I've got the Spyder II and the DTP-94 and they often come up with pretty

colorimeter and why?

I've not actually played with a Spyder II, although I've read some
reviews that were quite favourable as to its quality and accuracy
when compared to other instruments.

On the other hand, I've had feedback from people who have looked
into the DTP-94 in some detail, and they suggest that it is an
extremely well built, long term stable device. So if I had to choose
I would go for the DTP-94, although I can't point to any objective
reason to do so.

I do have a Spyder II and am quite happy with it (although it's only working under Win32). But I read on some forums that it will not be able to capture the full gamut of my hopefully soon ariving NEC2690WUXi (>92% AdobeRGB).

In some home cinema forums I read that the devices' quality varies. But Colorvision will replace the devices if you can prove that the measured values are inaccurate (as I read there).

If I buy another affordable monitor colorimeter it'll probably be a Gretag i1 Display (or X-Rite i1 Display now) since it's widely supported and I heard no complaints from anyone so far.
