Brightness setting for new Dell 2713HM monitor?
Apr 17, 2013

Just setup my new Dell 2713HM monitor tonight. It's nothing short of amazing. I want to work in sRGB, which is easy to select, but how do you determine where to set the brightness?

I typically work in my home office with either just daylight from a shaded window, or tonight, with some 'normal' room light (if there is a normal).

Anyone have this monitor and a tool to adjust it to a reasonable brightness for an 'average' lit room?

I know it's hard to give advice when you don't know how my room is lit, but I'd be curious if anyone has a ball park setting?

I thought I read someplace that about 32% is close for a room lit by one 60w bulb, but I don't remember where I read that or if that's really correct.
