How do the spyders rate?

Are the 1k calibrators worth the additional costs for theater use??

They just came out with a HDTV version. The others were for PC monitors AFAIK.
If you are talking about Signal Generators I use the B7K 1253;

Unfortunately it doesn't have DVI/HDMI out, but at less than half the price of the Accupel I feel it's fine. Once the component inputs are calibrated I can use that as a reference for the digital inputs. It's not exact, but close enough. These aren't broadcast monitors we have here. ;)
Both are American made. :)
