spyder

hi i ve been considering a spyder for monitor calibration but have recently read a review in photoplus that you need to download an activation key does this prevent you using the spyder on more than one pc as i use two in different locations

Re: spyder

I have a Spyder Pro and you enter the license key only the once at first set-up. As soon as it auto-updates you download the latest software and I don't recall having to enter a license key again.

I now use it to calibrate my MacBook Pro, My Wife's MacBook Air, My Son's MacBook and my Daughter's iMac.

I think once you enter the key it registers the device to you but not to a computer.

Hope this helps.

Re: spyder

The latest downloads require an activation key which is free. Probably just another way of snaffing your email address.

If you buy it brand new it should come with the latest version of software.

The latest version includes better brightness and contrast settings, this gives better accuracy.

If you want to calibrate more than one monitor there's no problems either.

If your like me and run a dual monitor system I'm not sure whether the elite version does dual monitors but the pro version that I have certainly does.

Re: spyder

I have the Spyder Express which will only do a single monitor, however I can confirm that it is installed on pretty much every PC in the house (Windows and Mac) and the same activation key works for all. I recently upgraded to the latest version of the software and it continued to accept my original activation key.

Re: spyder

I'm using the spyder of our photoclub at the moment which has been used by different people on different pc's. Not a problem whatsoever and didn't even have to register it with my personal details.
