I landed right smack in the middle of the state, work in Oklahoma City, live in a small city on the eastern edge of the metro area called Choctaw.

No. 2 for me also - I was glad to see that everyone else thought so, too. It looked a bit bluish, but I'm on my laptop in a motel at the moment and I know it tends to be bluer than it should.

Does Fry's carry anything like the spyder calibrator? Maybe it would be worth it for me to take a trip down to one. I use a number of different monitors at various times (work and home) and while most agree somewhat on color (with the laptop being the most different) they don't agree on brightness. Pictures that look fine at home look too dark at work. On the other hand, the printer is close to my home monitor.

You probably don't need any more answers Roy, but #2 on my monitor also. #1 really does not look natural at all, the colors are too contrasted and just "off" from what you would see in real life.
