    I strongly recommend you install some lights so that it's bright when the sun is shining. Just because you sit in a chair looking at millions of pixels on a backlit screen, is NO reason for you to accept a dark room.

    Nobody should have a dark room in the daytime.
    Oh also, if you don't have any windows in the room, that's actually illegal because of fire hazard.



  • Are you saying that you're always using "Darkroom Mode" in order to achieve the red color temperature of 2000K?

    May I ask you why you want it to always be 2000K?



  • No, its just that my computer is in a dark room and i want to keep it at 2000k all the time because i fell that its too bright. I didnt mean darkroom mode.



  • Is this a desktop with a separate monitor, or is it a laptop?
    If it's a laptop, could you try taking it outside, and seeing just how dim your screen is in comparison on it's highest setting. If you have a bit smaller desktop computer and an extension cord, and a power strip, you could take your desktop outside, but most people don't do that. They don't do that, because they know for a fact that their monitor is just not bright enough, and most people like privacy, and don't have large privacy fences.

    Then lower your monitor's brightness. Or, turn on your indoor lights (and lower your monitor's brightness). You're hurting your eyes by having your monitor being the brightest thing in your field of vision. In the long run, that's going to be a big mistake (just ask your eye doctor). So I'm sorry, but I can't support always using a computer in a dark room, not in good conscience. It's somewhat ok for an hour or two at a time, like for a movie, but even then it's best to have some sort of ambient light. Our eyes need it.

    Is your indoor lighting making your room too hot? I mean, why won't you just turn the lights on in your room to offset the brightness of your monitor? The secret to achieving comfort at your monitor is, balance its brightness with the brightness of your room. Turn the lights on and achieve that balance.

    Edit: Whoa wait a minute. Are you trying to avoid having reflections on a glossy monitor?



  • Adjust it with another software of directly via driver settings. I have an intel graphics card and I can adjust it to whatever colours I like, the driver settings provides it. Or try to define some location on the globe pole (north or south pole) where the sun isn't shining at the moment :D



  • Well, like we've stated, this is not a good idea. Why is this room that your computer is in, always dark? Can you install a light bulb or lamp? Also how many windows are in this room?



  • Ok. So I use my computer for maybe 1 hour during the day and the room that my computer is in a dark room, so it's like I'm using the computer at night. I would just like it to be at 2000k, but it doesn't go that low during the day. Any suggestions? Thanks.



  • I understand now what you are saying, but I think 2700K would be plenty. It's on it's way to "warm incandescent" and that should be more than enough. I really would like to know, does this room have a window, and does that window have dark shades installed?

    I don't understand. I mean, just use 2700K and lower the brightness of your monitor. Why does it have to be 2000K? 2000K isn't any dimmer than 6500K, it's just an illusion due to the lack of blue light.

    Or just put a lamp in this room, or a floor lamp or something. I mean, really: why doesn't this room have any lights in it? Why does this room have to be so dark? It's very hard on our eyes to use a computer in total darkness like that, even for only 1 hour per day. Ask your eye doctor about this if you don't believe me.
