I'm beginning to understand why people who work with images use calibrated screens...

I suppose it's good for printing, but I doubt it helps much on the web when everybody else use other screens than yourself. At best one might hope to arrive at some kind of average. Then mobile phones may increase things contrast, to make pictures look "better". My old Sony Xperia phone had its BRAVIA engine enabled by default, with disastrous results. wacko.gif

Audio production has the same problem with speakers.

Yes, but it would help to know that what you yourself produce is the norm. If my own screen is set off in one direction and I want to show you an image and your screen is set off in the opposite direction we get the worst possible discrepancy. If my screen is perfect the worst case scenario is only half as bad. cool.gif

Not that I'm going to start calibrating. But it's annoying.

At least assuming that your reference screen's properties is the average, and that other screens deviate equally much in all directions. But what if most consumer screens have the same fault, in the same direction? Backlight bleeding is an example (though perhaps not a serious one).

Some things probably tilt in the same direction for everyone. Like the way screens loose contrast and brilliance when they age. But some things like colors are just user preferences unless they are left at factory settings.
