    I recently purchased a HP 2009m glossy 20" monitor. I have a late 2008 model macbook pro (glossy). I have been having a hard time getting the colors and whites to look exactly the same. I have tried calibrating the display over and over but the whites never look exactly the same even though the default white points are the same for both the macbook pro/hp displays.

    Any hints outside of getting a sensor/external program?

    Give up. It's impossible to perfectly calibrate even two displays produced by the same manufacturer at the same time without using a hardware gizmo. Glossy displays are even worse for calibrating. Just settle for a best guess.
