"Makes my eyes much less tired!"

September 17, 2013  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It gives the screen a nice hue which doesn't just fade it but makes it look softer in appearance. It's customizable too so if you want to work for a long time during the day, you can set it to reflect the night time vision. The hues/saturation can be adjusted to suit you too.

Cons

It takes a bit of time to get used to it!

Summary

It was strange getting used to it but it is such a good little program that it is worth the 'adjusting' time. It's no good to use it while photo editing. You can disable it and change the settings as you wish.

Cnet should definitely give a review on this and make it obviously available to everyone.

Updated on Sep 17, 2013

I forgot to mention - it works with Windows 8.

"Awesome,fantastic,amazing!"

March 03, 2013  |  By boki101

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Buttons on my monitor broke,so I couldn't lower the brightnes of the screen,especialy at the nigh time,when it realy started to give me sore eyes. F.lux not only lowered the brightnes of my screen,but it made it redish colored which is really comfortable for longer reading. It's light on resources.

Cons

None at all.

Summary

My monitor has been reborn!

"Do not download from CNET/download.com"

October 10, 2012  |  By scheissypoo

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Product works great

Cons

But CNET is now forcing you to click through a bunch of bloatware to get to the product.
Just go to the product website and download there:
http://stereopsis.com/flux/

Summary

CNET has turned to $hit. I used to come here specifically because I thought they were trustworthy. My trust is hereby gone, and I will avoid downloading anything here from now on.
This is in reference to this new cnet downloader, which tries to add crap to your computer with every download.

"Everybody should use this"

October 06, 2011  |  By ancient_hilly

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I spend many hours daily using computers, I find the softer warmer colours less harsh on my eyes after sundown. It's now 6:31pm and the program has just kicked in taking just a few seconds to transition from day to night time lighting. Brilliant !

Cons

None. I've only used this for a few days but I'm so happy with it.

Summary

Give your eyes a treat. You may even sleep better at night. I seem to do so but it's early days yet.

"Early days but great so far"

September 18, 2011  |  By Damnedbutgoodo

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Free
Small download and quick to install
I can tell sunrise time in my area from the system tray icon

Cons

just installed. None so far
One extra icon in my system tray at the bottom right of my screen for my preference.

Summary

Saw this on BBC program Click so I am giving it a try. Once installed, my screen brightness has improved for the time of day. I would never have found the correct setting myself.

"One of the best program created for your eyes using pc"

August 05, 2011  |  By supergemini

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It works for me. Makes my monitor more "warmer" and easy/relaxing to my eyes. The setting is adjustable, just adjust it to the most comfortable brightness you like and you're set to go. Really works like a charm. Best of all, it's free. Try it.

Cons

None. Maybe for some it could make their pc monitor darker but it's adjustable. Nothing to worry about. It was backup by science, you know.

Summary

Trust me, it'll make your surfing more comfortable and easy to your eyes.
