    I have a 27" Auria EQ276W, its a cheap display that I believe uses basically the same panel as the 27" Apple Thunderbolt displays.

    Anyway the Achilles heel on this monitor is the fact that even with the brightness set at 0 it's way too bight(it's been documented by multiple users)


    What type of options do I have on getting this display at a lower brightness output? Spyder Pro or can I do this from OSX?

    Have you tried tuning down other settings on the monitor? like gamma etc?

    Thats the issue...I don't have gamma available to control. Just basic brightness, color temp...etc. I ran SpyderPro 4 on it which is giving me a decent color profile but its still too bright.

    Here's a chart at how bright this display is

    Its min brightness is very high at 146

    Have you tried the color calibration on the OS in Displays? I wish I could remember the program I used on my MBAir when I get home from the office I will find out for you
