    Interesting test. I scored an 8, but I don't have a calibrated monitor. I had to step away from looking at it after a while because I was starting to go cross-eyed. I saw that some of the hues didn't fit where they were, but I couldn't find a better position for them.

    Scored a 2, and my monitor is calibrated to my eye, but no software.

    score = 5, sweet! But my vision is bad for focusing...sever astigmatism. So maybe the color is compensation for me? At any rate, I prefer B&W images, such a waste! :rofl:

    I had a score of 3. I found very easy to arrange the colors and didn't even double check.

    I really like my matte screen on my macbook pro. It allways gives good results, even if it's not calibrated :)

    Well on my Macbook pro I remember starting to calibrate my screen and half way through setting it up I couldn't be bothered. I just quickly clicked through to the end and saved it as my calibrated screen.

    I did the test now and I really think I should properly calibrate my screen. I got an 8, Does this mean my eyes are bad or my screen needs to be properly calibrated?

    I think 8 is not that bad. The test is pretty precise. How well do you need to tell the difference in the shade of colors in "real life" situations?

    Actually, for me, it used to be pretty crucial. I used to work in a paint store and my ability to match paints and colors. Not to brag, but I got so good at matching paints that my manager and co-worker left me with all of the color matching while they got to do all the fun stuff :( .
