On another note, changing monitors isn't going to help... it's still going to be in a less then ideal setting. And the calibrator that was mentioned probably sits right against the screen (most suction cup to it) and does not take ambient light into account. Sure it's a great start to have the monitor right in the first place, but where it's located matters.

And again, you can't know how the users are gonna see it anyway.

Buy a hood for it. http://www.compushade.com/
Those are kind of cheesy, but a good idea with the retractable feature.

That hood looks mighty silly. I'll be installing some dark curtains today. We'll see how much that helps.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't get one like that, but that's the first I've seen that is retactable. There are nicer ones available. Lacie sells monitors with built in hoods and there are hoods available that are a lot like theirs. I'm not sure you can buy hoods from them though.

Pantone may sell hoods...
