So I have read through most of the posts here, including the one where someone got rid of eyestrain due to using a correct ICC profile on his monitor.
I have noticed a very interesting thing - I am using an old ACER laptop (no eyestrain there) connected through VGA cable to ASUS PB238Q monitor. The monitor is LED and from a time where noone cared about PWM, so it definately has it.
What is funny though, when I use it connected via VGA I get no eyestrain and the monitor is really nice to look at. However when I connect it through HDMI I do get eyestrain. I can tell the difference within seconds.
Does anyone have similar experience, maybe something in the way HDMI is processed vs. VGA? Or maybe since VGA is older and more noisy, it can cancel out PWM or lessen its effects?
Also, I cannot find anywhere some standard color ICC profile for the monitor, so I guess I cannot test whether that helps or not. However the VGA connection also wasnt calibrated or played with and is set "as it came".
Thank you for your input on this.
