Regarding the eye care feature of blue light filtration, is there any benefit to this vs using a software "night light" blue light filter?

Low blue light is a scam unless the display is lit by RGB or GBR back-lighting (only found in wide gamut/professionally oriented monitors) since the rest are lit by yellow painted blue LED's.  The LBL settings and software change the colors internally (via menu settings) or digitally (software which decreases contrast and adds banding), and reduces color accuracy unless the monitor is too blue out of the box (7000k color temperature vs 6500k target).  Simply turn down the blue color setting on any monitor to achieve the same result.

High brightness in a dimly lit room is the main cause of eye strain.  Low frequency LED PWM Dimming/Non Flicker Free/Safe back-lighting is the second cause, but I don't recommend monitors with low frequency PWM and usually only TV's use low frequency PWM now.

My 25er has almost no backlight bleed or IPS glow. Do you know what panel the 25er uses? It's impressive in my opinion.

I'd have to check panelook again...and it doesn't really matter since LG is the only manufacturer of 25" 1080p IPS type panels.

Any thoughts on the Samsung LS24F350FHNXZA?

It's in my 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS buying guide and there are plenty of newer and better options including their own S24E650PL.
