Excerpt: I used the Spyder4ELITE on a Dell U2410 monitor connected to a Dell Precision T7500 Work Station. 24 GB RAM Xenon W5580 CPU @ 3.2 GHz Windows XP Professional x64 Service Pack 2The enclosed instructions were easy to follow and the whole process was approximately 20 minutes.Resulting color improved over monitor factory supplied sRGB.
Excerpt: I have a triple monitor setup and tried every possible way to setup calibration. I tried the multi monitor sync and configuring them independently. The 3 monitors are so different that I might as well have done it by myself. I ran it 6 times for each monitor and every single time it came out with a different result. Monitors were always either too blue or too green, and never looked correct for all 3.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Not Accurate, Poor Mult Screen Support
Excerpt: A very effective and easy to use system. I have two LCD monitors and it took less then 5 minutes to calibrate both of them. The calibrations really improved the color quality of the displays. I'm really pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Reduces Eye Strain, Reduces Glare
Excerpt: I have been using this for a few months now and calibrating two monitors every two weeks. Before purchasing this device I would not have realized how much of a shift in colors can occur in such a short period of time. The software allows you to see the before and after calibration screen views.....what a difference! I calibrate two monitors at the same time every two weeks and am very glad I do. They are placed side by side and the colors are identical.
Excerpt: I purchased this product to try to get my monitors to match my photos. I calibrated my three monitors - and yes I use three monitors all the time. When I was done they all looked different. So I Tried the Studio Match. The first two ended up similar but my main screen was darker. But when I tried to match the third monitor the program froze with an error message. I tried to Studio Match from the beginning and the same thing happened.
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.
