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.
doesn´t work for me. Black objects are getting too dark and are losing details.

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.

Not really looking for color accuracy here. More for brighter and vibrant look based on my 13" MBP. The profile from IngerMan looks like it has a purple tint on my screen.
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.
