Yes, looking at the posts seems like Samsung Panels are great out of the box.

I have an LG panel and after a few days of tweaking the profile, I got it to where I am perfectly happy with the colors and performance.

Its the shimmering text (text only) while scrolling thats driving me nuts.

Thank's a lot for posting that profile.

Those profiles look waaaay too contrasty and saturated for me. I like color accuracy and the default profile looks great. It almost exactly matches my iPad and iPhone screens.

I've used the LG profile from the original macrumors thread about this and generally like it, but I have a question.

Have any LG people tried these samsung profiles? Any better?

I'm so used to the superior contrast of the 3rd Gen iPad that this MBA 2012 screen bothers me

I looked at the profiles of my iMac since it also uses LG panels and lo and behold I had like 15 profiles there, lot of them by Nikon within a folder by itself.

So copied that folder to the MBA and now was able to choose the profile "Nikon for Apple Mac" and love it !

I must have installed some Nikon Software to get those profiles.

Question? Your posting these profiles based on a 2010 MBA which I'm not sure which onboard graphics it had but wouldn't that make a serious difference?

My initial impression is better since loading mavericks on here, but I'm still on the fence as too keeping the computer.

Update: Returning tomorrow. I put mine next to a friends who just got it and his is all stock and a samsung panel, just awesome next to mine.

Been trying to calibrate my Samsung display on the new 13" MBA, without success. With the attached I can now see all the shades of gray. The OEM profile only showed the last 5. The colours seems to be spot on also. The only downside is that the contrast is a bit over the scale..

For me this will be perfect if the display not turn more bluish. I see all the shades of gray but not work for me!

But otherwise color vibrance should be better than the last one I posted. Sharpness should also be better (due to the boosted contrast). Try this one instead.
I like them both bill-p the problem is that we donīt see the all shades of gray, only two.

Can someone upload your result of calibrating screen (macbook air 2013) ?
Thanks!!

Hi!
I just chose this one for my MBA 2013 with Samsung panel and looks the most correct of all. Thanks for that! The factory yosemite seemed a bit yellowish.

Cheers,
J.

How do you know whether you have an LG or Samsung screen?
