Monitor calibration question

What's a good way to calibrate my monitor? I was looking at the Spyder 4 system but it's a bit pricey and has 3 versions. Are there cheaper alternatives?  It's mostly for photographic work.

Re: Monitor calibration question

What monitor do you have?  Brand and model please.

Do you plan on going to dual monitors side by side with both calibrated?

Do you shoot from camera with JPEG's saved in AdobeRGB color space or use a RAW file and work in Photoshop or Lightroom with their AdobeRGB and ProPhotoRGB working color spaces?

Do you print at home on a high end multi-ink wide gamut printer?

If you are just looking at display calibration, then I would look at ColorMunki Display. If you are looking to calibrate displays, printers and other devices, then perhaps ColorMunki Photo.

And it is going to stay that way all by itself?
