    Hi,

    Today I received my Spyder 4 Express. I calibrated my screen by following everything what the manual and software said. But I don't see what makes it soo much better. To be honest I like the stock icc profile more. I did get an update from windows for my display called Lenovo Thinkpad Display drivers, although I have the b156hw01 v4 matte...

    Also the icc profile that was generated from the Spyder 4 was mote greeny en yellowish looking.. Just try for your self I added all the profiles that iI use in the attachment.

    I just don't get why people say that it's a MUST to calibrate the screen. The calibration tool was a waste of my money it costed me 90euros!

    are you sure your new profile has been applied? do the colours change when you switch to default profile and back?

    Yes also I recalibrated again. But now it gives me a more greeny looking filter. It also has a green ghosting effect. I reuploaded the profiles in the attachment.

    checked your profiles, calibrateddisplayprofile is the one I am currently using as well, its the most accurate profile for 95% gamut matte I have tried so far.
    TPLCD95 is one installed by windows updates when it detects 95% gamut screen. It does not change any colour settings at all.
    Your one looks green, something must have gone wrong with the calibration.

    Well the calibrateddisplayprofile is my favorite too. But why do some people say that if you calibrate it yourself it's much better?

    Also the software did say that i need to set my color temperature to 6500k. How do I do this?

    i have found very little variation between same models of screens, usually a profile made for a specific model will look near identical when applied to another same model screen.

    maybe you calibrated your screen with calibrateddisplayprofile calibration already applied?

    I believe some Thinkpads do use AUO's 95% gamut displays FYI.

    Calibration software should auto reset to no profile before it do the job, what setting you using for calibration?
    typically should be
    6500k or D65
    120cdm

    Do you get a report of gamut coverage and volume? I never used spyder software so I am not sure. Also try dispcalgui.
    Imo, spyder is like a mac ~~ try a x-rite.

    i've attached one for matte of the same model, I found it to be very accurate and work very well for my 90% glossy in my previous laptop.
