Dunno what's the current price. Promo price is something like $490 or $590. This one calibrates both LCD and CRT monitors. The CRT only one is only $299.

I suppose (just speculating as I don't own one...urgh!) that once calibrated, you can plug it out unless you wanna decorate your monitor ;p. However the argument is that monitors deteriorate over time thus they need to be calibrated periodically...

It won't. If your monitor is crappy, the Spyder won't help.

Not familiar with the Philips, is that CRT or LCD? I advise against getting the cheap LCDs (those $500+ ones). For that amount of money (just top up a little), you can get a good 17" or even a 19" CRT. After that, use Adobe Gamma. You should be able to get good results from that alone. (I did).

The Philips I mentioned is CRT. Can't afford LCD...and I prefer having larger viewing area. In Johor, monitor brand is limited...thus I plan to get one from Singapore...anyone know where to check the price of various brand CRT monitors?
