What Saturation level do you use / recommend? What exactly is Saturation and would you recommend adjusting it or no? Thanks, I want a geeks answer on this, since they would most likely know what it is and whether or not to adjust it. Thanks everyone, much appreciated.
^^ This is where I would adjust my saturation. Thanks to anyone who helps, I will appreciate it VERY much. Take care.

It all depends on what comfort your eyes. Technically speaking, Saturation means how much "Chroma" or color intensity you want to set.
HSL (aka Hue-Saturation-Lightness) is a color system just like CYMK and RGB. Colors as visualized as a cylinder. As you move around its circumference, the color values (variations) change. (i.e Red, Blue, Green, ..etc) this is controlled by "Hue".
As you move along the height of the cylinder, the brightness (or "lightness") of the color specified changes.
Finally, as you move away from the center-line of the cylinder, the chroma or color intensity chnages. (i.e how "bold" your chosen color is). This is known as "Saturation".
The figure below, demonstrates the HSL color system aforementioned.

Remember that white corresponds to binary 1 (aka high voltage) and zero corresponds to black (aka low or zero voltage)
