Yes, I have adjusted it, color scheme and brightness are toned down. Pretty much tried every setting. Of course, the right setting makes a big difference. Still an LCD never reaches the comfort level of e-ink (for me that is) -- unless there is insufficient lighting.

Have you tried making the background gray? I find that the only way to read on my internet tablet is if I make the background a dark gray, and the font bold.

Other things you can try if it's a top end display with a good display driver card is. via the display card software, is calibrate the monitor manually specifically adjust the gamma setting or even all three colors independently to take care of any color casts. Then add your ICC profile and readjust as needed. ICC profiles are not all the same either. Because it seems you are in that very sensitive category it might take the extra steps. I know a few folks who have issues with LED monitors but not CCFL backlit displays. In my experience I find far more are sensitive to the CCFL backlit displays over LED displays but there is the odd person sensitive to LED now and then. Last solution for the super sensitive is to go back to a very high end CRT display with a very high refresh rate. 85hz is usually enough to address flicker sensitivity but some need to go to 100Hz or even 200Hz, you just need to experiment. Bonus of using a high end CRT is they rarely need no color calibration.

And yeah the right color scheme can make a difference but generally if a person is super sensitive no color scheme will make a difference. Adjusting the gamma can help over a simple brightness and contrast adjustment but if a user is sensitive to the back-lighting used on that display the only help is to try the other type of LCD display.

I wonder if people would be less eager to use beta software on their devices when that becomes an option.

The BK4 will be pretty much the KSO but might come in colors. WiFi only. $114

The kPad will be a larger Color Nook. $359
