"Excellent love the screen filters"

January 08, 2015  |  By maxinesymes

 |  Version: f.lux 3.10

Pros

I am using this on both my phone and computer (home and work) and finding it is very good at filtering out the light that will impact my sleep cycle.

Cons

No negatives

"Needs better time control"

January 05, 2015  |  By AppSeeker

 |  Version: f.lux 3.10

Pros

Cuts out blue light.

Cons

User can't customize dimming and brightening times.

Summary

The user has to set their location to control the dimming. The program cuts blue light when the sun is below the horizon at that location. Not so good if for (Canadian) locations where daylight's too short in winter and too long in summer. I set my coordinates to the darkest place on earth closest to my time zone (north or south of me, depending on the season), and then I just start f.lux at the same time every night, instead of letting it run in the background and dim my screen automatically, changing with the seasons. Annoying, but a functional workaround.

"Life and Job Saving"

November 26, 2014

 |  Version: f.lux 3.10

Pros

Immediately reduced the eye strain I was feeling
Worked fine with Windows 8.1

All 4 and 5 star reviews... how often do you see that?

Cons

Haven't found any yet

Summary

I literally just downloaded this. I got two new computers in three days... one for myself and a new one from work. Both brand new Lenovos and both the first new computer I'd had in a few years. I had never had eye strain before and I could not handle looking at either one of these. It literally hurt. My IT guy at work and I were going through lots of different color management settings to try to improve it when I found this. I downloaded it and the relief was instantaneous. My eyes immediately felt better. I think there will still be some tweaking to do but the change is incredible and now I don't have to worry I won't be able to be productive at work because of needing too many breaks to get away from my computer screen!

"Excellent. Works great on Windows 8.1, too!"

September 12, 2014  |  By JayScott

 |  Version: f.lux 3.9

Pros

Does what everyone says. has a very pleasant user interface now, too.
Works right on XP and 8.1

Cons

Doesn't say it works on Windows 8.1 (but it does).

Summary

I didn't realize I was so reliant on this little utility, which I've been using for years. Then I replaced my XP laptop with one running 8.1, and discovered I almost couldn't work at night. So I came here to re-install, and was very bothered to see it runs on Windows 7, but doesn't list 8. But I couldn't find a replacement, so I decided to try it, anyway. Very glad I did: it works fine, and now I can work fine, too.

All I can say is: Windows should come with this. IMHO: It's immoral to sell PCs without it.

"A great app to reduce eye strain."

August 19, 2014  |  By Frubello82

 |  Version: f.lux 3.9

Pros

Works in the background, using a minimum of ram. The shift is "almost unnoticeable". Actually works! My eyes, they water considerably lesser now.

Cons

As I said, the shift is "almost unnoticeable". They could work on making the transition very slowly, so that the human eye accepts the transition without actually feeling the difference.

Summary

Highly recommended.

"Great product"

December 03, 2013  |  By deeserena

 |  Version: f.lux 3.9

Pros

I have had problems sleeping well after working on my computer. The f.lux program has really helped me feel rested even when I work right up until it's time to shut off the lights.

Cons

The color change can make pictures/icons/etc look really weird. Desktop publishing and this program would not get along.
