Hi all,

Anybody owned and used the above to calibrate your monitor?

I tried and after calibrating, my LCD monitor seem to appear rather dim and warm... is that normal?

There are 3 settings after the calibration. Warm, neutral and cool. Which did you use?

Even at this cheap price (<S$100), this device is a disappointment.

It seems to be a very common problem, about having a very warm, yellowish colour cast. I got one myself (not from MO by Jason) and wanted to try it out. Also very disappointed as I get the exact same problems as many people have reported.

Some have reported satisfaction with their Gretagmacbeth, but these seem to be in the over(or under-?)whelming minority, while others have reported success after a software upgrade.

Not me, though. I've updated the software, tried to calibrate it under light, total darkeness, etc etc, nothing seems to work. Guess we'll just have to wait for the next s/w update. In the meanwhile, I've totally disabled the thing.

(I use a Samsung 17" SyncMaster 713N LCD.)

question, pls help.

i use it for crt monitor, so come out a "white" and a "black" target board.

it say we are suppose to adjust brightness untill the top half of the "white" look like its bottom half. same goes for the "black" target board.

were you guys able to get it? no matter how i adjust, i cant get the top to look like the bottom. is it because my monitor is :thumbsd: .

thanks.
