    Does anybody have a color profile for this LCD? the colors done seem rich, i compared it to my samsung 226BW and the colors were a lot more rich on the samsung, I'm not going to return it because this is the only "defect" that this laptop has.

    would i be able to use one of those color correction things like the spyder or whatever?

    Thanks.

    Please do a search. I've posted the profiles at least twice and they came from people who posted them before me. There are tons of profiles on this forum if you could just do a simple search....

    I like deeper colours.

    Open up System Preferences --> Displays --> Color. Calibrate and use TV Gamma. Then leave the rest and finish.

    Well, those lines mean those kinds of color can not be shown on your macbook pro display. That’s why you feel the color is not rich. It is hardware issue. No matter what kinds of color profile you change, the counts still appear and some colors always cannot be probably shown. This panel just has 18bit(6bit x 3) color depth, and use dither method to display 24bit(8bit x 3) color which controlling by driver IC in the panel. If the driver IC algorithm is good enough and it would make the color gradient smooth. In the SR version MBP, LG-Philips panel is good in color gradients, but you will find some dither noises at the darker image. Samsung panel is very worst. I had never seen other kinds of panel, so I don’t know the result. Somebody would say “most of all laptop use 6bit panel.” But, those most of PC laptops don’t have unsmooth gradient except Samsung laptops. You can check those bellow color image pattern. You will realize what I say.

    I have the 09C81 display as well on my new Penryn MBP and i'll have to say the colors don't seem as true or vibrant as they should be. For example I have a bright red Dodge Viper as my desktop wallpaper and on this screen it looks like sort of a darker less vibrant shade of red. I've got a 2.2Ghz MBP with a 09C66 screen to compare to and the 09C66 is a little more vibrant in color. It has some yellowing on it though. I'm deciding whether or not it's worth it to exchange. I bought it from Amazon. There's no yellowing that I see on it which is good though but it's just not as "true" and sharp in color as I'd like. Naturally I'll be doing any photo work on my external S-IPS desktop LCD but still.
