Good link there.
I scored 8 on an non-calibrated monitor too.
Anyone trying the test should make sure the brightness and contrast are set high enough - those ranges of hue really change when you tweak the monitor settings around.

I agree about brightness and contrast. I think better the contrast ratio and resolution in monitor better the results could be.

I scored 12, but since I'm partially color blind, I'm not surprised.

Interesting. I scored a 4 (also on an uncalibrated monitor). All of my errors were in the blue range.

I probably need to calibrate. I just picked up some prints from a local Wolf & they are all under-exposed compared to the digital file.

12 on my work monitor and 48 on my laptop (I was rushing that one and will do it again later). I'll test my new desktop sometime this weekend. I expected the work monitor to be worse. I do a lot of editing on my laptop which might not be such a good thing...
