X220 TN panel dull colors no more

#1 Post by Droider » Fri May 10, 2019 1:40 pm

Hello everyone,

X220 TN panel is nothing but mediocre at best in terms of color vividness and accuracy, it is dull colored and has a stupid bluish tint. It is just bad however you look at it. There is an utility called Display Profile(supports windows xp,vista,8.1,10) https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/downloads/ ... rofile.zip
which can change windows color profiles with a simple click, easy as that so you don't have to deal with windows built in color management or install monitor calibration software, nor mess with intel graphics settings. There're many custom or official color profiles (*.icm ) available at https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm for you to download and try out yourself until you find the sweet spot to your liking.

my fave one is hp_l2335_user_icc better for web browsing and movies.

Stumbled across this thread while wiping my old X220. I have used my i1display puck + displaycal to calibrate the LTN125AT01401 Samsung panel. If you have this panel, this file might help as it's a calibration of this exact display model:

However, YMMV as not all panels are exactly the same so yours may be slightly different out of the box, however its likely to be a closer match to mine than a random other one :)
