    Does anyone know what the default setting for brightness is?

    Just this morning I noticed that my 23" was not quite as bright as my 20" iMac screen. I had previously thought it was brighter than my iMac. I went to adjust the brightness and it was already at full brightness.

    Again, the default setting and is there some sort of monitor diagnosis software I can run to make sure nothing is wrong? Thanks in advance.

    They're not supposed to be as bright. The iMac screens are brighter.

    When the 20" Front Row iMacs came out they had better displays in them than the 20" ACDs - better contrast ratios and brighter. I assume this might the case with the 23" ACD as well, in which case, this should be normal. I think Apple did a silent refresh to the ACDs though and upgraded some of their specs a couple weeks ago IIRC.

    My 23" Cinema HD is so bright I have to keep it turned down 2 notches. Not sure about defaults...

    the 23" ACD has 270 cd/m2 brightness and 400:1 contrast.

    the 20" intel imac has 280 cd/m2 brightness and 800:1 contrast.

    I believe the default is full brightness...

    my ACD is very very bright, i have it set two bars from minimum most of the time, then again i bought it last week, it may of had a silent upgrade, but it seems brighter than my friends imac g5 (the x600XT non front row rev).
