They must have cats' eyes or something. I can't see mine in a darkened room unless the setting is about halfway or more.

On a more serious note, there us simply differences from one led to next led. Maybe it is simply an espcially dark set of leds in your PW.

Or, maybe you do need more feline powers.

I think so,
In candle light dinner environments, I can clearly see the difference between setting 0 and off.

11 seems perfect for me. When reading at night I drop it down to 4-6 range.

The minimum I can have my light at is about 16-18.

The say, have it lower in dim light and brighter in bright light, but in dim light I seem to need the light brighter, even up to 24 or so

I don't know if the difference is in my PW or in my eyes, but I actually use the lowest brightness setting when reading in a dark room (reading in bed with no lights on - curtains drawn) - And I find it too bright!

For daytime reading I typically use something in the range of 10-15.

I don't. My particular preference if actually 12.5, but because that is not available, I'm constantly fiddling with it. 12-13-12-13....

Nah. Not really But I do have a way I'd like to set the Kindle. I like it set at such a level that the screen is bright, but not so bright that it looks as if it's lit up. I don't want it to become brighter than the ambient light if possibe. So, I use the light to "whiten up" the screen, not to make it brighter. In most of my rooms and when using my overhead bed lamp, this comes down to a setting of 12. (Or 13...)

If I must go brighter than ambient, I'll do that but the least amount as possible. I set it bright enough that I can still read without having the feeling of looking at an LCD-screen.

I try to avoid reading in complete darkness. My eyes are not good at that. I hate reading a tablet in complete darkness, using a computer in darkness, or watching TV in darkness; therefore I also don't like reading in darkness using the PW.
