    Monitor calibration

    by dm_td5 » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:55 pm

    I've just upgraded to one of the new MacBook Pro Retina and a 27" Thunderbolt display. Apart from being a fantastic screen on the MacBook Pro it is pretty well calibrated too. But the Thuderbolt is definitely a little out. I have a Spyder3Elite unit but when I used it on the Thunderbolt display I ended up with a considerable worse result.

    Has anyone tried calibrating a Thunderbolt display monitor?

    Congrats 2 of the best of the best :)



    I think your problem will be the same as mine after purchasing a MacBook Pro Retina NOTHING NOTHING will ever look as good as the Retina .I played around with the
    display settings within OSX on the 27" and came to the conclusion as good as it is I just gota get use to it , Or wait for the 27" Retina. God I feel sorry for non Mac users :D :D :D
    Calm down its not real life its a internet forum:)

    I keep thinking that might be the case :(

    I did originally purchase the two with the idea of running my editing palettes on the retina and the image on the thunderbolt. But the retina is so good I'm almost tempted to reverse that and use the 27" for the editing tools :lol:
