Iron Creek you say vastly improved??.. you mind commenting further as I have the same Eye-One display 2 and was wondering why you sold it?
You mind stating what you are calibrating and on what computer etc...
Thank you very much...:+}
I recently switch my operating system from Windows XP Pro 64 to Vista Ultimate 64 bit. My studio computer is a Dell Precision 690 w/8 GB RAM. My two main monitors are both 24” Dells and I now have the new Cintiq 12WX. Enough of the background…
I was having problems with the Eye-One running in 64bit even though the said it would. I had used a Spyder prior to making the move to 64bit and liked it. I decided to upgrade my calibration tool to the new Spyder 3 taking delivery in January. Right out of the box I found that it was one of the easiest installs that I’ve done since going 64bit. Not sure if it was because I’m now running Vista or if all the planets were just in proper alignment that day. I also found that the calibration of all three screens was straight forth and easy. I set the reminder to a month a waited to what happened when it was time to check calibration. When the time came it was very easy. I placed the puck on the screen it read the current screen settings and would then tell me if I needed to recalibrate. Of the three screens I only had to recalibrate the Cintiq. The other nifty thing was that I kept the calibration puck plugged in and on its stand reading the light in my workspace.
My personal feelings after having the Spyder 3 for close to 60 days is that it is a very good (I’ll stick with vast) improvement over the other calibration tools that I’ve used in the past. Yes it was expensive but I do not regret the purchase.
Hope this helps. BTW how’s your P30 doing?
