Monitor Settings for Sore Eyes

Sitting on the PC for over 12 hrs a day, 7 days a week can take a toll on your eyes…

I would love to follow the 20-20-20 rule for relaxing my eyes, but sadly its too much…

So i do the only thing that i can…

Change the Calibration of my Monitor so that my eyes don’t blast and yes, as a Rule, i wash my eyes every time i visit the restroom..

Ok so what i wanted to say today is that on mormal days i keep the setting on my 2 HP ZR2240w monitors as:

Contrast: 25

Brightness: 20

But today even that was too much and so i went into other options and changed :

1. Image Control -> Sharpness : 4 to 5

2. the Color -> I changed it from Standard 6500K to Custom RGB wherein i kept R,G and B as 235 (down from default 255)

This has given my eyes relief for now…


There are a lot of links online that give variety of adivse. But i found these 2 to be helpful:



Picture Settings in my LCD

This is the LCD i use:

The way i use it is to connect it to my laptop [HP Probook 4510s] via RGB Port {my HDMI Port doesn’t work}.

The what i do is that in the Windows 7 Projector Menu, i set it to “Projector only”. This way even though my TV’s resolution is 1366 x 768p, same as my lappy, i can increase it to 1600*1200, from the screen resolution menu…

Ok coming back to the topic,

  1. To watch movies, i like the Movie setting {in TV’s Picture Menu}, which is:
  • Backlight : 30
  • Contrast: 90
  • Brightness: 50
  1. To surf and read stuff i use custom setting which is proportional to {half to be exact} the in built Standard Setting of {70,100,50}:
  • Backlight : 35
  • Contrast: 50
  • Brightness: 25
  1. I’ve created another custom setting that’s half of the cinema mode, to use when my eyes are tired:
  • Backlight : 35
  • Contrast: 50
  • Brightness: 25

Categories vs Tags vs Multiple Blogs

Currently i have 10 blogs (public and private) and infinite tags. I’m sure there is a better way to organise my stuff.

Also, i want to buy the domain for my Blog and so want to find a way to combine all 8 into 1 Blog/Site and still be able to seperate the content



Now i found that there is a Post Format also …
