    I just picked up this display today, I cannot get it to match the imac display. I have tried various profiles but it is always warmer (more yellow, even though that is a bad word around here :) ) It seems to be even across the panel and if I just look at the ACD one might even say it is more pleasing. My imac almost looks a touch too cool.

    Is this a bad one? Should I return this? Anyone with any experience with both displays?

    I just did the expert settings and adjust the color temp slightly on this one but its not a perfect match still to the imac.

    Should I not expect a perfect match?

    If you want a perfect match you need to get a professional color calibrator. Even after that they might not be 100% matched, because the panels aren't 100% identical.
