    I need a good one for pp. Please suggest one for a hobbyist and a professional. I might get the best one if affordable. Also, do these things calibrate for normal brightness, contrast, exposure, etc? Thanks.

    I use the Spyder 3 Pro. Works great.

    I think he's asking for specifics there smart alek. He's probably already done a Google search and found himself lost in the results.

    Spyder is the best IMO.

    I'm real partial to X-Rite's products. I use the i1 Display 2, myself.
    X-Rite - i1Display 2 Colorimeter Monitor Profile - EODIS2 - B&H

    I don't do my own printing so I don't need a spectrophotometer to profile both monitors and printes/scanners, like X-Rite's ColorMunki:

    Actually, you are not calibrating a monitor, you are profiling a monitor.

    How well that profiling can be done depends on the display technology your monitor uses, be it TN (Twisted Nematic), IPS (In-Plane Switching), or PVA (Patterned Vertical alignment), and the range of adjustments your particular monitor allows.
