    I think there aren't that many options because most people are probably content with the keyboard buttons that control brightness. To me, the only advantage in those menubar ones is that some of them (like the second one you list) allow simulated "dimming" beyond what the backlight is capable of, so you can get some extra low brightness levels before the backlight shuts off entirely. I also personally need another menubar item like I need a hole in the head :)

    Haha wow.

    I mainly need it for my iMac: I have a third-party mechanical keyboard. I bound the brightness increase/decrease to F11 and F12, because for some reason using the shift or Command- variant doesn't work at all. But in some programs, they seem to eat the F11 or F12 input and not effect the brightness slider.

    Try this one. Works with external monitors too.
