Careful... not for Mac Tiger users and as for PCs....
 
If you own a Mac and use OX-X Tiger or later, this is NOT the device for you. It may be fine for a Windows/PC user. ColorVision phased the Plus edition out toward the end of 2004. Their support for it is quite limited here in the middle of 2006. Mac users with OS-X Tiger or later OSs will discover that synching a printer profile with their monitors cannot be done with the included software. There is also an annoyance in performing this synching even if you use a Widows-PC. In order to synch your...

Spyder 2 is just OK
 
I am not entire fond of the Spyder 2, but it is much better than Adobe Gamma. One catch is that it doesn't take into account the ambient lighting like the Eye One Display products. It also requires manual adjustment of the monitor controls rather than using a common, nearly universla interface to do it programatically. And last, they are VERY slow with drivers and do not release any WHQL certified drivers; this is a big deal if you want to use the hardware with Windows Vista x64 (you can't).

What A Difference that "Little Spyder" Makes
 
The Spyder 2 Plus is easy to use, directions are clear, and the results are amazing. If you have spent hours adjusting the controls on your monitor to obtain "correct" colors, you will enjoy the ease of use of the Spyder and the improvement in screen colors. It is also easy to calibrate your scanners and printers so that "what you see, is actually what you get."
