I am having trouble setting up the U2711 to give me a sharp picture without burning my eyes out with the overpowering white light. Does anyone here know of a guide or a simple solution on how to set the monitor up so i can get a nice image.

I tried those settings (below, correct me if wrong) but didnt get on very well. Still fiddling with it to find the best settings but getting closer to not burning my eyes with the whites.

Brightness: 30 Contrast: 50 RGB 83, 94, 87



Custom Color

I am sure that there are differences between individual monitors but the amount of headaches this monitor was giving me and the difference the file made where so large that i thought it useful to mention it.

I fully understand that some of the users on this board use these size monitors for photo editing but for a gamer/movie watcher/bad photographer this file was perfect.

Yes you can, but no it's not safe. How to do it hasn't changed as they didn't change the assembly process either.
Youtube knows all:
