After a lot of frustration and experimentation I finally got the monitor to display the same color temperature setting as what I was seeing on the lcd. Believe me when I say I was getting mad that after setting my camera and using custom white balances...that the images were perfect on the lcd but not on the monitor...I manually set the Spyder calibrator (which wanted to set at 5000 Kelvin on automatic) to make the monitor set to 5800 kelvin to match the lcd. What a difference to see the actual beauty of the image on the monitor and not have to do so much tweaking in Lightroom. Now it's a thing of beauty and the workflow has speeded up so much with that change as well as being more selective with models that I am now faced with making super critical decisions on what to edit since my perfect image ratios have jumped so high. It's important to sync these devices in order to bypass the frustration and in the end it becomes not unlike that of a parasite attaching itself to its host with both receiving a benefit...truly symbiotic.
