I see that there are so many mixed results here. I would love to see someone who has access with a more known accurate colorimeter than the Spyder do a real in-depth comparison.
I used a Spyder2 probe with Calman on my Sony KDFE50A10 (last year's Grand Wega 5) to calibrate the grayscale.
My goal was to get a good B&W picture with no color tint.
I was very pleased with the results.
BTW, I spent 13 hours that day (my first time).
Of course, the day after I spent $100 on Calman, I stumbled across this thread for free calibration software.
I would have given HCFR a shot first, then maybe spent the money on Calman if my results with HCFR were bad.
Anyway, I'm quite happy with both the Spyder2 and with Calman.
