Great product

The only con, which really isn't a con at all, is that it took me a while to get the cord on the puck staightened out so it would lay flat and hang straight on my LCD display. When the adjustments are complete, it displays a color board and portrait photo, and allows you to switch back and forth between before and after settings so you can see the difference.

A lemon

Unfortunately the product up to now is unworkable. Constant error messages. [...] Instrument not been able to be used for what it has been sold for.Thrown away [$]. Guarantee questionable. Endeavoring to work through issues with X-rite.

Solved the problem of color correction.


Excellent product recommended.


Make your hard work count!


Worked great on my Dell laptop and MacBook pro. Now I can edit images and create much more accurate white balance and my reds aren't so strong.


Good Product; Poor Documentation


Use it for home. Took a while to set up since I have to download the software for Win 7. Once the software is installed it's fairly easy to use. But the instructions are too poor. Have to guess which program to use for what purpose. So far only used Eye-One Match 3 software to calibrate the monitor and haven't had time what the other programs are used for (Eye-One Share, etc)

Win 7 Directions...GO TO WEBSITE FIRST


The software in the carton has little value if you are using Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) You need to go to the X-rite website to download the proper program file. You will not be able to use this file unless you UNINSTALL whatever you loaded from the CD. Don't think you can simply download the WIN 7 drivers, don't ask me how I know this. The CD software other than the main program is optional. The only device that this program and device will calibrate is the monitor, even if the projector, scanner icons and others show up (they are grayed out). Having done everything wrong at least twice, and then following the online tutorials, the gizmo actually seems to work fine. Editing in Lightroom3 and Photoshop CS4 is significantly improved. You can even evaluate your ambient light conditions and (in my case) dial down the luminance to further improve editing. I have gone back into previously edited image files and did them over to see the improvements. FYI, I also use the specific paper profiles for my Epson R1900 and together my prints are now borderline excellent.

easy to use profiler


I always felt that one of my screens had a purple touch, and this product corrected for this. Now the color rendition certainly looks more akin on my different (LCD/LED) monitors than before, but there is still a slight difference between my laptop and a secondary lcd. Still, I now feel much more secure when adjusting my photos.


It's easy and it works


Monitor calibration was easy and my prints are coming out exactly as they look on the monitor. Videos are included to walk you through the process, but it is straightforward and simple.


Great calibrator at a great price!


It's an excellent product and serves my need perfectly!

Easy to use; gets useable profile


Easy to use at the default settings, maybe more difficult if you want to modify monitor beyond defaults. Creates a profile that is surely better than the standard. I get a reasonable approximation on my LCD. My CRT, which runs on the same machine, has distinctively different tones and hue. You can attribute that to the unavoidable difference between the CRT and the LCD, but if the X-Rite profiles are really supposed to standardize the screens, the fact that the screens are nowhere near the same even after they are both calibrated raises some questions about the product's ability to do what it claims.

Poorly documented product


I was able to install the software but it failed to recognize the device. Therefore the product was simply unusable with Windows 7. The documentation is unforgivably inadequate. There is simply nothing helpful in the skimpy documentation. I would NOT buy another product from X-rite unless I saw it demonstrated to me on my system first. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.


Excellent Product


The X-Rite Eye-One Display 2 is an excellent product. Simple to set up for the layman, yet has advanced features for more experienced users. The product does exactly what it is supposed to do. It makes your monitor's color as good as it can be.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Probably a stupid question, but does this work with laptops?
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID R  Disappointed that it did not, at the time support my computer. Ended up buying the Spyder. The seemed confusing as to the updates, etc.
Shopper  works with lion mac os ?
ERNEST R  It does not currently work on OS X Lion, their website says they expect to have an update out sometime in Sept 2011.... Also, their site lists this calibrator as discontinued, even though it's still for sale which is weird. They said if you registered the device they would notify us when the update comes out. You might want to check their site to see if the update is out before you buy.
