    Datacolor S5P100 Reviews

    Spyder5PRO Display Calibration System is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 695.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is newer better? I bought this Spyder 5 Pro as a replacement for my Spyder 2 Suite I have. I believed it must be better being a newer model. So far I'm not very impressed. It seems that I have less control for color then I did with the 2. I dislike the 5 USB cord as it is very flimsy and I really have to wonder how long it will be before it doesn't work, compared to the very stout USB cable on 2. The 5 does detect ambient light to set the screen brightness at and this wasn't the case with 2, so the effect now is a much lower brightness than I had with 2. Not sure this is better? I will have to do more work before I can state whether this adversely effects what I am doing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It did the job I was tried of my photo prints coming out darker then what I saw on my monitor and the color being off. After a quick search on the web on how to calibrate my monitor, I found Spyder5Pro. Spyder5Pro software was easy to use, all I did was follow the step by step instruction. I was happy to see the first batch of prints I order came back looking as I expected (matching the screen). Also, I had some minor questions which I emailed Datacolor with them and received quick answers back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spyder5PRO Good But Not Great I've used this to calibrate two monitors so far my desktop and my laptop. It worked perfect on my desktop and my prints edited on my desktop are coming out as close to what I'm seeing on my monitor as had hoped. Unfortunately my desktop and laptop monitors aren't even close after calibration. I can't blame this totally on the Spyder5 part of the problem may be the limitation of the laptop monitor but the interface with the laptop isn't great and the results on the laptop were far from great. Bottom line I would definitely recommend this if you calibrating a desktop monitor but would hesitate to recommend it if your using a laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I took the plunge I have a macbook Pro that is only a few years old. I a new to photography and it never would have occurred to me that I need to calibrate my monitor until a fellow photographer mentioned it to me. I tried using the in computer calibration system but I was so paranoid that my colors were off that I purchased this. and boy am I glad! my colors were waaaaay to warm. and as a color photographer thats big deal! I can't think of anything I don't like about it. I wish it could be used on my iPhone. Sometimes i am just shocked by the color difference between the phone and computer. If you shoot in color you need to get this. no questions about it. it is well worth the price to make sure your work is delivered as true as possible.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works once activated To be able to use the product right away you need to be able to access goto.datacolor.com/getspyder5 I had to go to my parents house and use their internet that is faster to upload and put in the new key number. Once you get past that, the product is easy and works as promised. I only gave it 4 stars because 15mbps internet in rural United States is not uncommon. Once you have the product keyed in, you no longer require internet access for future. My prior Spyder Pro 3 worked fine, but I wanted to upgrade and felt it was time. I have received my prints back from the lab and they look like they do on the monitor which is what this is supposed to help with.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite the quality I expected I had an older Spyder calibrator and it was time to update to something new that's compatible with current OS versions. I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with this; the software looks old/outdated (even with an update from Datacolor) and has pretty poor usability. And given that, who knows how well any of the system works? All I can say for now, is that I have two different monitors on the same computer, and after calibrating both of them with the same sensor/software, they're nowhere near alike. For the price I expect a far better combination of hardware/sensor and software. Next time I'll try a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the guesswork out of color grading video I had thought recent 27 iMacs came from the factory with accurate monitors, but I kept finding that color grading video would often yield unexpected results when viewed on nicely adjusted TVs. I also use a Samsung 4K monitor as a second screen, and could never quite get it to look like the iMac display. After using the Spyder5Pro to get the two displays properly calibrated they both look great -- as close to identical as could be expected, with all colors and levels appearing the same on both screens. Color graded video now looks the way I expect when viewed on TV. This was a great purchase that has eliminated the worry and frustration I had been dealing with for a long time. Highly recommended!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very poor product I have received my Spyder5 Express this morning and it did a very, very poor job of calibration my two monitors. The first one I have calibrated, had a yellowish white balance. This is for sure not the pure white as I have before. On my second monitor i'is even worse. Everything on the screen in green like there were a green backlight under the screen. I have try two or three time with the same result. So poor that I have to desactivate Spyder calibration and return back to my NVidia calibration data . A VERY BAD PRODUCT for the price they sell this thing. It is more a toy than a serious gadget and IT DOES NOT WORKED AT ALL.

    question

    I heard a rumor that Spyder5 can't be used with the older Mac CCFL monitors and that I would need to find a Spyder4 calibration system. Is this true?
    Asked by: C
    Newer systems such as the i1 Display Pro or Spyder 5 can cope with CCFL, wide gamut CCFL.

    I saw a review that software must be downloaded from an http site not an https site. Is that true?
    Asked by: kim
    I do not remember specifically that the download site was not a secure site. But I just visited the Datacolor site, and it is accessed via an HTTPS: address. In any case, I have not had any problems since downloading and installing my software last August.
