    Hi, I am currently trying to calibrate my two monitors, a LG 27GL850 and a Nitro XV273K using DisplayCal and a Spyder 5. But I think I am doing something wrong. I have attached a image of my displaycal settings, trying to calibrate both for 6500K, 2.2 Gamma. Doing the calibration on both seems to be going great. First doing the RGB thing, and getting it all in line. Then after calibration, buth end up at a good 99.X% of sRGB. However, the whitepoint of the two monitors are way different after calibration, when displaying a white/grey background, The LG display is red-tinted, while the Acer is more green-tinted. I have followed TFTCentrals displaysettings for both displays. What am I missing? I am guessing I am just doing some stupid simple mistake, and any help to point me in the right direction would be super helpful!

    You would be advised to choose one monitor as a reference and profile the other display using the visual white point editor.

    The underlying issue however is the the spectral power distribution of each display doesn’t match. You can start by setting the correction in DisplayCAL to “White LED” if you haven’t. The limitation is that these are generic corrections so a perfect match cannot be guaranteed. If the results still are are still visibly different you can select a correction from the user database. Generally i1Display Pro and related devices are more populated so you would have a better chance of finding a matching correction.
