    I am still trying to figure out where the problem is.
    I use a gretagmacbeth eye 1 d2 calibration system
    I am calibrating a 30" Apple cinema which only has brightness adjustment.
    I am using the the advanced mode.
    I enter Native for temp, 2.2 gamma, 120 LUm.s
    I adjust the brightness, then when it comes back with the actual calibration I get about 11K for the temp.. which seems way too high??
    I was hoping for no more than 7K..
    Is this normal?
    I don't know where the problem is, in the monitor or my laptop.
    I just had a new Logic video card replaced in it.
    any thoughts?

    11k?
    That must look horrible!

    The native temp of a 30" Cinema is 6479 °K.

    I don't know if I can believe my readings from the puck or the monitor is way off.
    Actually it does not look horrible.
    So I should see @6500k as a temp reading? I don't.. I wish I could figure this out..]
