Thanks for a very good thread so far!

I just got the Asus and upgraded from my Spyder 2 to a Spyder 3 pro since I now have a multi monitor setup, one of which is wide gamut... But I'm having a really hard time getting the calibration right. So far my best luck is setting the monitor into "Adobe RGB" mode, with "native" for the brightness and temperature. I end up adjusting brightness somewhere in the neighborhood of 17 once the Spyder software starts doing its thing. (I want wide gamut for use with photo editing destined to inkjets). Considering that supposedly the Asus is really well calibrated to begin with, the difference between the "out-of-the-box" results (with the ICC profile downloaded from Asus) and the Spyder 3 Pro calibration is pretty huge, with the Spyder 3 profile looking distinctly green to me.

Any tips on what mode or settings I should be using to get the calibration right?
