Another nice looking toy for your desk.,
This review is from: ColorVision Spyder 2 Pro Studio Calibration Software ( Windows / Mac) (Personal Computers)
Yes, it looks good hanging from your monitor. Yes, you can now take pride in the fact that your monitor(s) are colour balanced.
Personally, although I can appreciate the theoretical advantage of using one, I am yet to see the actual rewards from using it.
I am using a high resolution Mitsubishi CRT monitor. If I calibrate the monitor three times in a 3 row, I end up with 3 very different profiles. That can't be right, can it?
What I am doing now is deliberately turning the brightness and contrast down to 90-95% before calibration, then turning it up again afterwards. Am I missing the point? Probably... but if I don't, the image looks worse after calibration than before. The colour accuracy is good, but the gamma readings are poor.
It does make a difference, but for this price?
