I am talking about stuff like Spyder2 and etc. Does it really make your screen more real to life colours. Or you will not really notice the difference.

Please comment.

Depends on how far 'off' your screen is for me I noticed the pictures are all much warmer and it more or less close to my lab prints when I do soft-proofing.

it is not supposed to make your screen more real to life...it is to make your screen behave predictably...so that a picture on your screen will look the same as if it is seen on another screen that has been similarly treated...:)

I am not sure about soft proofing on photos(RGB).

I have a spyderPro (version1) for graphic print work (CMYK). So I calibate my PC and Mac CRT to try to match close to my casting proof . Accurate wise range from 85-90% after calibration... Its also depend largely on lighting conditions as it will affect how you see things on screen (eg, in the day ambient light or at night flourcent light)
