    So I just replaced my other iMac today for a brand new one at the apple store due to some screen bleed and an annoying dead pixel. So far I'm please although I still notice some screen bleed (no dead pixels though) when the screen is entirely black. Oh well I can deal with it, but I'd love to know what I could use to calibrate my screen to get the most out of it.

    i'm not sure if you can calibrate a glossy monitor correctly...but if you want to, check out the Spyder monitor calibrators. the Apple store sells one for $70 i think.

    I use the Huey Pro and love it. I had no idea how 'off' my colors were, even in an new iMac out of the box.

    funny - i just re-calibrated mine!
    i read about SuperCal in another thread so i gave it a try. well, i ended up just going back to using the color sync utility that is in your sys preferences. i did a new profile and it came out very similar to the one i first made when i got the iMac back in August. i wasn't pleased with the SuperCal results at all.

    so ColorSync ftw! :apple:
