Post Your Monitor Backlight Hours
« on: Fri, 14 July 2017, 16:11:36 »
I'm running 2 24" Dell U2410 monitors

The left one is at 11656 hours and the right one at 11539 hours.

Looking back at when I received these and accounting for holidays, vacations etc, I have averaged ~11hrs a day on them.  :)) 8)

23105 and 22686
I got them probably about 6 years ago.

I refuse to dignify them with saying what they are other than dual 25in. 1080p.

I don't want to post mine, it's embarrassing, because it's an awful number which exclaims how Tp4 has wasted and is continuing to waste his life in front of the PC.

How do you find this information?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

How do you find this information?

On my dell monitors you have to start them in service mode the process for which you can typically find by googling.

Some monitors may have this information in the standard menu, not sure otherwise.

An old Cheepie monitor.

It was super budget back in the day ~$200 in 2011


The spec sheet says 300cd brightness..

I just tested it today, 60cd maximum, even after warm-up

24,388 hours.



Doubt it could do 300cd when new.. But 60cd def shows its age...

Just checked my one and only HP LP2065 which I've had since I got back from uni 12 years pretty much to the day ago - 11792 backlight hours.  That means I've only wasted about 11% of my life sat in this chair :))

AFAIK there is no easy way to pull the hours from my monitor (AOC E2070SWN). But, pen/paper/calculator says somewhere between 18,600-23,360hrs

20000000:1 (dynamic contrast ratio)..

hahahahahaha..

If max brightness is 200cd,  then its black point is 0.0001cd

They used Alien technology to build dis monitor ..

??  lcds have either ccfl or led backlit hour..    led degrade just like ccfl,  which is why monitors keep an hour count.

Hmm, In that case I may look again as I did not see any similar information from my monitors menu.

Finally new Eizo CG3145 came tonight. If you do not know google it. 50 grand monitor lol. Tools of the trade. By the first time I checked it, it had 2 minutes 27 seconds. Of course they test this but they reset it before it leaves the factory. The picture on this is unreal. Kind of expected. Ready for a not joke Borat? This is not a cheap display HAHA.

I don't understand how it produces 0.001cd black level on IPS ??

-edit- oh i see..  it's using dat super -future tech panasonic panel with per-pixel light adjustment.


What it is , is an IPS panel, overlayed ontop of a TN panel.

The TN panel controls the brightness per pixel,  and the IPS controlls the color..



Dis is the FUTURE..


$31,000


Hrrrrmmm... should hit general consumer market ~ 5-7 years..  Sooner if Samsung joins the race..

Hrrrrmm.. now that I think about it.. TN itself can not go down to 0.001..

Which means both the TN and IPS must work in conjunction to get that 1m to 1 contrast ratio..

Amazing stuff.. !!

Hrrrm..  It might actually be Ips over Ips,  because if it had ips over tn,  then that reduces lag, but then the contrast uniformity would be much worse.


Theoretically, an even superior panel could be ips over ips over ips..   But that would raise backlight requirement even higher to the point of wasteful..

I think it is AH-ips over S-ips? I know I indulge but I use this to work. Be kind of stupid to get this for gaming lol. Especially since the lag is bad. Good luck get it for $31k. We paid just over 50. Now it has 17 hours 21 minutes lol.

I think the lag is probably due to the high bit LUT..
