    First, try the profiles you already have -- Adobe RGB and sRGB are way better than the default profile.

    System Preferences > Displays > Color > Adobe RGB (1998)

    I did.

    Those profiles aren/t good as well.

    I set sRGB and then put gamma to 2.2. And it looks much better but still I think that monitor is to bright (brightness = 0).

    Did anybody made some calibration?


    Thanks!

    I have calibrated mine (with a spider2).

    But as I'm a total :apple: n00b where the profile data has been saved :D

    If you can help me find it I would be more than happy to send you the profile.
    However as each screen and ambient lighting situation is different it will not be as accurate as a real hardware calibration.

    If you want it just send me a mail at

    How the heck can your brightness be ALL The way down and still be too bright?

    I have mine one or two clicks from full brightness.
