Hello NCX,

PC Monitors says that my Dell U2417H has a white point of 6645K when I use its "Color Temp." (blue light reduction) setting at 5000K. I am trying to determine what the best bias light would be for this setting.

Right now I am using a 1600 lumen Feit 3000K "Warm White" A19 blub. The monitor's brightness is set at 22%. I experience some eye strain. I want to get a brighter bulb (maybe 2500 lumen) but I can't find an A19 with a 3000K color temperature.

As an alternative I could get a 2500 lumen 5000k bulb, disable the blue light reduction setting and use something like Ocushield to block the blue light. Thoughts?
