I have the LG for my rMBP which I am very disappointed with the brightness and color. Anyone out there who has calibrated their rMBP, may I ask if it's possible to share? :( i'm trying to love this screen but somehow somewhere I can't.

This is what I currently use, not sure if will be good enough for you but it is for my Samsung screen.

No two screens will be exactly the same, so using someone else's calibration profile isn't the best idea. Even within the same manufacturer there's a lot of variance from screen to screen.

Exactly. If screens didn't very, there would be little point to calibration.

That is what happens when you use the OSX icc file on the Samsung rMBP under windows.

However, the OSX icc file on the LG rMBP works fine under Windows.

I have both. LG and Samsung displays are totally different beasts.

sigh :( was hoping to find someone who has a calibration profile that could be the same as the Samsung's. :(

perhaps you're right. Was trying to see my luck if there was any calibrated profile that would fit me. I don't know how to calibrate myself. what I did was download a bunch of profiles and select to fit what pleases my eyes more. haha :) cheers!

I've been asking for a calibrated profile for the LG display for a few weeks now, it seems that nobody has one (or is willing to share ^^)

Here it is .. again , from an LG retina .. pretty good delta E .. I need to measure the default to see how far off that is ...

You have your graphs you can upload? Which i1 (D2, Pro, etc...) and what software?
I1 DisplayPro, used the I1 Profiler ( latest version) ..the only output I've saved was the QA report ( 24 Color check patch versus LAB) ..White point was targeted for 6500 .. luminosity at 120 .. I can zip the QA report if you'd like..

Yeah man that would be awesome. Always curious :) Last time I used i1 profiler (with my i1 pro, awesome little device huh?) it gave me "ok" results. But since one of my main hobbies is TV calibration (with the i1 pro and Calman), I wanted more control.

Best I could find is ColorBasic5. Doesn't give me the reports that I like (again used to Calman/CalPC). But still does a good job. avg DE of .24 with sRGB (80 cdm2).

^^ Wow ...that's tight ..Yes, the device is pretty slick ..I also have a Cinema 27" display, and a Dell U2410 hooked up to the Windows desktop workstation, so it was time to invest in some home calibration . I haven't had time to tweak the calibration for the MBP .. what's posted is my second pass .. will recalibrate in 2 -3 weeks .

wow this is nice! enjoying my lg display more now. thanks so much!
Glad it makes the display look better for you .. Calibration doesn't always do that for people, as color, etc can be very subjective .. This profile targets 6500k and 120 lum , which might be a little too 'cool' and bright for some people that prefer a warmer white .. Calibration also insures accurate color ..it won't necessarily make colors more vibrant, etc .. or 'better looking' ..that's the subjective part .

Umm using this profile for my LG screen with retention problem and the color temperature is cooler for sure.

I think I'll try my Spyder 3 and do my own calibration.

I can upload the calibrated profile for my LG screen if anyone cares (each screen being different etc.). I used a Spyder 3 to do it and chose a white point of 6500k, with some ambient lighting present.

One thing that surprised me that the preinstalled profile was already very close to the calibrated one! The calibrated one is just a touch warmer. For my old MBP, the cal. profile was vastly different from the preset!

Please do, I have yet to try any profiles, but surely the more the options the easier it is to find your own favourite.
