The Datacolor Spyder 4 Elite provides the highest level of monitor calibration and is the ultimate display profiling solution that is capable of profiling one or multiple monitors and projectors. Designed for professional photographers, creative professionals, videographers, or anyone whereby precise, accurate colour is essential. An extra sensor on the Spyder 4 adapts the display to the surrounding ambient light and measures the display luminance accordingly. Featuring improved accuracy and stability, the fourth generation Spyder 4 includes double-shielded colour filters for a precise colour match to CIE colour standards and improved long term stability. The average accuracy has been increased by 26% and the consistency between previous Spyder units has improved by 19%. More
Spyder4Elite software options for greater control - For greater control over color management Spyder4Elite provides additional features:
Spyder 4 Elite automates and simplifies display calibration. Install the software, attach the color sensor to USB, and step through the wizard. The sensor measures a series of colors on your screen and creates a “profile” that brings your display to a reference state. At the end, you can preview how the images look before and after calibration.

About Me Quality Oriented
Comments about Datacolor Spyder 4 Elite:
I have owned the spyder 3 elite & ditched it because of the slow notification on the PC that it had loaded the calibration, this remains so with the Spyder 4 Elite, but is less intrusive and you can carry on with your work immediately (this was not so with the v.3 elite you had to wait until it was loaded) so the improvement with the software is a step in the right direction - The hardware is also noticeably better than the old model, I've calibrated my monitor several times now & to date have had no reason to say anything negative about it, it has left my monitor as near perfect as you can get without spending money on a professional monitor- probably the 7 Filter/Detector has gone toward the colour calibration been much more accurate - an excellent bit of kit, worth the money in all respects.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

screen Calibration at it's easiest
If you are into Photography this is a must have. If you have more than one P.C. or Mac or both. This will allow you balance the colour and brightness between each machine
Used on multiple machines i.e. Mac/win7
About Me Adult
After months of thinking about it I tock the plunge. It has managed to set up each of my monitors to be the same. and wow it was a simple to follow instructions. It's takes about 45mins per machine that includes a 30min. warm up time.
Seems to do exactly what it says

A recent purchase to calibrate my ASUS ProArt PA246Q monitor. Initial reaction in using this device when preparing photographs for print is favourable - it appears to give a more accurate representation of what the camera has recorded and therefore provides a better basis for editing prior to photo printing.

nice and easy to use
Datacolor Spyder 4 Elite.
Finally sorted my monitor and computer screens.Doing lots of photo editing with my laptop monitor & separate screen. The colours / brightness / contrast now all agree. There's no unpleasant surprises with the colours when I switch from large screen monitor to laptop & vice versa.

About Me Professional
Excellent piece of kit
Essential for colour management
By DM - the lapsed biker
I purchased this as a first step towards trying to control colour management from monitor to print. (I've also got ICC profiles for my printer, paper and ink combinations).The Spyder4 Elite works well and appears to be a quality product. It was easy to use (by following the onscreen step-by-step instructions) and did change my monitor's calibration, producing an ICC profile for my monitor.The only thing that wasn't obvious to me, as a beginner to colour management, was exactly where the newly-created monitor ICC profile could be found on my computer. However, by checking in Photoshop, I could see that Photoshop was now using the new profile.By using the Spyder4 Elite and using ICC profiles for paper and ink combinations on my printer, my prints are now coming out much closer to what I'm seeing on the monitor, which is the end result we're all after, I guess.I recently saw the Colourmunki (competitor product) in operation and it basically works the same way, although the Colourmunki is quite a lot quicker in operation.
