    Check this thread. Download and try that color calibration icc file and see if it removes the tint.
    Note: the color calibration icc file is located at the middle of the page.

    That file worked fine for me. Others said it worked fine. Try a different calibration then, in Display>Color, selct Apple sRGB profile or Adobe RGB.

    So are you going to keep it? I think it's pretty good and I got used to it quickly.

    Yea It's an Improvement. But I'm sure it can be better with a professional touch to each's individual display. But It's a keeper.

    I think it's very color accurate and natural. Will be good for graphics and photo work if you work in that field.

    I assume you're talking about LED screen? Is this matte or glossy?

    Not an improvement at all, makes the color balance worse. Gives the display an odd blue-ish tint. 2.4GHz 15" SR MBP, glossy screen.

    The original color balance is perfectly fine in my opinion.
