    Do they sell monitors with no blacklight? Like the Kindle and other eBook readers. I get a headache from blacklight glare!

    Any ideas? :confused:

    Nope. Not LCD monitors in any case. Reflective LCDs went out of style about 16 years ago.

    Xerox and other 'e-paper' displays such as used int he Kindle haven't seen the light of day as computer monitors. They are slow to refresh, and are black and white or very limited colour range. Fujitsu and others have demonstrated technology, but haven't brought anything to market.

    Maybe not quite 16 years...remember the Gameboy Advance (or Gameboy Color for that matter):)

    It's possible that an LED backlight might not cause you as many problems. Not sure though really.

    Could be the resolution or some sort of flicker that is causing the headaches?
