It's a given that you should calibrate your display. Without it, you have no real idea of how accurate your color is, and what others will see online, or what you'll see when you print. The real question is what product to use. You can spend anywhere from about $100 to $1,500 for the hardware needed to calibrate. If all you need is monitor calibration (you don't need to create printer profiles), you can rule out the high end. If your needs are basic, the Spyder4Express is an excellent choice. For those that want more control, the Spyder4Elite is an excellent option that will give you everything you need to the best possible color fidelity. It's hard to find fault with the Spyder4Elite. The advanced features take a bit of exploring to fully understand, but if you're willing to read through the online help, which is excellent, you can learn enough to impress any of your photography friends.
