Curious. At what brightness do you have your new LED screens? Anyone use it at full brightness?

Full almost always. Then again, I almost always have it plugged in. ;) When I know I'll be away from power for a while, I'll drop it down to the minimum or one above that.

i tend to never go full out on any setting...so i have mine like this, which is already very good for my tastes..

I change mine a lot throughout the day. Definitely depends on the lighting. It's usually at about 90% unless I am sleepy. Then it gets turned down a lot :p

15" LED backlit, 4-5 bars from the top. Higher than that it's too bright and gives me a headache.

I usually let the annoying sensor under the speaker grill figure it out for me, but I usually have it around the middle, unless Im outdoors.

Man everyone on here keeps that thing high. I prefer to keep it a little darker about 1/3 from the lowest setting. Yet then again I like having the extra battery time!!! :):D:cool:

It hurts my eyes when its up full (matte screen), it is just so damn bright!

I use it about between 3 and 6 notches off full. Depends how light it is in the room.

I let the auto brightness set it self for whatever room I'm in and if I don't like it I change it and/or if i like where it's at I turn it off until the next location change.

Daytime I use 6 or 7 notches up, so about halfway. During the evening I use it 4 notches up.

Some of you guys should give your eyes a rest. :p
