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.

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
