19 for me, but had to sit down for an 1/2 hour afterwards for my eye sight to recover!

Wow, Way worse on the laptop screen! Did the same test yesterday on the work Samsung monitor, and got 8. But 35 today on the Lenovo laptop. And i really tried to get the best score each time. But then i already knew this screen at home is rubbish, this is just further proof.

On a £120 work office monitor, can't wait to try this at home on the laptop with its terrible screen - where I edit most Blush
I wexpect those with a calibrated monitor and better colour gamit monitor score better.

OMG - 107 and all lost in the blue shades. I knew my cataracts were messing it up but its signifcantly worse than the last time I did it (its giving a brown / yellow cast that shows most in this blue / green range of colours) Sad

The rest of the colours were just about zero difference from the base calibration

Yes, I think the display (and its state of tune, hence X-Rite’s interest in providing this test) is a key thing here. Though even with my EIZO I had to try pretty hard.

Speaking of trying, effort is definitely another factor. Some people – ex-pilots, for instance – are quite vain about their eyesight, or are merely more competitive than others. They’re more likely to double-check the order of two dubious tiles by temporarily reversing them, and doing that often helps reveal differences otherwise hard to discern – but takes time and effort to do for all tiles.

well mine was parc Sad three figures ?)Blush

I must admit when you see those side by side photo editing examples for before and after comparisons......... sometimes I can't see the difference Smile
I now I have a color problem but with a score of 3 I'm happy with that.

A bit better than last time I did it, 63 vs 107 but still losing it in the same colour range as before Sad
