"Some Good / Some Bad"

Does dim the screen very well. Very consistent brightness level.

Does so by using camera to sample current lighting.

No occasional brightness flicker when opening or adjusting windows like some other freeware programs (like PangoBright).

Dims both monitors in a dual-monitor configuration.


Must be a memory leak as it makes my computer very unresponsive over time.

Restarting the application cures the condition but this can take a while if the computer is 'hung up' (especially if returning to the computer after a day or two with Smart Brightness Controller running).

I own a copy of Smart Brightness Controller but have switched to PangoBright (even though there is some occasional brightness flicker). The 'memory leak' of Smart Brightness Controller is too much of a pain for me to deal with.


As for the post by Tech1professional....

This program is not Spyware and was not taking pictures of the user. It was using the attached camera to sample the available light and would dim the monitors accordingly.

For example, if the computer was by a window to the outside, the monitors would be brighter during the day (when more ambient light is available) and would slowly dim as night fell.

I don't think that Tech1professional should necessarily be calling himself/herself a tech if he/she couldn't figure that out.
