Hi,

First time poster here.

I got a new 24" HP LP2475w LCD a couple weeks ago. It's a wide-gamut monitor, and it's great for the price, as it is one of the few IPS monitors available.

I've always calibrated my older, smaller LCD to a luminance value of ~120, but it seems too bright on this display. Almost painfully bright. Maybe because it's just because it's much bigger than what I'm used to, and it's emitting light from a larger surface area than my old LCD.

So I turned down the brightness and recalibrated, and now have a luminance value of 102 which is far more comfortable to my eyes. Is such a low luminance value acceptable? Someone told me that LCD luminance values should never go below 120. True or false?

EDIT: I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum, so I reposted here in the color management forum. No need to reply here.
