non matching LCD monitors

Hey all
Just bought three new Acer LCD monitors, one of them doesn't match the other two, being too cool. I've been through every setting I can find and can't get it to match. Should I take it back or should I get a monitor calibrating device?

Thanks!

I invested in a Colorvision Spyder... handy if you have only 1 LCD, perfect if you have 3 non-matching. It's amazing how 'out' your LCDs are before you use this device to correct them.

One digital connection, one analogue. The 3rd monitor is connectedto a 2nd PC via analogue. I used to have three matching CRT monitors which matched perfectly without touching them.
