Anyone use this product? Looking to save up money for a new Mac Pro at the moment so needing an affordable solution for a properly calibrated monitor. This is only a temporary situation. Thanks in advance.

I haven't used the Colormunki, but I've been using the Datacolor Spyder3Pro for several years and it works great. I've calibrated my 24" Cinema Display, 24" ASUS ProArt display, and MacBook Pro display with it and the colors are very accurate across all of them. The Spyder5Pro is the current version and it looks to be around the same price range that you are looking for.

I use ColorMunki Photo on my Windows PC and various Macs. It works fine. There was a bug exclusive to the 2015 retina iMac 27 if you upgraded from an old version of ColorMunki software. In this case the color calibration was visually way off. It was supposedly because of the new LED illumination used by the 2015 retina screen, combined with some mis-handled old ColorMunki files during the upgrade. New installs should not have that problem. If anyone encounters this, contact X-Rite technical support.

If you don't need printer matching, the ColorMunki Display version is cheaper and does the same thing as ColorMunki Photo.

The ideal solution is having a high-end hardware-calibrated monitor, but color profiling tools From DataColor and X-Rite are affordable and a big improvement over nothing.
