    Its misleading to call 1.8 "standard" and 2.2 "Television". They are just numbers, 1.8 and 2.2 are also only the decoding number, they need to be paired with an encoding number (0.55/0.45 respectively).

    2.2 is not only on TV, its used by most computers and cameras.

    I don't know what gamma number I'm using, but I left it at the Mac's default since it looks fine to me. *shrug*

    The display on my SR Macbook looked really bad, so I tried out David's profile but that looked even worse on mine. So I tried making my own profile, and setting the gamma to 2.2 greatly improved things, but I had to enhance the contrast in universal access by half a notch to get it just right.

    Technically I would be "both". On my work computer and one of my home machines, I use 1.8, which I prefer somewhat. On my web development box, however, I have it at 2.2 so it more closely matches what a Windows user is going to see while I'm working.

    Wow. I didn't even know this was changeable. I like 2.2 much better than 1.8.

    1.8, the Mac standard. 2.2 is too dark (though when I'm in Windows, with no calibrated profile, it looks nearly the same as OS X...).

    2.2 is way better on my iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro. Makes a huge difference and makes everything look way better and less flushed with white.

    I calibrate my monitors to 2.2 via the colorvision spyder software, it's much better than 1.8 :)
