On some Windows7 versions / language combinations, there may be a SpyderX driver problem. With the SpyderX generation we have changed the USB driver archtiecture to a Microsoft universal driver (according on the recommendation of Microsoft). On these US...
Either version of SpyderX will include the same, newly-developed hardware. There are a number of software differences. The most important includes the Expert Console, which lets you take control, and drive the software any way you chose, and the nearly in...
If you work in a totally controlled space, with no variation of the lighting (which is recommended) then there is no need to try these features. However, many people must work in spaces with windows, and varying lighting, and for them, these functions are...

The changes in measured values near black tend to move by consistent amounts. Using xyY, for example, the x and y values define the color; and the color of black is not visible, so until the brightness (Cap Y) rises a bit, those numbers don’t have much me...
SpyderX measures much more effectively in the darks than previous Spyders. At white, the screen will vary a bit, so the Cap Y (screen brightness) value will move tiny amounts between measurements. But at black, the screen is much more consistent, and so t...
