Excerpt: After calibrating my monitor, I really didn't notice any difference. Maybe because my monitor came calibrated from the factory or maybe it just didn't do anything. It might make a difference on a monitor with lots of controls. My monitor is limited to what I can adjust.
Excerpt: I have been having problems with clients printing my pictures and the color not being right, I have the old original spyder but I the technology has just advanced so much, anyway things are perfect now.
Excerpt: This product did a good job of calibrating my monitor. I've only 2 complaints. 1. You have to have the monitor on for 30 minutes before calibrating, this meant I had to change settings on the PC so it wouldn't go to sleep and change settings on the monitor so it wouldn't go to sleep. 2. The counter-weight on the wire for the sensor (is that the right word?
Excerpt: I used the Spyder 4 Pro is calibrate my 27" iMac and an older 22" ViewSonic display. Installation of the software was straight forward & it determined there was a newer version available and automatically took me to Datacolor's Website. Using the product is easy and upon completion it made a big difference in both the color and brightness. An option allows for a reminder to re-calabrate at a future date. The software also takes into consideration the ambient light.
Pros: Corrects Brightness, Corrects Colors, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
Excerpt: I'm using dual 24" wide gamut monitors and have been relying on a Huey Pro to calibrate my monitors for the past few years and was satisfied overall. Guess I didn't realize what I was missing, because the Spyder4Pro has nailed the calibration in a way that I wouldn't have expected. The monitors response seems much more linear and "wide bandwidth" after calibrating with the Spyder4Pro. An already good match between my monitors and Epson R3880 has also been improved.
Pros: Dual Monitor Support, Easy To Set Up, Reduces Eye Strain
Excerpt: I have used this calibrator on many different computers and laptops. I have done the calibration with the light on and with the light off, outside and inside, in the sun and in the shadow and even in complete darkness. Unfortunately the results were very bad in all of those situations. In the best results, the screen was very yellow after the calibration. After all of this, I have contacted the customer service.
