Definitely get the Spyder5. I have it and use it as the bulb ages. The Autocal is simple to use. You can also do color calibration with the Spyder and autocal. However, not all Spyders do color well (some 5s are better than other so its hit and miss). I also have an i1 Display Pro and Calman as a second check and I don't need to adjust after Auocal.
