So, the Asus Oled is going back as well.
After using it a full day and also in the evening, my eyes are quite irritated today.
After testing 5 laptops from different manufactures, Intel / AMD. LCD/Oled, there just is not a modern laptop that I could use.
I probably could survive with the OLED, ensuring its above 52% brightness. But I would need to limit my daily usage to a few hours. Only time would tell how much I could use it on a daily basis. But then again, there will be long workdays when I need to watch the screen for 10-12h, so I need a laptop that will not irritate my eyes.
Now I'm "resting" my eyes with this HP desktop monitor for today and maybe I'll try a couple of days more, but it is clear that the OLED is also straining my eyes.
Some people would say that of course your eyes get tired after watching a screen for 10 h. No, they will not get tired watching this HP desktop monitor or an older Lenovo with poor screen. They will also not get tired watching a Sony LCD TV without PWM. Nor reading a book even in situations when I have a real page turner and read it during the day and most of the night.
So the problem really is in the screens, not my eyes. Yes, my eyes might be more sensitive than most people, but manufactururers should still be able to make screens that do not irritate the eyes.
I've heard this countless times from people who are oblivious to this problem that their eyes get tired or they get a migraine after a long workday. It IS the flickering in the screens that is causin the issue, it is not their eyes or their migraine. They would not have the problem with a screen that does not flicker.
It is also not blue light. The blue light hype is the most outrageous marketing bs that is going around nowadays. These Eye Care moninors that supposedly emit less blue light. People's eyes do not get strained outdoors on a clear sky day, thought the amount of blue light is massive in comparison to any screen available. Blue light does not irritate eyes. Flicker does.
