    Hello,

    I just had my ColorMunki Display delivered today,  I’m trying to cailbrate my laptop’s display as practice before I try to calibrate my desktop monitor (which is the one I really care about).

    My laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad U410. On the isplay & intrument tab, DisplayCAL  gives the display identifier as B140XTNO2.3 . If I pull down the Correction widget, I don’t see anything whose description stands out as one i should select (but I’m rather ignorant about displays, so there may be one that is relevant.

    I tried looking in the Colorimeter Corrections Database. There is nothing under Lenovo that looks relevant, but if I search for B140XT it comes up with B140XTTO1.0  by AU Optronics (which is suitable for ColorMunki Display).  I have no idea if it would be a good idea to try this one. How does one judge?

    Hi,

    This depends on the display and backlight technology. Very likely the correct choice for you is “Spectral: White LED”.

    How do I find out what the technology is? The Lenovo website just says:

    “14-Inch HD Display
    The 14″ LED backlit HD display delivers bright, crisp visuals in 16:9 widescreen.”

    Anyway, I do not see a choice that looks like exactly like that one. The nearest I see is “Spectral: LCD White LED IPS (WLED AC LG Samsung)”. I’m guessing that the TN in B140XTN02.3 means it is Tn technology, not IPS.

    Anyway, selecting that choice worked reasonably well, I think.

    I guess it will be even more appropriate for my DELL P2415Q monitor.
