I don't have problems going to Frontiers from my MBP, Spyder-calibrated LCD, though you do have to watch the angle of the screen some. I don't generally do Web stuff, but that's such a browser crapshoot that it's bound to be problematic.

so is it washed out in the browser or print or both? Like compuwar said...it could just be the browser color stuff messing with you, however, if you print it and it still looks poopy then you might just need to calibrate the system...i personally have no advice on that, but a lot of the guys on here do calibrate their stuff...
