I really did not think I would score perfect.

PLEASE POST WHAT MONITOR or iMac (which IS a monitor) you used to arrive at your answers.

I'm curious if Apple hardware does better than others.

I find this interesting.

I arranged mine, but have not score mine yet. Waiting for my retinas to settle down/rest in-between tile swap sessions.

iMac G5 ALS 17"

I have very crappy retinas. One of my eyes 'sees' a very red world, the other a very green world. Due to disease.

But, I think I did well.

Score: 14

Oddly, I seem to have the greatest trouble with colors that I tend to like: blue-greens. I used a Dell 2707WFP monitor hooked up to a Mac Pro 1,1 with stock video card and dirty reading glasses.

Scored perfect on my Dell 2005FPW.

Being a male with 40-year-old eyes, I was quite surprised to get perfect.

I got a 50 on a MacBook 2.0Ghz NVidia graphics. But I didn't really take my time; in any case I could care less about color accuracy - I think it's bunk.

My proof: people have different retinas, concentrations of rods and cones, so different people see color differently. Most people see RGB but there are people who have a 4th color sense in their eyeballs.

Further proof - it's relative even to light exposure of an eye... close one of your eyes for about 30 seconds and color will look different to it.

Yes, I know how much money is spent on color matching every year and how "important" it is deemed to be and there's no refuting that in absolute, objective terms color is a very exact thing. It's just that people perceive it differently, so I don't know what the point of getting it perfect is.

12 on a mini 9 (leopard) with brightness all the way down on the couch with a lamp over my shoulder, the blinds open and Sesame Street on TV (snow day - watching TV with the kids). Considering all that, I was a little surprised how well I did.

Surprised at my age to be perfect.
On a NEC multisync FP1350.

I worked for years as a colormixer and supervisor of the color room at a wallpaper factory. I had to take a Munsell 100 hue color test (which this may be) with color dots on black plastic pieces. Only had one mistake, statistically insignificant as it was just two adjacent colors switched.

Perfect : 0

Dell 2409FPW.

If you go too far off-axis it becomes nearly impossible to distinguish a difference though.

If you had to redo 500 rolls of wallpaper because you didn't give the customer the color he wanted, your balance sheet would let you know what the point was.

79.

I can't blame the HP 1755 monitor/pc that the college has provided me. I blame my dad and mom for me being color blind.

My wife chooses my ties in the morning. Don't know why...

"Based on your information, below is how your score compares to those of others with similar demographic information.

3.5 year old 13" MacBook (non-Pro), calibrated. Apparently the BS floating out there about crappy color rendition on the "lower end" panels is just that - BS. As you might guess, I'm picky about my color and yes, I use a Dell 2001 FP for my real color work.

Still, this old MacBook panel is plenty good enough for everyday color work.

4 on a 23" ACD.

I'm sorely disappointed! Should've waited and looked again before scoring.
