    Calibration device recommendation.

    I have a Dell U2713HM monitor and I'm just wondering if anyone has any success or otherwise stories matching a good calibration devise to it?

    Thinking of getting a calibration device soon.

    Spyder and ColorMunki seem to be the popular models stocked locally.

    I use a ColorMunki on a similar screen and it works fine.

    Definitely one I'm considering.
    Bit pricey, bit it is a printer calibation solution as well in the same unit.

    By similar do you mean another Dell from the UltraSharp or IPS range or another brand with the same panel.

    The recommended calibration device from Dell is the X-Rite i1, which I use on my Dell P2715Q Ultra HD screen. Works a treat.

    The screen is a U2715H and the colour Munki is a "Display", so no printer calibration.

    I use a Spyder 4 with my Dell 2410 (and others). It works fine.
