bright monitors. If that's too bright, drop it down to 0.5ms persistence, which is the lowest setting in the blur busters' blur reduction utility. Most people will find this too dark unless you are in a pitch black room.

You can go even lower than that through the service menu, by setting the strobe length to 0.250ms or the lowest setting: 0.167ms (this makes the blur reduction effect even stronger than in the Eizo, but well...good luck seeing the screen!)
