ExpertReviews.co.uk: Datacolor Spyder 4 Express Review

A colorimeter is a device that’s used to test the output of a monitor so you can tune it for the best colour and contrast settings (see FAQ). The Datacolor Spyder4Express is a colorimeter with colour calibration software, and the least expensive package in Datacolor’s Spyder line.
A quick-start guide in the box guides you through the initial setup – you have to install the drivers and software before attaching the USB device. Once the software is set up, you’re prompted to place the device on the screen, which is achieved by hanging it over the top edge of the display, using the attached counter-balance to keep it in position – the counter-balance can be moved up and down the USB cable, so you can adjust it accordingly.
