    Eizo monitor with a Xrite eyeone will be the best combination , somehow or rather Eizo high end model do auto calibration and it also depend what working color space you are dealing with....SRGB???

    You can calibrate your montor without hardware. But your eye will not be stable enough for each time you do it!

    i tried to somehow correct for the wrong image my monitor gave me, first without hardware colorimeter/spectro. soon after that and after many tries I got a spectro and I dont regret that not for a second. a completely new world of color will arise on your monitor. so consider getting some colirmeter/spectro for calibrating your monitor ;)

    Check monitor is pumping out 6300 Kelvin

    1. Crank the contrast to 100%
    2. Brightness to 50%
    3. Adjust colour saturation until colours appear "natural"
    4. Adjust brightness until white is "paper" white.

    It's the first thing I do when jump onto some's computer/TV lol.

    Don't spend your time for nothing... Buy a spectro or a cheap colorimeter!

    I calibrated the monitors with the help X-Rite. But the best result at me turned out when I hands corrected color settings in the menu of the monitor having opened on it the file printed on my printing equipment. Now I for 100% see that will be printed.

    Well, in the past, AdobeGamma software was of the best ways to make a monitor calibration without a calibration hardware. It was good, I don´t know about the newer tools...

    But, without calibration hardware and/or display calibration capabilities (as eizo, lacie, etc.), the calibration becomes very limited, because the software can not assure what is being output, instead of this, you tell it when the parameters are being hit, so it´s very subjective and limited.

    How would this calibration work for a macbook pro retina screen? I saw some mention the apple cinema monitors that are easy to calibrate, are all mac screens the same quality?

    best as meter from the Gretag Eye down. so you can monitor any calibration options. But not all 100% true to color

    Totally agree with Bob..
    it is reality that human eye is unable to judge the white color in certain situation. In fact every color which our eyes judge is a combination of different colors so, there is no chance of calibration with out a hardware.

    You need a colorimeter. Your eyes are not stable. Your brain compensates.
    Good luck

    Well as many have said already. Hardware is the best way. But before colorimeters scanner operators and image editors used to used grayscale patches to calibrate the monitors. Patches from 0 to 100 in 5 or 10% steps. Make sure that the color is neutral and the steps are visible till the end. But that was then and now you should use hardware.
