Two Monitors Calibrate for one.


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a Dell U2212HM monitor and a LG 22MP56HQ monitor. Which of these is better and that I should calibrate with my Spyder Calibrator? I originally thought the Dell wasn't IPS but it is. It was donated to me so I assumed it was just OK to use.

Honestly, calibrate both and see which behaves better.  It's likely that one will give you a closer print match than the other.

Do you have both of the plugged in to your computer?  Once you know which one calibrates better, that can be your editing screen, and the other one can be for your folder and panels and stuff.

Thank you. I will calibrate both... I only have the Spyder Pro 4 so there is that limitation. I only see that the LG may respond faster than the Dell but my eyes may not notice that. All else seems the same.

The "Spyder Elite" series has a better time with dual displays, as the Elite Software is meant for it. The calibrator itself is the same between a "Pro" and an "Elite," it's just the software has more features. It used to be that you could upgrade a Pro to an Elite by purchasing the $99 or so upgrade. Since the Spyder4 Series has been discontinued, I'm not sure if it's still an option. She may have to call Datacolor and see if the upgrade is still available.
