    I have an HP w2207 monitor and the Eye-One Display 2 colorimeter. I have been trying to calibrate my monitor so my prints from Mpixpro match the monitor. I have calibrated to within the i1 specs based on a 5000 white point, 2.2 gamma and other Mpixpro specs. After doing this and comparing it to their prints, my red, green, blue and yellow all look more neon and fluorescent than the print. I am sure the print is correct and the neon looking colors are not. The skin tones are pretty close but the color block test charts are quite off. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit on an HP Media Center PC, 2.4 GHZ core 2 quad-core, 4 GB ram. Any thoughts why the screen still looks wrong? Is this monitor not very good? Could it be my colorimeter (it's only about 1.5 years old)?
