Spyder3 Elite - Possible Colour cast?

Hi All,

I took the plunge and bought a Spyder 3 elite.

I've setup it up and calibrated the monitor and everything but it seems like there is a slight magenta colour cast, its really odd. I'm wondering if I get it setup right.

Has anyone else got a Spyder and had similar? I could be that I'm so used to seeing an uncalibrated monitor that its gonna take my eyes some time to get used to this.

I'm trying to think of things I could post to so an example but I'm unsure what I can do as everyone monitor will be different

Cheers
Garrie

Think i've managed to get there. Everything looks nice now.

This is the profile as close as I could get on my cheap dell monitor.

Luminance @ 120, Gamma 2.2, White balance just shy of 6500k
