Best for doing what exactly and for what product? If you've got a dedicated "smart monitor" like an NEC SpectraView, its their software and supported devices that's key. OPTIX is all gone, arguably the best colorimeter. EyeOne Display-2 is widely supported. Gets the job done.

I think Integrated Color still has a supply of Monaco Optix pucks for sale bundled with ColorEyes.

As for the best , it's as Andrew states> if you have a high gamut monitor you'll need a colorimeter with filtration for those colorants.

I just did a calibration with an i1D2 and i1 Pro on an HP Dream Color 24" >

The i1 Pro worked out better, because the i1D2 doesn't have the filtration adapted to this highly colorful monitor.

I will receive the OEM APS which includes a modified i1D2. No doubt it will be better, but I'll report back when I can with the differences.

I use the Spyder 3 colorimater with my Eizo CG241W; it has color filters optimized to accomodate large-gamut displays. The software that comes with it sucks, it doesn't support hardware LUT's at all. But I'm using the colorimeter with EIZO's software.

I've done comparison profiles with the Spyder 3 and my i1 Pro spectro, the profile created with the Spyder 3 has a larger gamut (and better grayscale tracking in the shadows and 3/4 tones, too).

Optix/DTP-94 is not all gone. Andrew has less than the best info here. Since we are actually buying them and can continue to buy them and are being told by XRite that we can continue to buy them, we might actually know something he does not. That being said the 94 is not the best device for wide gamut monitors. In that case the spyder3 wins. For standard monitors the 94 is still the best option. As for "Smart Monitors" there are several that provide the option of their own solution and several third party solutions, Eizo, Samsung and Lacie just to name few. They provide varying levels of control, bit depth and internal lut fuctionality. Most support several instruments.

I tried to download ColoreyesDisplay from Integrated Color. Apparently, I've used the wrong process: I "purchased" the demo item; only to have them say they'll ship it to me? My total was $0.00. What gives?

You received a standard form from the online store after "purchase" with a download link, in your browser and you should have two additional emails with the same.

I have the Optix/DTP-94 and the Monaco Pro but have just bought the HP LP2475w, a wide gamut monitor.  Should I get the Spyder3 to calibrate this monitor or just try to get results with the 94?  Tempted just to get the Spyder3 as I dont want to spend ages getting it right!
