hpst At this point I am so nervous about displays in general I don't trust my own body as EVERYTHING seems to set off strain so I don't know what is caused by some tech issue, if anything, and what is anxiety/psychosomatic.
I am 100% behind you on this one. I'm so confused as to what is the actual issue these days as I'm starting to think that my own anxiety about getting headaches and migraines is actually as strong a trigger as the screen I'm using. Sometimes I can use my Dell XPS 15 9560 for most of a day (with some breaks) and feel fine. Others it starts me on to a series of cluster headaches. I've wondered if switching between different screens relatively quickly might cause this - looking at my phone, the TV and then the laptop for example, but even with constant analysis of my own body I just can't explain why sometimes I'm triggered more heavily by the same tech than others.
I'm at the point where I feel envious of friends and my wife who can just sit on her phone all evening looking at Instagram without any pain, yet I'm unable to work or do the things that I enjoy such as gaming and music production without pain! I'm also concerned that persisting with a Macbook for 2 years has permanently damaged my eyes and this is why I am so sensitive now when only 8 years ago I used to do games development working on screens all day long before playing games all night and never get a headache. Now if I use screens for more than a few hours a day I'm almost guaranteed a headache the next day, which often develops into a series of migraines over several days.
Anyways, my working setup (which doesn't DEFINITEIVELY work but does mostly as long as I watch my hours):
Home Computer: Dell XPS 15 9560 running Windows 10 build 1511 + ditherig + Benq V2400W monitor - always gives strain without ditherig but I can use comfortably for a few hours (maybe even a day) with it running
Studio Computer: i7 8700 with GTX 760 running Windows 10 build 1511 + Benq V2400W monitor - extremely comfortable with no tweaking
Keep fighting the good fight everyone..
