I have the new MBP 15", the spyder 3 pro and the LCD3090wqxi external display. I've spent hours with tweaking white balance settings and following the advice of NEC and datacolor tech support. After reading deep into the datacolor Spyder 3 FAQ, I found a very vague reference to how the Spyder 3 did not initially work with my "wide color gamut" monitor but now "there have been some improvements." I went with the Spyder 3 calibration for 2 reasons: cheaper and the NEC spectraview does not work with the dual link adapter from the MBP, it's necessary to buy the single link adapter and do a work around solely to get their calibration device to work. Sorry this is long but it's a complicated issue and I'm guessing others here may have had similar experience and hopefully can offer some help. At this point I feel like Datacolor misrepresented their system as compatible with my monitor; their tech support said so. It was suggested I buy the $99. software upgrade to the Spyder3 elite. I did so and the calibration got worse! Anyway I feel ripped off and wish I had just gotten the NEC calibrator. Any suggestions?
