I currently have this monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116421&Tpk=2365wb It doesn't say what the backlight is, but I'm pretty sure it is a CCFL. My monitor is too dark. I replaced a 19" monitor with a 250cd/m2 that was brighter than this and it is listed as 300cd/m2. When I got the monitor I needed a replacement and didn't bother sending it back. Now it is too late for that. I would like to know if I can replace the back light. If so, where can I get one. I've done a fair bit of googling and have not found anything, I don't really know how to search for this kind of thing. I would like to note that I very much enjoy this monitor and the pros out weight the cons by an order of magnitude. I would buy this monitor again even if it really is dark. It has NO DITHERING, even with very close shades over a large area. The 14ms response time isn't noticeable. I think that this is measured in a full black-to-white instead of the more popular gtg. anyway, any help is much appreciated even if the answer is "no, that's not possible."
