I can only speak to what I have - a Greta Macbeth Eye-one. I've been happy with it. Easy to use and keeps me where I need to be.

Spyder2express for me. My prints from WHCC look exactly the same as on my monitor. Also, it was under $100.

I still haven't bought one. I calibrated my monitor using a print off my photo printer, matching the tone/color/etc of the monitor with the print. Works great for that.

And when ordering prints from WHCC, I just pay $1 extra per file for color correction. One of these days I'll just have to buy some calibration gear/software.

Or will I? gringrin

I've been using the Pantone Huey for a few years. I like it for its portability, use it at home and on the road with a laptop. Without breaking an arm and a leg the Huey and Eye One are the way to go.

If you want to get more expensive Pantone ColorMunki Photo - Monitor, Printer & Projector Profiler at around $450 is getting good reviews. Does printer profiles even!

I use the Pantone Huey Pro. Under $100 and it seems to work great.

    • It has either a nickle or chrome plating, I am thinking it is probably nickle. 
    • THAT ladies and gentlemen.......or gentlemen ladies is how you set the hook.   Look at the size of those hands!!!!!!!!!        
    • very very nice!!  good for you!!
    • Well, I want a president that Hollywood DOESNT want
    • Different Strokes for different folks. Ewwww
    • Team Lodge Extreme is a brand that makes what you're looking for and has for a few years now. I think Big Bite also builds one with that functionality and purpose in mind as well. Both are very nice houses.
    • I wanted to share my recent find, I was searching the items on a local online auction and saw what I thought was a Pimple (or Pimpl) spear (it was only labeled as a stainless spear). I stopped by the auction house to take better pictures and compare it to others and I was convinced it was a Pimple, I even had a spear collector I know agree that it was a Pimple. I started bidding on it at the very end of the auction and unfortunately someone else also knew what it was since I found myself in an intense bidding war with one other bidder. We battled back and forth for what seemed like forever, it almost got a little personal and just when i told myself I'd only place one more bid the other person stopped bidding. I was the winner of the spear at $340 (I've heard of other selling for $600 on auction)   When I went to pick up the spear I was given a dumbfounded look and asked "why did you spend so much on this spear???" I explained the history of the spear and the spear maker who was born in the 1860's or 70's depending on where you read the history and immigrated here from Austria.  While I was explaining this a group of people gathered around to listen to the story and they had no clue what they had and were amazed the small spear was that old and that desirable.    It will be a family heirloom that will be passed down in my family for generations to come. Just to even hold this piece of history is awesome. 
    • Well, there went my bfast...thanks a lot!! Maybe I should use my "Delete" button...hmmm...   And I always used to think highly of Duffman.
