    Well, I think spyder4 is ok and also seems to be a much better puck than the spyder3 by which I was not convinced at all especially concerning the inter instrument agreement and longevity.
    However when talking about the Sypder4Elite, I would rather get an i1 Display Pro for the same money.

    Thanks for the input, mcjam45. Tbh, the i1DisplayPro was my first choice but I was swayed by the Amazon reviews. The i1DisplayPro got 3.4/5 stars, the Spyder4Elite got 4.4/5 stars.

    Most of the negative comments are related to the software, which was rewritten from scratch and admittedly was really buggy at the beginning, but now I feel that most of the glitches have been fixed.

    I was using colornavigator until I installed mountain lion, which doesn't work!
    Waiting on a new version for September

    Have found basICColor which was a saver.

    You only know what works when you try and match two screens?

    Hi, friends.

    I use a kit of ProfileMaker+LaCie Blue Eye Pro Proof Edition. If the display has it's own LUT then LaCie is enough. Full auto mode will do the job for You perfectly (for example, with Nec MultiSync LCD2090UXi). But if You deal with display that has no LUT, then You need to make hardware calibration steps (contrast+white point+luminance) using ProfileMaker MeasureTool Monitor Calibration function. The fact is that although You can do this steps using LaCie BEP PE software, it is better to do them with ProfileMaker, because LaCie does them wrong.

    I have Spyder4Pro calibration device, and use Datacolor software ver.4.5.4, working fine,
    and if we want to calibrate in detail we can do it in the BasICColor.

    Use hardware looped calibration if you can

    NEC monitors with internal hardware remapping of LUTS via SpectraView II does a perfect calibration. However, you want to also consider measurement devices tweaked by your monitors manufacturer for the colors that your monitor generates. That's ideal at least.

    We have a Spyder3, didn't really work too well so we bought an i1 instead, still not perfect but that's probably down to the nut behind the wheel
