    my printer is canon ip4200.

    Cheerz....
    If you wish to have both go get the ColorVision Spyder2suite or Spyder2PRO. Both products include a printer profiling software called PrintFIX PLUS which you can use to adjust your printer settings with.

    The GretagMacbeth options are much more dearer so dont look that way if you're not into serious high profile printing.

    Spyder Pro 2: $535, Eye One Display 2: $470 (previously). Quoted from CP. Apparently, CP dun have Eye-1. Where can I find?

    Is Monaco Optix XR Pro so powerful?

    Since X-Rite bought over GretagMacbeth, maybe should contact the local X-Rite office and ask them where we can find & buy Eye-One products.

    Its so powerful that X-Rite have now dropped the product from its line-up and replaced it with the Eye-One Display2. Try and get it before it goes out of stock.

    I've tried the non-PRO version and I already find it excellent. The PRO version will no doubt be of higher quality.

    Yes indeed, The Monaco Optix XR Pro has a very user friendly, yet versatile software interface. The color puck is of better quality and is very accurate. Unfortunately, X-rite no longer interested in Monaco products.Thus even if you can get one, you will not get the support.

    The Monaco Optix XR Pro costs around $560 with GST. And that is if you can get it. As I said before, it was backordered about 2-3 weeks ago.

    Gretag Macbeth/Pantone/X-rite is one big happy family. Currently, there are only two players in the world of color calibration devices: them and Datacolor.

    Yes its the Monaco OPTIX PRO but I doubt they will sell theirs with warranty cause X-Rite have already withdrawn the product.

    Yeap...I second to this. That's also the reason why I bought the Eye-One Display 2 instead. These devices are electronics, anything can happen internally.

    Actually I just realised my monitor Viewsonic VA902b has a sRGB setting, quite useful if u dont have a colour calibrator.

    ah good, so by adjusting the sRGB setting we can get a well profiled/calibrated monitor.
