What an annoying test, the first one was fun but it got horrifically boring after that. Now I don't know if I have bad colour vision or just didn't care at all. :(

I see that you achieved a "zero" for your test score but you don't say if you are male or female and what age-bracket you are in.  Are you still "pups"?  Curious...

I achieved a "3" for my test score and I am in the 50-59 age bracket (male).  My weakest area is right in the middle of the blue-green transition area, which I believe is common for men.  My visual acuity isn't what it used to be (need reading glasses) but I'm happy with the results of this test.

even though i already know that i do have problem with colors, i did give it a try.  my eyes were hurt when taking a look at those, yet some of them are look the same in those rows  ;D

i bet that i will fail the test when clicking on check result...  that is why i am suck at photoshop and the mainly reason why i am trying to focus on techniques more since i somewhat trust camera color calibration :P

I see it well but its all a matter of interpretation, is it not?

Took the bloody test, scored 16 which is not bad IMHO for a 57 year old gentleman.  I suggest others take the same test. 

JR got a ZERO which is a perfect score! WAY to go JR!

Anybody else found it helpful to look at it unfocused?
(when it is sort of blurry, it merges a bit and an interruption is more apparent, IMO)

Opened page. Dragged about three chips, decided I had better things to do as well. Seems like the only point is to sell X-Rite software.

Without any negativity,   isn't it a little bit funny how several people don't have time for a short color test, yet found the time to write a message to inform us that they don't have time for it?  ;)

You are right and I thought about that when I responded. I plead guilty to an unnecessary drive-by comment.

 :) I really didn't mean there is anything to be "guilty" of (voicing your opinion in a nice way surely shouldn't be), I just found the contradiction mildly amusing, but I think you got that, which makes me now joining you in the "un-guilty club" with this post  ;)

I was wondering about that.  I normally have my monitor set to Adobe RGB, cuz' someone told me to-can't remember why.  But I changed it to sRGB because the color looked more saturated.  I don't have the patience to switch it back and try again :D

I have perfect acuity, as it stated...lol

I'm 30
on a Dell Inspiron E1705
Uncalibrated monitor ( Laptops are always bad..lol)

Although i've used the X-rite system, I've only found it to work REALLY well with a calibrated monitor....( duh...lol)
Otherwise, you're fighting back and forth with it's profile and your monitor's profile....not good. 

I've used it on Mac's...and found it to work just fine. 

It's just a tool!  If it doesn't work to your liking, either get a better rig or stop complaining.  It obviously works..as many professionals use it...studios...printing labs...it works!

And here are screen shots to prove I have PERFECT ACUITY..lol
