Here's what I do:

I have the same Dell monitor calibrated with with a Spyder 2 pro and an Epson 3880 printer

I continued to have prints that were a little too dark


I heard Matt Kloskowski on Photoshop TV mention that he hated to look at his photos on a dim monitor. He said he just uses the SCEEN BLEND MODE if he wants to (lighten )the print.

Now before I print I make a duplicate layer in CS5 set the blend mode to screen and the opacity to ~ 25 %

My prints now look incredible
