I would recommend Eye-one display 2 from X-rite, but be careful with 64-bit drivers.

Technical Details

* Includes emission-only colorimeter with ambient measurement capabilities
* Professional monitor-calibration tool with advanced controls
* Achieve accurate color on all displays including LCDs, CRTs, and laptops
* Optimize gray balance for more neutral and better-defined grays
* Check ambient light to determine optimal room lighting for color-critical work

It basically depends on how much you are willing to spend.
I am using Spyder 3 Express, it seem to be doing the job fine.

I second taraboom. Rightly pointed out that it depends on how much you want to spend. such questions could be answered more effectively if you specify the budget as well. I have been using Eye-one display and the performance is better than average. although there are other players also on the market but i have found Eye-one display to be slightly better than the rest of them. But again this is my personal opinion. You must hear it out from people using other products as well.

Monitors should be carefully calibrated. It doesn't matter who you are, if you care about your images, you need to care about the condition of your monitor(s). The good news is, monitor calibration is fairly easy, and even a modest investment can pay off big in image quality.
