Summary: Can't be beat at this price point!!!
Comment: This is the third color calibration system I have used. It's really great but has benefits and limitations that I will outline below:

Generally, until now, being able to calibrate your monitor AND your prints has been impossible without spending $1000 or more. Of course, if you are a high end production photographer or someone who requires perfect calibration for pre-press, then this is not the tool for you.

This is a great tool for an advanced amateur who is satisfied with really decent monitor to print accuracy, but not absolutely perfect results. It gets you about 90% there. I use it to give my printer an advance look at what I think my digital files are capable of, as a guide to creating a final print. I also use it for all the home printing so that I don't waste paper. It's saved a bundle of $$ so far not to have to print twice!

I won't go into all the nitty gritty. The software is fairly intuitive, especially compared with the higher end products. It's a quick process - about 30 minutes from start to finish to set it up if your printer is already installed.

I found it to be a little less accurate with Black and White printing than color.

The best part is that with LCD screens you only have to calibrate once and it lasts as long as you have the printer. Find a friend who also wants to calibrate and share the cost.

You'll be pleased to finally be able to hit the print button and get what you expect from you printer!!! Good luck!

Summary: Buyer beware - obnoxious licensing restrictions
Comment: Long install (Java and .NET required), requires activation, cannot install on more than three computers. If you need to calibrate more than three monitors, look elsewhere.

Summary: ColorMunki Setback
Comment: Product works well, but the ability to only use it on three computers without paying additional fees is distastefull on the part of the manufacturer.... it is not like other monitor products that you can use on as many computers as you want. I believe the computer has to be on line in order to install it on the computer, so disconnect and take your computer to an internet connection...not a fun thing when it is a desktop.

Summary: ColorMunki Photo
Comment: Tried calibrating 4 times with same results...poor. Have used Spyder2 in the past with no problems but was hoping this would help me with print too at a reasonable price...but not to be. 2 rating is because it is very easy to use and a nice design but the bottom line is the calibration was way off so ease didn't much matter.
