    I'm finding half way on my ipad 3 is pretty much perfect. The apple stores have the brightness pegged on every unit and even if you turn it down to compare after a few minutes it goes right back up. Just curious where everyone else finds comfortable?

    ~40-50% auto or ~20% auto off since I mainly use it indoors.

    I always keep mine @ 100% unless I wake up in bed then I adjust it to my eyes liking. And I still get approx. 10hrs

    No. :s

    I've always had it like that since the two. Maybe cuz I don't wear my glasses.

    I just lowered it.. Even @ 50% it feels like I will strain my eyes. Each their own. Interesting how lo some of you have it tho

    ~ 40-50% at all times. Not necessarily for my reason, but just trying to help the environment by reducing how much energy this thing needs xD.

    Too bright hurts my eyes after looking at it for long periods of time anyways.

    Looks like around 60%. I found turning it down decreased the heat output quite a bit. I kept my original iPad at 100% all the time. Seems like the clarity of the screen allows me to keep the brightness down.

    80% with auto off on new iPad. Not sure how people keep it at 50%. I always see fools with iPhones that are pitch black.

    About 45% for normal indoor use with a light bump in brightness if I'm watching video.

    40%-50%

    I can't believe some people use 100% all the time. I would only use 100% of I'm in direct sunlight.

    ~30%. I mostly use it at home. Any brighter is too much. I don't understand how anyone can use 100%, unless they're in bright sunlight. It feels like staring at the sun...:eek:
