I'm using Spyder 2 Express to calibrate my Apple monitor, which is connected to my Apple laptop. Spyder 2 Express will only calibrate one monitor so, to get the external monitor calibrated, I have to make it the main screen. It only has backlight control, which I set to what I think is about the factory setting. Then I run calibrate.
The problem is that the results look far too saturated. In fact, the monitor on the laptop, which has to remain uncalibrated, looks nearer reality. (I've just been working on a portrait, and colour / saturation deviations are obvious.) AND, the uncalibrated laptop screen looks very close to the printed outcome (which therefore also looks like reality).
When I change the laptop monitor to be the main screen, and calibrate it, it too looks over-saturated.
Am I doing something wrong, or is the device not working properly? (I've tried it in dim light, and the same thing happens.)
