I recently upgraded to Mountain Lion (complete, fresh install) and did calibrate my Eizo s2243w screen this afternoon. I am really puzzled by the result.

First of all, the colors are not at all consistent anymore with what I get when I print on my Epson R3000 (it used to be the case on Lion) and look 'strange' on screen.

Second, the gamut displayed on the chart attached is smaller than sRGB and nowhere near AdobeRGB. On Lion, sRGB was clearly included in the gamut of the screen and the latter covered a significant chunck of AdobeRGB.

On top of that, I recalibrated my internal MacbookPro display and the gamut of this screen is even larger than the Eizo one.

So question: has someone here encountered problems with Mountain Lion and a spyder3Elite?

I have installed the latest datacolor software downloaded from their website (I uninstalled and installed again to test but with no improvement).
