A monitor calibrator is the secret weapon that ensures that your computer monitor or your laptop screen are showing you the right colors. Edit your images without a calibrated screen, and you could be tweaking tones and correcting color casts completely unnecessarily - and could well mean that your pictures will just look wring when seen by someone else online, or when you print them out. And as screens can change color as they grow older, regular calibration is at the heart of good color management.
For basic monitor calibration, the SpyderX Pro (opens in new tab) is all you need (and more)... it is the latest and improved version of what has been a tried and tested popular model for years.
Datacolor SpyderX Pro was $169.99, now $99.99 (opens in new tab)
