    Can someone link me to information about this/ tell me how to use them? I tried the other ones that came on my computer, and they all were incredibly blue...

    Yeah I'm interested too, awhile go before I made my purchase, and I saw a thread that had people posting calibrated color profiles, people that knew what they were doing. Since I don't, I'll gladly use one of theirs.


    Sorry I couldn't be of more help, I'm in the same boat!

    Color profiles are how you want the screen to look.
    The best color profile is the one which is correctly calibrated to your screen.
    All of the color profiles which come preinstalled are calibrated to fit many screens, not just your own. Therefore, their colors are not the best or most accurate.

    Calibrate the screen yourself to get the most accurate colors. Google how to do so.

    So I can't use ones that people have already made?

    You can, but it's best if you use your own.

    I did, and not much changed, I assume they come pretty well calibrated from the factory. A lot of the pre-installed profiles looked so blue!
