Try change the sampling size for the eyedropper from and averaging
setting to 1 pixel in the Properties inspector. Zooming in can also help.

Also check that View>Macintosh Gamma(or it would be View>Windows Gamma if you are on a mac) is not checked. That shifts the screen output to simulate what it will look like on the inverse OS(quite handy, actually), but the problem is it will also cause the eyedropper to pick up the offset shade rather than the "true" shade it should be.
