Spyder4ELITE Display Calibration System
Budeb, B&H Photo
7 July 2014
Excerpt: Excellent product. I saw immediate resultes after calibrating my monitor and printing a photo. Definitely worth the peace of mind that I am editing with a properly calibrated screen. So happy . . . I recommend this to anyone who is a photographer. The installation was simple and straight forward. I also loved the speed at which B&H shipped this to Ontario, Canada and with the customs clearance they offer at check out it makes dealing with B&H a breeze.
Excerpt: Easy to use and the results are excellent. Overall I have used Spyder Calibration for the last few years and have been happy with my last Spyder 3. Recently however I have been having a difficult time getting my color right and ordered a new Spyder 4 Elite. My calibration from my Spyder3 was way off! glad I upgraded and now my prints are exactly as I see them. Also I like the feature that it helps with monitor brightness...
Excerpt: I waited a long time before investing in a calibrator. I read many reviews and recommendations before making my choice. The Spyder4ELITE has worked great. It was easy to install and use on several different monitors and pc's.
Excerpt: I was very frustrated with not being able to print photos that looked like what I saw on my monitor. After receiving the Spyder4ELITE I was amazed. It was easy to set up and once it is set up the Spyder does all the work. I couldn't believe the before and after difference in my monitor's appearance. Now my photos look as they should. I now have confidence that what I see on my monitor will be what I see in the printed photo.
Excerpt: I bought a MAC 27" desktop last year and Lightroom 5. I edited my vacation photos and sent them off to make a photo book. My $2600 MAC's calibration was off. The Spyder corrected it and was easy to use and understand.
Excerpt: I purchased this for multiple applications, namely for providing color accuracy with desktop and projection displays. It certainly fulfills this requirement with aplomb, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to calibrate their display for better photo/video editing. My biggest qualm is the included application. The software for calibrating the display is alright, as soon as you get it running.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Improves Color Accuracy, Reduces Eye Strain
