Does your video card support dual displays? What interface is each one using (DVI, HDMI, Display Port, etc.) - the cable/port may be affecting the output.

How/why do you expect the source files (online paint swatches) to be correct?

Big mistake.


One other thought on this, I did consider that I was not getting a true color from the website so I did open photoshop and put in the Hex# for the color, if everything was correct that should match the swatch correct? I did go ahead and ordered a xrite i1display pro today. I talked to the tech support and she said that the had a team work together with BenQ on the Master Palette software so even though it is compatible with Datacolor Xrite is preferred.

The problem may well lie with the source files used to create these colour swatches that you are getting online. The simple answer may be that the files simply don't accurately portray the colours to start with. Depending on the actual colour involved you also may find that if the image is in sRGB that the paint colour is out of gamut, and will never be able to be an accurate match to the swatch.

The last time I looked at a printed paint colour chart even that had a big disclaimer that the swatch may not accurately represent the colour of the paint, due to the different processes involved. Really the only accurate way to know what colour you are going to get, once the paint has been used, is to have a sample of the actual paint on some similar surface. Anything less and all bets are off.

I'm not giving any credit, or credence, to some unknown corporate chain of command deciding what hex number should represent a paint color.

Get a bunch of execs looking at the latest version of the high dollar website someone was lucky enough to sell them, and who knows where they end up.

I had a spyder that wreaked havoc on my NEC and did not play nice on my iMac. I got the dedicated NEC unit called Spectravision that made by XRite for NEC. Later I got an XRite i1 Display Pro for my iMac. Works great.

The data color was the issues, profile is completely different. It was way faster to perform, the data color took close to an hour and 1displaypro took about 15 minutes.
