post #7661 of 25888
I'm seriously considering buying a Spyder4 Pro to properly calibrate my monitor. I'm at 120Hz and have gone through all the ICC profiles posted in the main post of the thread. The best one, which is the one I'm using now, still has a blueish tint and the gamma is a bit off.

Can anyone vouch for this calibrator that it works well and properly calibrates the monitor? If I get it I'll upload the ICC profile it makes to hopefully help others out with their overclocked monitors.

When I run the patcher, it shows that everything is patched. I even made the new monitor a primary and tried patching and it still shows patched.

remove the patch, plug both of them in - and patch again i guess

I know the home theatre community - are HARDCORE when it comes to calibration - generally dont like Sypder, they normally recommend the i1 Display Pro for entry level calibration. That or the X-Rite ColorMunki (they often say to use both)

Yeah I only recently learned you can calibrate TVs. Makes sense of course; just never thought about it.

I think my Panasonic plasma is new enough. Gotta find out how to get into maintenence mode or whatever the deal is...

im at 120hz it seem to run fine, is there a way to test it? also I noticed that my screen is a little darker is this normal ?

Dont get into maintenence if you can avoid it. I'm guessing you have the ST60? Or the step down S60? If you have the higher VT or ZT60 (then good for you smile.gif - but look at highdefjunkines.com - they have settings you can use (if you prep, or dont prep your panel)

Using hardware calibration is superior of course - but going this way isnt bad, or hire a pro calibrator after about 500hrs.

Yes its normal, try lowering your timings - search the thread for mine if you have a radeon, or Spartan F8 if you have a geforce card. Mine barely dims at 120hz

So I should get this instead of the Spyder4 Pro?
http://www.amazon.com/X-Rite-CMUNDIS-ColorMunki-Display/dp/B0055MBQOM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1380744755&sr=8-1&keywords=X-Rite+ColorMunki

It's $13 cheaper than the Spyder.

They did when I bought it at least.
