    I am sharing my display color calibration profile to anyone who is interested. Here is the link to download it.

    I have created this color profile using ColorMunki Display.

    Terrific! Many thanks, I've been looking for this. Ever since Anandtech's article describing the improvement to a calibrated display I've been hoping someone would post the .icc from a professional calibration tool. It is hard to justify the investment in a Spyder (or similar) calibration tool for the rare occasion. Your gift is much appreciated!

    Thanks for posting and I'll have a peek at it as well. I have a Spyder 2 that I might give a try just to see what happens. Question: Do you have the auto-brightness shut off when you do the calibration and do you then run the screen with auto-brightness off when using your new profile? I would expect that would affect the accuracy of the profile if still left in auto. Cheers!

    @joudbren, I use a Spyder too and the ambient lighting and screen brightness will affect the calibration. I usually calibrate at home where ambient lighting is weaker, and when I bring my Acer to the office, the colors are slightly different due to lighting.

    Having said that, I fix the screen brightness during calibration and actual use.

    Thanks. Curious to see how this compares to my Pantone HueyPRO. I'm guessing your calibration should be better...

    Thank you very much for this. I will see how this does compare with Spyder as well.

    Thanks for that! I leave auto off as well for calibrating my systems so was just curious. Cheers!

    If I installed this color profile, could i go back to the original?
    Easily?

    I've never messed with color profiles before so I don't know about them and how to change them,etc. etc.

    I just downloaded it and saw it said Samsung. Wouldn't it make a difference which monitor(s) it was applied to?
    I have one ASUS 24" main monitor and one ViewSonic 22 " secondary monitor.

    Wouldn't different video cards change things too?
