After trying to decide between the SPyder 3 pro and the Eye One Display 2, I ended up getting the eye one, after the sales person said that it is much more accurate then the Spyder 3.
I just finishing calibrating and have tried to calibrate a few times, but each time the screen seems REALLY bright, colors look ok, but the brightness is very bright.
I set the brightness level on my Macbook Pro to 3 levels below max and then 4 and 5 levels below max before calibrating, but each time after the calibration the display is quite bright - if there was a histogram for the display, i'd say it would be blown out
During the tutorial, it did say that the default gamma for macs was 1.8 and windows 2.2.
Now that the new Macs have a default gamma of 2.2, could this be causing an issue??
I'd appreciate any advice on whether or not the Eye One Display 2 works with the new macs or not and if people have found it to work ok, I'd appreciate some pointers on what I may be doing wrong. I spent an extra $100 on the xrite over the Spyder, so if the Spyder doesn't have issues, I'd like to find out, in case the store will let me exchange the xrite.
Just another note, while the box says Eye One Display 2, throught the install icon the name of the program is Eye-One Match 3.
