Other than Samsung, what other monitor brands offer software control?

Samsung has MagicTune that allows you to change monitor brightness and presets. Planning on picking up a 27" monitor which will be around 2ft away from me and I don't want to get up every single time to change the settings.

What other brands of monitors that offer software control?

Why do you change monitor settings so much?

Brighter during the day and dimmer at night.

Two feet away, you shouldn't have to get up? I think both Catalyst Control and nVIDIA control panels offer brightness control.

I just find it funny how after all this time no one has thought of a way to control brightness with the keyboard. Laptops has had it for years why not desktops?

*edit* Dell has Dell Display Manager. Guess I'll have to go with a 27" Dell.

OpTical, you could try a third party program I have never tried it so couldn't tell you if it's good, but looks to be able to suit what you are looking for.

I got a few of these: HP Pavilion 23xi 58.4 cm (23") Diagonal IPS LED Backlit Monitor (C3Z94AA) | HP® Africa.

The HP Pavilion xi series displays come with an app called HP My Display.

It gives you full control of display settings, taking really little resources. The best backlit displays I have had, the app makes it even better.

The monitors Kari linked to have an anti-glare coating. I know most of the Dell's have an anti-glare coating........I wonder if that would help the OP instead of constantly fiddling with the brightness levels. I honestly can't remember touching the brightness levels on either of the last two monitors I've had. I also have an annoying light that washes over my display during the day, but the matte finish and anti-glare coating take care of that.
