Sometimes, there are things in life that we don’t necessarily need, but heck, it sure would be awesome to have. I mean hey, I enjoy treating myself once in a while – you should too. And I have to admit, this thing is way too cool to pass up when you have the extra cash laying around. Plus, if you’re someone that usually games in the dark, this will help your eyes adjust to something much better for them, and preserve your vision more. What am I talking about, you might ask? Simple: It’s a backlight for your monitor and/or Television. It’s designed primarily for gamers so that it will enhance the experience and allow your eyes to focus much easier and with more clarity, without as much eyestrain. Sure, there are OLED monitors that are easier on the eyes, but those are insanely expensive. Think of this like a more affordable substitute (or addition) to an OLED monitor. The Govee RGBIC Monitor Backlight is a product I personally think would be very useful for those suffering from eyestrain and/or vision problems, but would still like to enjoy their video games without as much trouble.
More light means less strain, because the pupils in your eyes don’t have to dilate as much to focus on a screen. Besides, the smaller the opening on a camera lens, more light can be used, and this makes the picture more accurate. Your eyes don’t have to work as hard, and you can see more details. I personally think that having a light on distorts the color and the vividness of the screen and the details that are present, because the color of the lights in the room make things look different due to the surroundings of the screen you’re looking at. It’s simple science, to be honest. That’s the reason that grey eyes look a little different in color depending on what the person is wearing, along with the color/shade of light that is used to reflect off of objects and create individual colors when the light spectrum is split up to encompass the different hues of the rainbow.
But with this backlight, there is a scanner that literally looks at the monitor and adjusts the light pattern in the light strip based off of what’s on the screen and the corners of the display. That way, you don’t have any light that would interfere with how the screen is perceived. With this in mind, you can rest assured that your eyes are seeing things exactly how the artist and/or developers intended. That is, if you set up your screen correctly with the right color balance among other things. And if you’re worried about frame rates dropping? Don’t. The computer is built-in to the light system itself, so it will have basically no impact on your frame rates. The Govee app has a ton of features included with the purchase of these lights, but I’ll let you discover them for yourself. These lights I think speak for themselves – I don’t need to go over specifications, but you are fully welcome to if you’d like to check the Govee RGBIC Monitor Backlight out yourself.
Thanks for reading.
So… I’m Roxie. To be fair, I’m just some person… girl… thing… on the internet who likes to shout my opinion as loud as I can while also doing it respectfully and trying to come from a place of good intents. I’m an extremely spiritual individual (the legit logic-based para-psychological stuff, not the “woo-woo” nonsense) who has a lot of diverse interests, and spends her time working on herself and trying to get ahead in life. I want to provide my views on topics that would normally be a bit controversial to some in the gaming, sci-fi, tech – whatever you’d call this blog – industry. I play games because I see them as an experience, something to enjoy and get immersed in. My favorite games used to be MMORPG’s but I’m learning to enjoy more single-player experiences as of recently. I’ve felt alone for most of my life, so the ability to interact with other players in games has been something of a comfort to me. Oh and I’m also a heathenous little thing that has to filter myself incessantly just to write these articles.
