I recently bought a PlayStation 3 Slim which is connected to HDMI. It gives me quite strong eye strain within an hour, getting stronger over time. I think even looking at the "XMB" system menu (1080p) causes the eye strain.
My usable monitor (BenQ EW2740L) which the PS3 currently is connected to doesn't have TV inputs but only HDMI and VGA. I consider buying an active AV to HDMI 1080p adapter to try and see if it helps.
But I would like to ask you about your experiences with the PS3. Is it usable for you? I only tried two games yet, Oblivion and Tomb Raider, both which output in 720p.
Somewhere I read PS4 and Xbox One are supposed to be unusable for us, so I thought the previous generation was usable.
My current PS3 firmware is 4.81
