Hey all, In January, I picked up a Spyder4Pro to go with the computer that I built. The difference between it being on and being off are very obvious, but I don't know if the calibration is accurate. The colors do look much better with it on, but it is much darker. My whites just don't look as white, because everything looks slightly under-exposed. When I look at other people work, I really love the colors that I see in the calibrated, but I like the brightness that I see with it un-calibrated (if that makes any sense...). I will confess that I am using a rather old monitor, and I am in desperate need of an upgrade, but I don't think that can possibly be all there is to it. Does anyone know how I can check to see if my colors are accurate for sure, or why everything looks so much darker?
