Re: Epson 3800.......Dull output..

I don't have a Color Munki, but use the EyeOne Display2. I believe the default brightness calibration X-Rite suggests for LCD's is 110, and I don't usually go much lower than that.

Another stray thought: Are you by any chance on a Mac, and using Snow Leopard and some version of Photoshop earlier than CS5? When Snow Leopard came out, a lot of Mac Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) users suddenly had troubles with dark prints from their 3800's. The problem seems to be a driver update issue between Adobe, Apple, and Epson, and supposedly has been fixed in CS5. If this sounds like it could be your problem, I can describe a workaround that has worked for me.
