So with my KRudd Birthday Bonus (well, it's my birthday in a month...close enough to a bday pressie) I'm looking at getting something for monitor calbration.
Either the Spyder2Express, or the X-Rite Eye 1
Vanbar has the former for $165, and the latter for $275 (well, it's the Eye One LT, but it has a free upgrade to the Eye One 2 software)
Or there's also the Spyder 2 suite inc PrintFix plus - http://www.vanbar.com.au/catalogue/r...OFTWARE&Item3= for $275
Of course, if I'm willing to spend that much, than the Spyder 3 pro also has to be an option...
Now, I don't really print at home much - it's just cheaper to print at a minilab (so on that note, the printfix software may not be overly beneficial....).
I don't print a lot of photos - and at this stage it's just for personal use (though I will be printing a few more to hang around the apartment), but I don't want to get the cheapest one and find it's too limiting...
