Apple LED displays....
« on: September 24, 2009, 09:10:05 PM »

Has anyone tried to calibrate the 24 inch LED cinema display? Are the colors much better? Are they worth considering for color calibration?

Thanks!

Depending on the instrument, far worse....

Hello,

I bought a 24" LED ACD last winter. I profile it with Color Eyes Display Pro and a Spyder 3 at 6500 and L*. I've never had an Eizo or such to compare to, but the 24" provides me with the best color I've had in any display, including the older Apple ACDs. I did a side-by-side comparison of an old ACD and the 24" at an Apple store, where I profiled them both in-store. The 24" was smoother, and cleaner in gray ramps. The glare does need to be managed, but I have not found it to be an issue. I have no problem, when I use softproofing, getting a print to monitor match that is excellent.

Best,

Michael

L* calibration is really a bad idea in case of LED ACD, that is pretty nice factory calibrated to gamma 2,2. Try to use factory profile and compare it to the Spyder3 created one - I agree 100% with digitaldog, and belive that such calibration will only makes things worse.
