Interesting, I'd like to see more feedback first. One issue may be for graphic designers.
No comments for the sleep-related aspects (while awake--for sleep, I just put my monitor into hibernate ;p), but for the color stuff, I was just recently tinkering around with the warm/cool/etc. settings for my monitor, and reading about creating color profiles, adjusting color temperature, kelvins or whatnot. Interesting stuff. Personally I just leave it 'standard' and adjust brightness/contrast.

Just installed it. It's night now, and indeed it gives a softer look to the eyes, while the colour change is not that annoying imo. But let's see how it works out long term. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion!

I've actually been using it for about a year now. While I can't say anything on the sleep issue, it definitely feels easier on the eyes. =)
For normal use, I have no complaints!
Oh! My eyes! they are not burning! Thanks for the link I will be trying this out, I doubt this will help sleep but its still nice on the eyes.
I always sleep with my blinds open, I can never wake up otherwise hehe. I'm not even a teen.

Wow, this is exciting!
A lifetime of surfing in the tropics has left me with very early stage macular degeneration, and blue light is waaay bad for the condition. This is the first thing I've heard of that isn't a clunky filter thing. Relief from monitor glare headaches would be a nice bonus, too. And I definitely have a hard time falling asleep if I've use the computer after dinner. I've seen a direct correlation--more use, worse problem. Didn't realize it was the blue light, but makes perfect sense.
I'm installing this puppy this afternoon.
Thank you Proxx!!
Wow, I have to say, that is pretty neat. I have a feeling I'm keeping this one around.
I'll try it too, thanks. I often find it difficult to fall asleep whenever I work until the wee hours. And of course those are the nights we most need sleep in order to function well the next day. I hadn't heard of bad blue light. If it helps, Proxx is my new hero.
A somewhat related question: I bought a new laptop last week and the screen has far more reflection/glare than past ones (most recently a tablet.) Is this typical of new LED screens, or...? If it varies between brands/models, then I'm tempted to return this one.
Decided to install this for a while, but wow, everything is all weird and pink now... I dunno if I can handle this.
Night has fallen. This is great! It's wonderful to have the light so...subdued. My screen isn't really pink--there's just a slight pink shadow if you drag a window around. I'm not surprised that it varies a lot by monitor. I wouldn't mind having this setting in the daytime, too.
Perhaps this is the reason my sleep pattern is so bucked. I'm just gonna install it and use it and see if it does actually help me.
I might try this. Only issue is that I don't want to leave my laptop screen on all night. My sleep schedule is f'd in the a. Bed at 3, up by 9:45 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and then up between 3 and 4 every other day...
I used it last night and liked it so I've decided to keep it. I think just the monitor having a night time feel to it at night is nice and a little easier on the eyes. Obviously it's no magic panacea to sleep problems but it is actually a big difference not having daylight blaring at you through all hours of the night.
@xquio: You don't have to leave your screen on all night, that's not the point of it at all. The point is if you use your computer past sunset the screen changes to reflect that so your brain doesn't get exposed to "artificial daylight".
