    Hi, I have change my mind and will be gettin the new iMac 27".
    Need to calibrate the iMac monitor.
    Thinking of colormunki or the Spyder pro. I need to calibrate my printers too along with my tv.
    Any tips on these products?
    Thank you
    Scott

    I owned the Spyder 4. I used it a few times and didn't have any problems with it. It prompts you ever so often to recalibrate. After calibrating, I found that AdobesRGB was 95% as accurate as the calibrated monitor, so I ended up selling it.

    thanks.
    i am leanng towards the munki as it sounds like a monkey.
    The last bit is a joke but yes, im leaning towards the colormunki but not sure if it can calibrate my sony tv.
    i will hook up the new iMac to the sony tv hence it will need to be calibrated too.

    Don't use the Spyder on an iMac, it sucks. The X-Rite i1Display Pro is a better choice.

    My old Spyder3 works just fine on my HP monitor connected to my rMBP. I can't think of any reason why it will not work on the old or new iMac screens.
