Edit: Here is a list of differences between the software: https://www.datacolor.com/photograph...tware-upgrade/
but even their best software is worse than argyll?

I have no clue, I don't want to spend $99.99 to find out when the open source software is amazing.

I'll try finding a "free" version of that premium software.

Datacolor priced the Spyder5 way too high at release. While the X-Rite was more accurate, quicker and feature rich. Some major feature benefits include automatic hardware adjustment and support for calibrating a monitor's hardware LUT. I bought the Spyder5 Pro for $80 and use DisplayCal since their Pro software isn't useful to me. It's time consuming to calibrate with the Spyder5 especially since I have to manually change the settings in the OSD but I don't mind for the $70 saved if I waited for the i1display to go on sale.

It seems to me that the people at Datacolor are able to read the same articles and design a product that is competitive with the XRite. So, it never made sense to me that there would be a big difference in the accuracy of either device.

The reason people rag on the Spyder5 is because it can't measure very low. Which means on VA-panels/ OLED or IPS/TN calibrated to Low brightness (home use), Spyder provides very inaccurate detection near black, causing dead zones. Basically black artifacts on dark tones.

The reason why Xrite was so much better and Read LOWER , is because it has a big'o lens on the front to focus the light down into the sensor pod.

This new Datacolor seems to have a lens as well, though it's smaller than the lens on the X-rite.

Size of lens shouldn't matter much though, This will for certain provide more than enough accuracy on consumer panels.


Another thing for anyone interested in getting these calibrators , is to keep in mind that NEITHER this new Spyder, Nor the X-rite Display Pro will give you Real Accuracy. It will look better than uncalibrated, but that's about it.

The reason is, Accurate calibrations require both a Spectrometer AND a Colorimeter. the Spyder and x-rite display pro are both colorimeters.

A GOOD accurate spectrometer is used for ~$2000 and new $3000 bottom end.

Photography is expensive. Oh, the i1dp spectrometer is ****. don't buy it.

The xrite was not more accurate, It read a wider range. If the monitor is in the range of the Spyder5, accuracy was equivalent.

Problem is, Well, more and more new monitors began to be out of the spyder5's range. hahahaha
