Persistence of vision, part II
Some time back, I wrote about color drift of LCD displays, and about LCD scrubbing to get rid of LCD image persistence.
At that time, I wondered if running an LCD scrubber would get rid of the LCD drift. Well, over the past few days I’ve been running the scrubber on my Apple MacBook Pro each night, and this morning, I reprofiled the display.
Bottom line: scrubbing didn’t seem to make much difference that I could see.
As a side note, I’d observe that even the monitors I’ve bought which were very close to correct with the manufacturer’s profile out of the box have since drifted to the point where that original manufacturer’s profile is now substantially off.
There is no substitute for owning monitor profiling hardware and software and profiling your monitors (even your LCD monitors) at least monthly. It’s a bummer but that’s the way it is.
