My not that cheap EIZO LCD monitor has a sensor and a really good
working automation to adjust dimming. However, I don't use red shift
software. I dislike LCD monitors in this and a few other regards. I
still own CRTs, especially regarding coloration for averaged computer
usage, LCDs can't hold a candle to CRTs, red shift is a weak workaround
and to me it's just a PITA. Dimming is a very good feature, fortunately
my EIZO's automation perfectly fits to my needs.
