X-Rite’s new ColorMunki Smile ($99) is a simple and affordable monitor-calibration solution. The bundled software handles calibration on LED and LCD displays (without requiring users to understand color theory) and can calibrate multiple displays connected to a single Mac or PC. X-Rite says the ColorMunki Smile uses the same technology as its higher-end calibration products, so you can expect high color accuracy without the high price tag.
