Windows 7: Samsung 27" LED SyncMaster S27B350H Calibration Help!

Samsung 27" LED SyncMaster S27B350H Calibration Help!

Hey dudes!
I just got a Samsung 27" monitor, and compared to my other monitor which is 24" the colors and contrast etc. on the 27" is a lot worse.
I have no idea on how to calibrate monitors as this is the first one I have had to calibrate.

Is there some sort of freeware to calibrate monitors which ACTUALLY WORKS?
I read a few threads about others who had the same problem, but the threads where old.
They ended up buying software etc which I can't afford.

Any help on this problem?

Thanks in advice!

The website linked below is pretty good for calibrating contrast and brightness, provided you know how to adjust it in CCC. It won't help you much for color through. For example, I have a 22" TV that I'm now using as amonitor with my laptop and I could tell the picture were very different. I spent the past 3 days trying to get them to at least look similar and it ended up coming down to color saturation on one screen and brightness on the other. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the answer
Now that I am done trying to adjust the scree, I can see green fringes on some of the letters standing close together, letters like m,n,l, and i are some letters I notice getting the green fringes between them. Is this on purpose?
I changed my "Pixel Format" in CCC which helped if I changed it to YCbCr 4:2:2 Pixel format.
But when I changed over to that format, all of the icons, and things like bookmark had wierd lines in them, like on the Netflix logo, the "N" in a red square, got black borders?
Why?
It looks like the contrast or something similar, any way to fix it, or make it look better?

Edit: It looks like it is a bit pixelated, and the lines on the edges of icons might be caused by it, or because of seomthing else of course. But the monitor is a 1920x1080p, so that might be it. Not sure, as I dont know anything about monitors.

The color warmth of the screen looks slightly off as well, which is something I cant change on this monitor :/
And when I look at some things that are blurred, it gets pixelated lines in the shaded part, or blurred part..
Hard to explain.

Here's a few pictures I took of my monitor, as the "prt sc" didn't notice it.

have you tried any of the settings in control panel /display

there are a few settings that may help , you could try clicking the resolution link also and have it detect your monitor, it may adjust the settings or give you recommended settings,

I would change the pixel format back. Most monitors are designed for sRGB. The issue with the text might be fixed with cleartype. Type cleartype in the start menu search bar and press enter. It will walk you through the process. The pixilated lines you mentioned is called banding and can be caused by a number of things. The site I linked to before has some information on it. You might have to adjust gamma, brightness, and contrast to fix it, assuming it is still there after changing the pixel format back. The color warmth might be unfixable. Is it unchangeable on both monitors? Did you look through the monitors settings and not just the CCC settings? Did you see if color saturation has an effect?

Thanks for the answers
I have already tried the options in the control-panel, although I actually found a fix!
The monitor had a "Sharpness" option, which I had overlooked when I calibrated the monitor.
The slider was on 100/100, I pulled it down to around 50. It solved the pixelation which I mentioned in post #5 and #6. (Sorry for posting several posts! New to forums, still haven't learned to use all of the features.. )

But this solved everything for me, so thanks again!
