I was engaged in color perception work in the late 1970s and had to
memorize the Munsell Book of Color (about 4000 color chips), and was
tested for color-blindness many times and never came up any of the
different kinds of color blindness.

My monitor is almost 6 years old, an NEC MultiSync LCD 1980SX driven by
an ATI Rage chip on the mother board of this computer. The first time I
took this test. Probably took me less than 10 minutes, but I did not
time it. It is almost 4 PM and I did not have the fluorescent lights in
the room turned on. Sunny outside.

Frankly, I doubt the quality of the monitor and the room lighting makes
any difference since I was not asked to identify the colors. If I were,
those considerations would matter. But for just ordering, no.
