Years ago I had a Spyder monitor calibrator, though it's long gone at this point. As I'm getting into more critical photo editing I'd like to pickup another calibrator that won't break the bank - nothing more than $150, below if possible. I have dual LED displays. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Spyder 4 pro since you already are familiar with Spyder although it is just a smidge over your $150 budget (by Amazon's pricing right now).
Avoid the Express because it only does one monitor and you have 2.

BTW, like your work.

I agree that the Spyder 4 Pro is the one to use.

Is the Spyder 4 Elite worth the extra expense?

Thank you for the compliment. I found the older Spyder unit pretty easy to use and since I do have the dual monitors I'll definitely take a look at the Pro. Thanks!
