    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tool! Quickly loaded and installed. Found that my monitors were both badly in need of color correction. Very useful tool and easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put this off too long!! This little gadget delivered as promised! It was an easy uncomplicated process to download the software and run the calibration. I found out that my monitor was not very far off, but now I KNOW that my prints are going to look like they do on the monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little device! Compared to the before and after, my screen was super messed up. I have two different monitors: one 99% srgb and another old gaming monitor. The 99% srgb one did not have a big impact, but the old gaming monitor had a huge difference. The before and after of the old gaming monitor had a green tint to everything (on rgb mode).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This product worked exactly as advertised. It was extremely easy to set up and it did a great job. My prints immediately were much better especially in the dark areas as more detail was revealed in the print. The colors also matched the colors on the screen. I recommend this really highly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results first time Installed it and ran it on 4 computers.? Now have 4 computers that have displays that were the same. Now I can edit photos on any of my computers and know that they will all look the same on all my computers. I was not using my laptop to edit photos as it was giving me overblown colors when viewed on my desktop or when viewed online with other peoples screens. Now I can use it...

    Is screen brightness figured in to the calibration?
    Asked by: Diane L.
    Screen brightness is figured in to the calibration, but there are no brightness/contrast adjustments in the Spyder5EXPRESS software. This is (in my opinion) by design on the Express model, and not necessarily a bad thing. Be careful not to confuse brightness with color balance. I use the Spyder5EXPRESS to ensure there are no color casts across my different displays. The Spyder5EXPRESS does this incredibly well, easy to use, and without the advanced features that could create more color issues than I was resolving in the first place (if not done exactly right). So yes, one display could technically be brighter than another, but they are both color balanced perfectly. In a real world scenario when I open a test image side-by-side on both my MacBook and iMac after calibrating both displays, the colors, skin tones, etc, all match perfectly. If you're more advanced go for the better models. Same sensor with more features and control. I also like datacolor because they keep their software up to date. Good luck.

    i have dual monitors (same model) hook up for my desktop. am I able to have both monitors calibrated with the express spyder package?
    Asked by: Joseph MINH L.
    It depends. I have 3 monitors for my mac mini, 2 of them could be calibrated. Usually HDMI, VGA, DVI or display port work with Spyder. USB connection with displaylink does not work.

    My laptop has integrated graphics card as opposed to a dedicated card. Will it still work for me?
    Asked by: William
    simple to use - and if anything computer-wise is gonna act up, it would be on me. But it pretty much runs itself. For me it indicated my new monitor was perfectly set.
