Just wondering, do most of you color calibrate your monitors? If so, what do you use and are you happy with the results?

 

I recently got a new monitor, and the colors don't look quite right to me, so I ordered a SpyderX Pro and downloaded DisplayCAL to use with it (the SpyderX isn't here yet).

 

Does anyone else use the SpyderX, and is it any good? The reviews I read said the hardware is the same as the SpiderX Elite, and to buy the Pro and then use DisplayCal, so that is what I did.

 

Hopefully, it will be here this week, does anyone have any advice for when it arrives? Anything I should watch out for?

 

Thanks!

I've had the Spyder5 Pro for several years; easy to use and works great. I'm sure there are newer models by now, but this is a reliable, well-known brand that you can't go wrong with.
