Monitor variance

I'm running twin Sony HS75P monitors on a Matrox 650P card. THE SETTINGS ON BOTH LCD'S ARE EXACTLY THE SAME, but the colors are slightly different, especially white, on the second monitor. On the first, white has a faint blue tinge; on the second a faint yellow tinge. Again, the settings for both are the same. Can anyone account for the variance? Thank you.

Are you sure the settings are the same, it sounds as if the color tempurature settings are set to different levels. If they are the same, then the backlight system on one of the monitors may be causing the variance. This could be from the inverters not outputing exactly the same voltages or the ccfl tubes degrading.
Nothing is ever matched exactly and you will have to try to match the lcds by setting one and  matching the other to it  even if the settings do not match .
