I still put my money on the DVD/BD essentials discs for the inputs for my disc players and I use the test patterns I saved several years back from HDNet for my DVR.
I could probably get better results from a pro, but since I use an LCD panel in my living room instead of a well controlled home theater room, I'm not willing to get that far into it. My main goal was getting the screen out of torch mode and to give me accurate flesh tones in real world situations. The fact that I got far better than that is gravy.
For what it's worth, I used to have a Spider back in my CRT days for my computer. When I tried one out for the LCD screen I had later, I really didn't find it worked as well or as accurately. Just eyeing it produced more accurate results - but then again, I look at video levels all day at work and I've gotten to the point where I can see minor levels issues before I even look down at the video scope.
