DO NOT BUY This probe, Unless you are calibrating an IPS monitor @ ~200nits and above.

This probe is better than spyder5, but still has dark read issues, and uses software compensation for Higher contrast ratio displays.

CAN NOT RELIABLY Calibrate VA-type or OLED type displays, or even IPS displays set lower than 150nits.


If you have a VA or OLED panel, you need either the i1displaypro ($135 black friday), or colormunki display probe (~$150 every day)

Protip: Try DisplayCAL instead of included software. And the SpyderX sensor is the same between the pro and elite. The elite just comes with more bloatware. Just spring for the pro and use a better calibration software anyway.

Time to upgrade from my old Spyder 4.
I always felt I had inconsistent results from that one. And it took forever. Here's to hoping that the SpyderX is more consistent and faster.

how does this compares to X-Rite i1Display Pro? Can I use the SpyderX to calibrate monitors, TV's and projectors? (this might me dependent to software instead of hardware)

This seems most ideal for someone who makes digital art for a living. I'm not sure if anyone else could really justify it, based on my very limited knowledge of it. Would it calibrate a monitor that is old and has deep blue hues? Also thinking it would be most justified if you had a small business / many people to share it with... otherwise renting it if possible might be the best thing

I've been looking for one of these for a while, but I'm not sure if it makes more sense to put the money towards a new monitor instead. This is undeniably a good price though.

So the 4 works like this: You mount the device in front of your monitor. It reads the colors as displayed using the software it comes with. You adjust your monitor settings based on whatever subjective color you see on the screen fits your taste. That's basically it in a nutshell. The software will continually nag you to run the tests as a maintenance to make sure they stay accurate. For most of us simpletons, once here and there is sufficient.

Im no pro but I do like to edit pictures and send them off for printing. For this, I wanted to know how well adjusted my monitor was. Also, helps when throwing pictures up on social media. You dont want colors overblown or undersaturated on the typical display.

Professional picture calibration services can be over $200 for the 1 time service, my company charges $250. How many monitors and TVs do you have that this could work on? If it's over 0, then buying the hardware to do it yourself is cheaper.

Obviously, there's a learning curve but a picture calibration, done correctly, can make the picture look way better compared to factory defaults. I can't speak for this specific one though.
