    Final

    So I had another go and this is the most neutral I can make it, your mileage may vary.

    Go to Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays & double click the icon you see there, this will open the profile in ColorSync Utility. There are 2 ways to see which screen you have:

    1. The name on the colorsync window shows something like Color LCD 0000xxx-oooxx-9CC3-0000xx-0000xxx.icc (its the 9CC3 bit or whatever your screen is)

    2. or in the colorsync window click on the last item 'mmod', its under the model name.

    a couple more profiles to play around with

    thanks but i feel like you rely on your eyes when you calibrate, right?
    every one of them is slightly off. wish i had a tool for this.
    anyways, i like v2 most..

    Yup, its all with the eyes, and I too wish I had a Spyder or Eye One device to do this more accurately.

    silly question but what tools do people use for this and does it really make that much of a difference?

    sorry to bring back an old thread, but that's what search is for right? Anyway, I used this on my 9CC3 screen I got on my 2011 MBP and it looks great. Thanks again. This is already an amazing display though, whew, much better than my last year's model.

    Built in calibration tool. Or a Spyder or EyeOne device.

    You need to do something, there is definitely a color cast out of the box. I think my 2010 17" was blueish before calibrating.

    Are the 2011 MBPs using exactly the same screen models as 2010?

    I think so b/c this model was found in some 2010's. It apparently is one of the better ones.

    Just finished calibrating a 9CC3 display in a 2011 13" MBP and figured I would share my findings...

    Tools Used: Eye One Display 2 Colorimeter, ColorHCFR (windows VM), Eye One Match.
    All measurement and calibration was done with brightness set 7 steps up from the bottom.

    Some baseline measurements (default color profile):

    White Balance Default
    [​IMG]
    Not bad at all. Color Temperature is very close to 6500k.
    Surprised to see this as most recent MBP displays measure way too cool out of the box.

    Gamma Default
    [​IMG]
    Average gamma near 2.6. Way too high (should be 2.2).
    Display looks nice and "vibrant" this way, but blacks are crushed and everything is too "contrasty."

    White Balance calibrated
    [​IMG]
    Measures a bit better than the default profile. But it's so close it would be tough to eyeball a difference.

    Gamma Calibrated
    [​IMG]
    Much better. Just a tad under 2.2. Detail in dark areas is back and the overly-contrasty look is gone.

    All in all it's a decent laptop display.
    Unfortunately it does suffer from the same blur / color shift when scrolling through text as most recent MBP models.
    In addition to this 13" 2011 MBP, I've seen this in two 15" 2010 models (one standard resolution and one high-res). Based on my experience the default color profiles on these models are setup to mask this as much as possible. However, this makes the overall calibration less accurate. After a bunch of trial and error I discovered that performing the calibration at a low brightness level seems to minimize this quite a bit. If you calibrate at a high brightness level (higher than 50% or so) the color shift is very dramatic. If you calibrate at a low level it is pretty subtle and much more tolerable.

    Anyways, if anyone wants to give my post-calibration color profile a shot I've attached it.
    As usual, its specific to my display and even though you might be using the same model the results might be different.

    As soon as I got the new MBP, the first thing I did was calibrated the display with Spyder express 3 and it did make a difference. After calibrating, my prints looks same as in the display, so far am happy.

    Would that work on the 9CCD LG Phillips 17" as well?

    I am new.

    Thanks!

    Not all of them. My MBP has a 9CC5 screen rather than the 9CC3 referenced in this thread.
