I used to have a Xerox one when I worked for the digital printer in New Zealand.. personal experience is that they are completely rubbish.. but thats just me :)

I am inclined to agree with you, however at the moment we are staring at my mac, boss screen and his cintique. Same thing, totally different!

Cintique and mac are very similar, monitor is miles different!

this is the joys of printed media.. the monitor will never ever depict it properly, no matter what calibrator you have and how good it says it is... I would say instead of getting one of them I would get a decent laser printer (A3 one or something like that) and get loads of paper and proof it on the fly :))

well its expensive thats for sure, the (pantone) eyeone monitor calibrator sells for around £120 quid.

You can get a full on calibration kit from datacolor (spyder studio sr) for about £350

make your own judgement :) I'd say Berry is the one who will tell you if a calibrator is worth the money or not, but personally I would buy atleast a screen calibration device (although I haven't yet)

a pantone calibrator would be worth seeing in action with a pantone book in your hands!

I'll see if the beast weighs in.

Chris, the argument is, your monitor is ****! No it's not...

eye one was bought out by pantone iirc, as it was never originally called a pantone eye one it was grechen or something similar
