What brightness setting do you guys use? Does it effect 3d?

so much variety.. but seems most use 4 or 5. I need to do a test run to see what the battery drain difference is. If its minor i may stick with 4 over 3

What effects battery drain? Does the 3d slider? Brightness obviously does.. what about volume?

I do 2 on Power Saver because gameplay is the most important.

However, I do tend to stay on these settings so I don't feel spoiled if I play on higher brightness levels. After a while, it just doesn't bother me because I don't acknowledge the difference.

Im kinda in the same boat as you crybaby. You get used to the lower brightness untill you go to a brighter setting then it looks different =P

Running a test right now to compare brightness 4 and brightness 3 battery life with all the stuff on

I usually keep my brightness on 1 and 3d off, honestly.

im surprised how many of you use power save.. i think its a horrible feature. If it just killed the brightness that would be one thing but it actually dulls out the colors and stuff.

Anyway ive done several tests so far testing the battery life drain with various features, i'll post the results soon. I just have to do a test with the headphones in (so the speakers are off) and im done. Strangely enough the wifi drains very little. Theres only about a 10 minute difference with it on or off for battery life
