Monitor calibration for korean monitors?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps

I recently just scored a Crossover 2560x1440 monitor off craigslist for $150 ( win! ) and I already have a Shimian 27"

I havent decided if i'm going to use both monitors at home, or take one to work ( as a graphic designer, screen estate is king )

The crossover is a bit on the warm side ( color temp ) I would guess around 5500k, while my shimian is on the cooler side around 6-6500k.

Obviously these monitors don't have any build in settings aside from brightness, but is there any decent software options I can try to get the two monitors closer in the color temp range?

The monitor was super cheap, even though i'm broke I jumped on it, I may just flip it, i'm sure I can score at least a $100 profit on it.

And FYI: the build quality of the crossover is much more impressive than my Shimian, the frame is all metal compared the plastic, and the stand is much heavier and more sturdy ( though it does wobble, and I replaced the crappy shimian stand with a Vesa arm that bolts to the desk.

You could break down and buy a calibration tool like the spyder. It uses a sensor on the monitor, and adjust everything via software.

Yes, thats true, I do know of the spyder, but its also a $150 tool, and I'm not a professional photographer and my work does not need to be crazy precise in color that some artist and such require.

I've tried adjusting the RGB in the display control panel, but it just looks worse when I try to tweak with that.
