Finished Calibrating my X61S, and just WOW what a difference that made! I'd say this monitor has improved the most out of all monitors I have calibrated to the point where I'm satisfied with the screen now. At the end of calibrating there is a sample photo and you can see the before and after, everything looks MUCH warmer now and not so washed out...I would say 100% color improvement here...

Download the file here!

To use the profile in Vista it should be used under
Control Panel -> Personalization -> Adjust Screen Resolution -> Color Management -> Add The file.
Generaly these are stored in "C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color\X61S-ThinkPad Display 1024x768.icm"

Set the File as default!


*note: You will need to disable Adobe Gama if your using it or have it installed as it will overide windows color profiles.

*note: To FULLY calibrate your monitor you would need one of these tools, but if all x61s displays are pretty much the same, then this profile should get you close. Colorvision recommends re-calibrating every month for profesional use, but I don't do it that often, the initial calibration makes the most difference!

If any of you try my calibrated profile, please post wether it made your screen better or worse, its not gauranteed to work, so I'm interested in the results. You can always go back to the old profile with a couple mouse clicks.

could you repost your color profile for download ?
appreciate it, thanks in advance.

I'd really appreciate it if you could also post a non-RS link.

Sorry for bringing this up from the dead, but does anyone still have this colour profile? Looks like RS are no longer hosting the file, and all I can find are links to RS.

Here's hoping I didn't upgrade from my X40 to my X61S four years too late :lol:

User gunston hasn't been on the Forum since August 2011.
You could try sending him a PM, but don't hold your breath...
