    Hi,

    I have tested the ICC profile suggested by mac1133.

    I confirm it makes a great difference !

    I keep this ICC profile as the default one.

    Thanks mac1133.

    Used the mac1133 profile on my new T420 with the LG display, and it makes a huge difference! The big thing is contrast; your custom profile ups the contrast noticeably.

    While not as good as the X220 IPS display or the TN ones on MacBooks, it's getting better. Thanks again.

    Good to know! Now i'm more up to buy the LG and install it myself, the only drawback is that i'm afraid of having problems with SAT...

    I've found these LG's in eBay-europe http://www.ebay.es/sch/i.html?_from..._nkw=LP140WD2&_sacat=See-All-Categories check

    as you can see there're two different models ( B1 and D1 ), there are changes between them? wich one is better?
    my goal is to have a matte finish of course.

    Thanks for the mac1133 icc profile linked to earlier in this thread. It makes a huge difference to the perceived quality of the t420s screen.

    Could someone give me a step by step on applying the above icc profile? I couldn't do it after some googling. Thanks a lot!

    To install an icc profile in Windows 7:

    1. Install the profile by double-clicking on the downloaded profile
    2. Enter Color Management through Control Panel
    3. In Color Management, go to the devices tab and check "Use my settings for this device"
    4. Then click the "Add..." button then select the appropriate icc profile.
    5. When added, select the profile and click the "Set as Default Profile"
    6. Then your done applying the profile.

    Thanks a lot pcyl! When I tried to install it myself I forgot to check "Use my settings for this device". My bad. :p

    The customized icc profile above made colors less blueish and more vibrant. :)

    I also just installed the color profile on my T420s.

    Difference it makes is quite amazing, the screen looks much much better now.

    Kudos.
