Inexpensive, useful; the app, however...

  • 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
  • Cons: Monitoring App Is Buggy

  • Excerpt: I do a lot of calibration because I am a photographer. Before when I did not know yet about monitor calibration, I was confused because the photo I have in my computer has different color when it send to the internet. Then it came into my study that monitor calibration is really essential for a photographer so I did bought this calibration and once in two week I do calibrate my monitor. It is really 95 percent helping into to the color control of my photos.

Uncertain Results

  • Excerpt: The device made a significant difference in monitor settings but the print still does not match monitor image, though closer than it was before. Not sure where the problem lies, perhaps the cheap TN monitor or some set-up along the work flow. So, for that question mark only I'm giving it only four stars.

Solid hardware works well in pro studio

  • Excerpt: Use it for video, compositing 3D to Live action and photography production. We have a DaVinci color station, Smoke and After Effects compositors and 3 photographers processing for 2 magazine publications and needed a new calibration software for the studio. This worked well for dual monitor setups and was quick.
  • Pros: Dual Monitor Capability, Easy To Set Up, Mac And Pc

Easy Screen Calibration

  • Excerpt: The Spyder4Elite did a nice job of calibration my monitor on the first pass. Installation (Windows 7) and registration was easy and it knew what the settings were for my monitor (NEC PA271W). Changes made to the monitor calibration made sense and will correct differences between what I was seeing and what was being printed.The only drawback was the USB cord was a bit short and stiff.

Big improvement, but...

  • Excerpt: The Spyder4Elite made a big improvement in my monitor. However, when I was doing the calibration, I ran into an issue where I couldn't change the brightness on my HP LP2065 to the value the software suggested. I did the best I could with it and it did make a big improvement but it would make me a lot happier if I could get a more accurate calibration.

Good for modern displays

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace an older calibration system, because many of the older sensors are not suited for use with modern LED-backlit monitors. However, another GREAT thing about the Spyder4Elite is that it also allows you to calibrate iPads, a capability that I haven't found anywhere else. Makes a big difference for viewing photos on the iPad. An add-on kit {$) also allows it to be used for HDTV calibration. Very pleased so far!

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased the Spyder4Elite to provide a better calibrated monitor, so i can make better digital files or prints. The software installation make the process easy to set up and do calibration. There's also calibrations for your laptop and iPads and calibration of DSLR cameras.<br /><br /> Highly recommend the Datacolor Spyder4Elite for photographers and videographers to have a well rounded system that meet your needs.
