Just installed the new 2005FPW and am having some problems getting it calibrated just right. I know there are a few people on the boards that have them already, any chance of one of you sending me your calibration files to try out? :) PM me if you can help me out and I'll send you my email. Or easier still, zip it (they only seem to be tiny) and attach it to a post ;)

They're in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/

Much appreciated!

edit: oh, and please let me know what you have your brightness & contrast set to ;)

I never calibrated mine... I just plugged it in through VGA. But here is the only file in that directory if you want it.

Enjoy the monitor!
