Macs used 1.8 for years, then finally in OSX 10.6 they came to their senses and defaulted to 2.2
In OSX 10.5 gamma 2.2 was recommended, yet 1.8 was default :rolleyes:

When using colormanaged software, the difference should not be visible, but use 2.2 anyhow.

Can anyone confirm if the Spyder 3 Pro will work to calibrate the MacBook Pro screen? I'm about to pull the trigger here and don't want to buy it if it doesn't actually work.

I never found either Spyder software or X-rite to be that good on the new Imac 27" LED. My problem was fixed with Coloreyes Display Pro (external link) calibration software. It does a much better job!

Used with which puck? (I use CEDP with a Spyder3 puck, but not on an LED display. I highly recommend the software.)

Have you used any other calibrators before the Pro?

Raymate, what settings for the Spyder are you using? I ask because I had similar problems calibrating my iMac with the Spyder3Pro until I changed the settings around.

I ended up setting the Spyder software for an LCD display, native gamma, and native white point (ambient light is set to Off). Also, before I started the calibration process, I set the color profile to default ("iMac" in my case; System Prefs -> Displays -> Color) and set the brightness to about in the middle. After calibrating with these settings, the color comes out much better.

Tried your settings and it is better but I still get a slight blue/cool picture. I'm wondering if the elite version will help

I tried the demo of ColourEyes and this seems the best but it's almost double the price of me upgrading to the elite software.

Coloreyes are superior to all of them on mac, i tried both spyder and Eyematch neither of them comes close if you use a mac screen. IMO.

Iv used spyder 3, eye1display 2, and colormunki.

Has anyone tried a Huey Pro for the MacBook? I've heard mixed reviews, most are negative but I'm hoping to hear from someone that actually tried using it...

I've heard too many bad things about the Huey to have ever even considered it.
