Summary: I purchased the ColorMunki based in part on various reviews in photography forums. Wanting to take my post-processing work to the next level and having just purchased an expensive color printer, I felt I should calibrate my monitors to ensure accuracy. The ColorMunki were very frustrating and produced results that provided no assurance as to their validity. ON my primary workstation I have two identical mid-priced (And well reviewed) monitors.
Was not able to get two monitors on the same machine to in any way resemble each other

Summary: I tried three different times, one using the simple and the other two using the advanced options. For the advanced I tried one with and one without using the dynamic light setting. But one of my monitors always ended up cold and very bright the other warm and medium bright. Admittedly these were two different LCD monitors from two different manufacturers (Samsung 2343BWX and an ASUS VH236H).
Summary: I have a high end NEC monitor with an x-rite calibration system that came with the monitor. Unfortunately the calibration software that came with the monitor is proprietary and could not be used with my new laptop, so I bought the inexpensive x-rite system. First problem was installation. When restarting my computer after installation, I got a message saying that the computer could not find a certain dll file.
Is this something most of us really need and is it doing what is intended?

Summary: Ok so let us get something straight from the start, I am an amateur photographer. I was introduced to the Passport after watching an instructional video. Having an Eye One Color Calibration kit for my monitors I figured there was an opportunity to take things a step further. I'm a big proponent of adjusting White Balance in Camera during photo shoots, but this it seems is controversial with my colleagues as it relates to Camera Raw and post processing.
Summary: I needed my displays calibrated before I sent some of my work to print and was really undecided between the ColorMunki Display and the Spyder4 Pro. I did a LOT of research online trying to pit one against the other but there wasn't any real comparison available. I finally ordered the ColorMunki Display primarily because of 3 reasons: 1. It wasn't clear whether the Spyder4Pro supports multiple computers.
Summary: Everything is high quality and nicely packaged. My only complaint is that despite spending a few hours with the software, and trying to read the generic help on the web site (since no documentation comes with the product), I still have not been able to get anything to actually work. (I have yet to see any sign that there is any LightRoom integration whatsoever.
