    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 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.

    4 notches down from maximum, this seems about perfect for day and night conditions for me.

    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.

    Damn 1 or 2 from the top is BRIGHT, lol. For me at least. It's like blinding! Mine is usually in the middle at the office and at home.

    Mine is almost exactly like this. But I adjust, as needed.

    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:

    Same for me, when I'm indoors in a fully lit room. On battery, I'm down to the very minimum.

    I have it on max. Makes it impossible to see reflections.

    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

    I use full brightness. I am shocked to see anyone use anything else.
