    I know there's a bunch of threads about .icc profiles, but after looking through all of them I didn't find any really good color profile for my screen. Majority of them are for LG panel.
    I found some - CustomMacRumors.icc and SamsungLCDCalibrated.icc but they are a bit oversaturated. I think it would be perfect to have something in the middle between default profile and any of mentioned before ones.
    I can't edit color profiles by myself so if there's anyone who can do it, I'd really appreciate you help.
    Or maybe someone already has such profile then please share it.
    And don't forget - MBA 2012 with Samsung display!
    PS I'm not native english speaker so if there are any mistakes - don't get angry :)

    I have a 2012 13" air with a Samsung display.

    The factory standard profile works okay for me.

    But these 2 profiles from AnandTech are the best I have found, for my eyes.

    (Yes, I know one of them is for the LG screen, but it works well on the Samsung, and is probably my favourite.)

    Thanks, I just tried both of them and LG profile looks good on my Samsung display

    PS I've also found an easy way to improve your colors without using profiles - Go to Settings - Accessibiluty - Display - Enhance Contrast. Move the slider just a little and you'll see the difference, the colors will become more vibrant and saturated.

    As for me - my best combination has become LG profile from the previous post and contrast enhanced by ~5%. Now the image on the screen looks the way it's meant to be :)
