RE: OT (a little) - Monitor calibration

Hi Michael,

Since no one has responded to your question I thought I might offer this
suggestion for monitor calibration; the x-rite Eye-One Display 2 Colorimeter
Monitor Profiler.

I've been very pleased with my x-rite colorimeter. The x-rite is probably
more than you wanted to spend but it is a first rate product.

Not altogether off-topic, I hope.

I've got my spanking brand new Epson 3800 hooked up, and my printed copy of
spread across the kitchen table, half-digested. One more thing I've been
worrying about 
is the calibration of my monitor. I've had my eye on Spyder2 for some time,
discovered today that there's a Spyder3. One review speaks glowingly of it
for having 
such a sexy storage cradle. Hmmm.

So is there anyone who can say from experience whether I'm better off going
with the 
newer one, or can save the $100 difference and settle instead for S2? All
reviews I've 
been able to locate on S3 treat it separately without even bothering to
mention its 
predecessor, much less comparing them. And I really don't get much of a rise
out of 
sexy cradles.
