Thanks so much. I've been having much difficulty with my Spyder4Pro...got a replacement and it still didn't work. Didn't know if it's my old monitor or the Spyder4. This makes it much better...although my Spyder4Pro is NOT measuring ambient light before doing the calibration...so I'm not sure I have Pro. Me thinks Datacolor needs to work out some more bugs.... but this makes it useable, so thanks :-)
