To the pros out there, I was informed recently that the Spyder 3 Pro is not accurate with LED monitors. I was quite dissappointed when I heard this and was rest assured by a Data color rep that it was totally fine with LED monitors. Now on another forum, I was told that it is not accurate at all. Here an expert is suggesting:
I asked Kal the guru at CurtPalme and got this info back...
Yes, the Spyder3 will have accuracy issues with any LED backlit monitor (it does not matter if it is a edgelit, backlit or backlit RGB).
The least expensive meters that can and do work correctly with LED displays are the DTP-94, Chroma 5 and ColorMunki that has been specially backlit LED calibrated for use with CalMAN (see X-Rite DTP94 (Monaco Optix) Colorimeter with CalMAN ). The EyeOne Pro is also good choice for only a little more if you wish to remain somewhat future proof and ensure accuracy when calibrating LED backlit displays.
So is it true that it has accuracy issues with LED Monitors. What would you guys recommend getting. I don't know who to believe.
