    Hello!

    i use a MacBook Pro Retina 15".

    I just purchased the Dell U2415 and I love but the color temperature ist a little bit off. It's just too warm.

    As a photographer this is a big problem.

    Any ideas oder suggestions what i could do?

    Thank you!

    Calibrate it!

    Calibration is mandatory for serious photography work.

    Check out Spyder Pro or Color Munki.

    Problems

    I cannot get my out of the box new Dell u2415 to work with my MacBook Pro (MBP). I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011).

    After working with Dell Tech Support, they tell me it is "Plug-n-Play" and incompatible with Apple. However, I find on YouTube and here, people using the Dell.

    I told Dell, I cannot get any Menu or what have you, to come up on the Dell. Only the "Inputs" selection. Frankly, after two nights and four hours or so (also with Apple). I'm about to give up.

    Ideas???

    Edit the EDID of your monitors and use either the Displays Preference Pane or SwitchResX to change the ColorSync profile. It worked for me on my two Dell monitors.
