About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Datacolor Spyder 5 Pro:
Well, well, well. I didn't expect that. I'm using a MacBook Pro Late 2011. I've not done any calibration before on this or other computers I've had. Thinking I'd get round to selling a few prints I heard that calibration was a good thing to do. I bought the Spyder5 Pro and when I got round to setting it up I was surprised at how easy it was.I've read many comments whilst reviewing this item and others form X-rite and there's nothing but complaints from both sides about how hard it is to use and that nothing had changed blah, blah.I installed the software from the Datacolor website, ran through the options that it said on screen and then started the calibration. After about 10-15mins total time I was fully calibrated.After looking over a load of photos on my Flickr account I was very impressed. The colours seemed much better and felt truer. This even goes for looking at the Wex website and others too.If you're not looking for a fully pro calibrator tool and this is in your budget then I personally think this is a good purchase.Thank Wex for a timely service as per.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nicely made produt
Since my aim is to start selling my photos, I thought it was important to ensure that my monitors ere properly calibrated, so I can be sure that the best quality images I can produce are what leaves my computer.As it happened, no adjustments were required on my Macs as they are both a few months old, but at least I can now be sure that this is the case.Calibrate camera, computer and printer, then you have it all covered.
A great product
This resolved the problems I was having between the colours I was seeing on screen and those that came from the printer. Easy to use and instal.

Everything you need unless you're a colour geek
By Radical Edge
This is all the colour management that most people need at a price that won't break the bank. The process is generally easy, although I found a lack of clarity in the availableinstructions when it was suggesting a colour temperature to select on my monitor. This was a good teat of support which was responsibe although it took 3 iterations to actually get my answer. The ability to measure your ambient light levels and adjust accordingly is very welcome - I actually changed my lighting and re-ran the test to get a better result (hint : edit in dim light). It will remind you to re-run the test every month, and this is much quicker, but guards against the monitor aging. Great product - highly recommended
Should have used one of these a long time ago, now my pictures look how there meant to be.

Datacolour Spyder Pro 5
If you have any desire to make prints, you definitely need a calibrator. The amount of money you'll save vs. the printing trial-and-error method is definitely sizable, more so if you're making large prints. The reason fo having your monitor calibrated is to get good prints. You need to see what the actual picture looks like, not what a super-bright-and-colourful monitor does to it. It's the color casts that can often make prints look unprofessional and ugly.Once installed, the program holds your hand through everything. Start by picking your monitor type then the manufacturer. Then you just put the calibrator over your monitor and plug it into your USB port. That's it! Just press go and your screen starts flashing colours on your screen and then the software calibrates it.
