Are you one of those Eee PC users who are wishing that your netbook’s screen display could be brighter. Unfortunately Asus and other netbook makers won’t deliberately do this on their machines due to manufacturing costs. So along with low brightness and other standard netbook features, we users are left with more room to tweak our netbooks to improve their performances.
Fortunately for use there are tools that we can use to do this enhancements. One of these is eeectl, a software utility for controling and overclocking Eee PCs. One of the settings that you can tweak using the eeectl is the brightness of the monitor. The eeectl lets you adjust your netbook’s backlight setting from the lowest to the ultra bright level. The ultra-bright setting can nearly double the ed/m2 value of your netbook’s display. But of course there is a trade-off to this – increasing the brightness of your netbook’s display will reduce the battery life of your Eee PC as well as change the display of black values due to the increased brightness.
But if you don’t mind those setbacks in favor of a brighter display, go ahead and check out eeectl.
