    Everyone post their results/screen model in this thread, here's mine.

    I have 11" i5 128GB MBA.

    Samsung SSD and LG Display.

    So be honest when you post...and maybe we can see if there's a large difference between Samsung and LG Displays.

    I'll update the thread with the results.

    I'm grabbing the original image here. So save the image on the left. And post your reply highlighting what you see the same as your reply.

    Are you sure this picture is usable?

    On my U2711 (high gamut monitor), the colors can´t be differentiated any better than what you have already marked.
    Checking the RGB values in Pixelmator also confirms that the RGB values themselves are in fact identical on the last portions where the color looks identical.

    EDIT: After image update, it now looks like it should. :)

    Ok, well i'll give me results...although I don't really think these kind of tests are fair as we all have different eyesight so should compare the 2 screens for ourselves. But, i'll entertain the idea.

    Correct, the image given is not valid. Digital Color Meter (/Applications/Utilities) shows the same.

    Edit - I just updated the images.

    Save the first image. And post your reply highlighting what looks the same.

    I've tested this on two computers and what I'm highlighting as looking the same on my MBA...I can see the difference in color on my iMac.

    So this works.

    That's why I selected what looks the same from the original image.

    If you look at the original image and select what looks different/the same in black (like I did) everyone else will be able to see how the screens differ from the original image.

    Not rocket science.

    EDIT: your thumbnail wasn't coming up at first. nevermind.

    for what it's worth, i can just barely differentiate all boxes on my old Thinkpad X61T. the first two reds are almost identical.

    It's funny. When I look at the thumbnail image on my Air I can see all 8 boxes. But when I click on it (and it enlarges to the original size) what I selected and highlighted looks the same.

    i wondered about this myself. it's possible that as the thumbnail was probably compressed from the original, the colors were quantized/approximated slightly.

    either way, i can still make out almost all boxes (on the original too).

    I'm not too sure if this comparison will get accurate results, but I'll play the game :roll eyes:

    Which screen do you have?

    I would really like to see what the Samsung results are...can anyone with an 11" Samsun screen post results here?

    Same with my i7 13" samsung. Exactly the same. Thanks for posting and saving me the trouble.

    BTW, I'm getting a lot better contrast on the other side of the extended image than my LG.

    Well thanks for that post. I'm gonna be fine with mine.
    If the Samsung's were perfect I'd switch...but seeing as they're a little better I'll settle with mine.

    So there it is the Samsung 13s are similar,
    with the right profile probably would be hard to tell the screens apart?

    I'm using my Dell Mini 9 now,
    it actually shows the full gradient of all colors, and cost me $150 :)

    You don't need to repost the image unless you edit and mark what you can see so we can see it. That image looks the same for everyone...but by marking it off like I did, we'll be able to fully understand what you're talking about.

    I can confirm that all of the blocks in each row look different on my iPad. :D

    I'll check the MBA tomorrow.
