We reviewed the Spyder4Elite in January 2012, concluding, "We used the Spyder4 to calibrate an LCD laptop screen and an iPad. And we recalibrated them, too. We used the ambient monitor to adjust the laptop screen throughout the day. No issues. Which is precisely the reason you calibrate your screens."
