I must admit that I know nuts about monitor calibration. Quite confused after reading some of the postings here too, hope someone can help to enlighten me..
If I just wish to ensure that:
1) the colour I view on the monitor is fairly accurate,
2) fairly consistent among photo-editing software and other software like acd see,
3) minimise colour differences when send to shops or labs for printing after editing them in pc
4) more or less close match with my printer output when I occasionally print via my home printer
Should I get a hardware calibrator, or just some clicks and adjustments will do?
If a hw calibrator is recommended, what shd I get for my purpose?
Saw a lot of diff names like spyder, xrite, huey, eye-one etc.. quite lost
Asked Cathay today they mentioned something like $365 for a spyder 2..
