Default Looking for LCD monitors with reduced eye strain.

Any brand is fine although (Samsung, and LG preferred from personal experience).
Looking for a LCD monitor that doesn't give eye bad time.
Also the size should be bigger than 19''
Thanks for your help.

My System Specs


Well I don't agree that all LCDs are all the same I do agree that some people seem to think 300 cd/m2 is what everyone needs to be looking at on an LCD. If I put my LCD up to 300 cd/m2 output I think I would burn out my retinas in about 35 seconds. So yes try turning down the brightness. Depending on the LCD I would suggest a Spyder calibration tool to help you get the right brightness set.

What's your budget?

Get a 37" and bolt it to the wall about 4-5 feet away.

That's what I did and my eyes are much better off.
