Make sure you have the correct color temp settings on for your room'* lighting.

They're SOOOO easy on the eyes. I don't get strain on the computer since i switched. Make sure you enable cleartype (a technology made for LCDs, that enables sub pixels to be switched on to make text even easier).

Then get the tuner here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx and enjoy!
