I'm a freelance editor, and I've finally got all of the components of my home editing system up and running.  My question is this:  how often do people calibrate their monitors?  I don't want to spend a lot of money on a tool that I will hardly ever use.  Most of my work is currently web content.  Any recommendations?

Hey Marcus,

 

If most of your work is for the web you really don't need to worry too much about calibration. Are you using an external broadcast monitor, or just your computers LCD?

I'm mostly using my MacBook Pro and 24″ LED backlit display.

Cool,

 

I would get a Spyder3 from DataColor, it's a USB color probe that works great with OS X.
