Any Custom Color Profiles for the Samsung LCD?
Hi everyone! First post. I recently switched over from Windows, and the Air is amazing, but here's my predicament:
I was happy with my new 2012 air (LG panel), but one of the keys was squashed in (came like that) so I was shipped a replacement and it has the Samsung panel.
Compared side by side, the Samsung panel is definitely warmer. It has a reddish hue that I'm not too fond of, but I don't want to go through the whole replacement process again as I think it's fixable with a custom color profile. Would anyone happen to have a color profile to 'fix' the warmish tinge on the Samsung and make it more neutral? I tried calibrating it myself using the colorsync calibration tool, but it just resulted in strained eyes and the profiles just looked crappy.
Thanks in advance!

Find attached a bunch of them in a zip file.
For what it is worth, I tried a whole lot of different ones, and ended up going back to the factory setting. (I have a Samsung screen, on a 13" 2012 Air.)
The current Air screens are okay, but not great. Limit to what you can squeeze out of them with a custom profile.
You could always make your own from scratch, or customise an existing one.

@Miat: Thank you!!! I have only tried anandtech's color profile so far, and while it does neutralize the warmness a bit, it washes it out (the contrasts aren't as good)
Just curious - have you seen the LG screen? Funnily enough, I actually prefer that one. The shadows seem to be better. It just seems like the text/black in general is 'darker' on the Samsung.

I think that it is going to be hard to improve much on Apple's factory profile.
