    LED is better, but better for your eyes? IDK

    LED is generally better for picture quality. As far as being better for eyes is concerned, I think refresh rate has something to do with that. Refresh rate can be adjusted in anything, LED, LCD, CRT.

    I have a LED monitor on the left and a LCD monitor on the right. I didn't pay good attention when I bought the second one. Now, I am stuck with a LED monitor that is brighter and better on the left side. It can't be good for the eyes.

    Go with LED if you can. It is definitely better.

    Go for the monitors with highest contrast ratios. Higher the contrast ratio better is picture quality . If I had a option of buying a sleek CRT monitor I would definitely go for it because the contrast ratio is 1 : infinity . They have the best quality pictures you will ever get very natural . Hope this helps.

    LED screens are LCD screens that use LEDs to light up the screen. An expensive LED should be more relaxing for your eyes, but if you really waqnt to feel a difference try using a small application called f.lux.

    Well you have to know that a LED screen is actually a LCD screen with LEDs for the luminosity.

    So by definition LED is better ;).

    Go for the higher contrast, the bigger, the lowest "answer time" and better luminosity / cd²

    I have recently replaced my old 19" LCD with a 24" LED and even though it was difficult for my eyes to get used to it for the first 2 days, it now feels better. Plus I am using an application called F.lux that adjusts the monitor's brightness and colors automatically. To be honest, my eyes still strain a lot and I am planning to buy Gunnar glasses in the near future.
    Oh, I am also using an application called Workrave. Basically you can set it to block your computer for x minutes every x minutes. I recommend you to check it out!

    Yes, use f.lux and the 20-20-20 rule (every 20 minutes, look away from the monitor for 20 seconds, at objects that are 20 feet away from you) :) Also look into EyeDefender and WorkRave.

    LED of course, if u can get one grab one, this contains an extra layer for the protection of eyes and better view!

    I use LED monitor along with anti-reflective specs. Also keeping brightness at lowest and using flux helps a lot.
