Test Suite

The Spyder4Elite software also includes an ‘Advanced Analysis’ option, which allows you to perform six tests – gamut, tone response, brightness and contast, white point at different OSD settings, screen uniformity and colour accuracy – on your display.

I ran through the test suite and again, it was most useful and straightforward. The screen uniformity test was the most demanding, as it required the sensor be placed in nine different sections of the screen, but even so the tests took only around 20 minutes and still provided quite useful results – hopefully I’ll be able to use this for display tests in the future!

Conclusion

All in all, there’s little to complain about with the Spyder4Elite. The calibration tool did its job expertly, coming up with a vastly improved display in fifteen minutes of use. Despite knowing little about colour calibration, I found the instructions easy to understand and I’m pleased with the results.

  • Setup and calibration is very straight-forward
  • The results produced were top notch
  • Little time was required
  • Can be used with a range of displays
  • Software includes display test suite

Cons

  •  TV calibration requires a paid update
