I scored 8. Eyes got tired of staring at the colors and concentrating. Maybe I could have done better. but it looked ok to me!

I aced it. But I took my time at it.

Color vision is interesting in that it's variable from one person to the next.

Women (practically) always have full acuity in the red range of the spectrum, and can differentiate small differences in shades of red. That's why there are so many shades of lipstick for them to choose from.

But men, well, the genes that determine the red range color acuity of a man's eyes can combine in one of 44 ways (autosomes) and some of them have different effects on color vision than others. The best case scenario gives a man equal red acuity with women. Some men have reduced ability to discriminate between shades of red, and
to them, that counter full of different shades of lipsticks may look like multiple examples of just a few shades.

Hm. Maybe lipstick red subwoofers could increase the sale for big subwoofers for the opposite sex?

First attempt, I scored an 11 off of my crappy 12 yo. CRT monitor. I'm going to wait a week and retake it using my Pioneer Elite.

i got a perfect zero. im 27/m. it was kinda funny, if a color was not in right place it sort of "popped" out of screen compared to color immediately to its right/left. when everything was in order there was a smoothness and feeling of balance, at that point i knew it was right and i went to next row.

Good news I got 44.

When I was 25 I learned that I couldn't hear above about 12K. That info saved me thousands of dollars I never hed to spend on Hi Fi speakers. Now I know I don't need an expensive projector either.

Scored zero, but honestly wasn't expecting it. Some didn't look quite right, but placed as well as I could find. Spent about 3-4mins, uncalibrated Dell 3007WFP-HC.

Someone I know did an unscientific test several years ago. Using a sample print from a large format printer he was servicing, most men he tested could not spot a flaw in one of its colors. Every women he asked, could. That makes one wonder why women don't seem to care as much about HD quality VS men..

Damn, I was quite proud of my 37 until I read through this thread. All my mistakes were in the purple/blue area. Took the test on my 13" macbook. I am 25 as of two hours ago. Single as of last week... Ladies??

Just kidding I know there are no ladies here..

I'll try the test again sometime, but before I kill a 6 pack and not at 2am.

I got 7 on my first try on an uncalibrated old LCD. I assume on a better monitor and after spending more time I could get a perfect Zero. So assuming I am capable of that I have to ask myself, why I could care less about ISF calibration. Sure, Dynamic mode on my cheap PJ is too out there even for me with its un-natural over saturated colours but I prefer the image of say the normal mode that might be nowhere near this 6500k malarkey than the dim 6500k cinema modes.

This is not a meaningful test. Screens that are uncalibrated and wider gamut will have better separation between the blocks making it easier to see the difference.

When I mentioned to my retinal dystrophy doc that I have observed a *slight* difference in red sensitivity between my eyes for many years (a 'blink test' on a sunny day yields a slightly redder/warmer coloration in one eye vs the other . . . but typically NOT noticeable with binocular vision!), he had me do two hue tests (with little wooden balls) for each eye to determine if the difference was large enough to be detected by the test (but the difference in the scores 'was not significant'). Instead of using binocular vision, you might try testing each eye individually 'for fun'...?!

I got a 6 on my laptop LCD with a little assist from my plasma about 15-20 feet away when I realized I could mirror it. I'm of the opinion that a better monitor would've helped, but maybe that's just as good as I see color.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)

24 for me. Not bad for a 57 yr old. The hearing test should prove interesting. I will do it when I get home with hearing aids in and out. Shhhhh, no noise now.

Scored 8, with all of the errors clustered in the center (blue / green). I'm 42, male and spent 4 minutes, but really don't think I could have done better with time. Done on a Apple MacBook Pro.
