Screen and Printer
I found a big difference after I bought my spyder, not so much in terms of the colours but more in the brightness levels.
They also both use different colors to make the image.
Your monitor uses Red, Green and Blue. White being all three colors of light. Black being the absence of light.
Your printer uses Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. White being the absence of ink. Black being a dark black ink, or a mixture of all four.
While they can come close to reproducing each other, it's always going to be a little different.
Your four color CMYK printer isn't going to be capable of printing professional quality prints. and honestly my photo lab is really cost effective. Just have to wait for the mail.
I've known and used this guy for a while.
How does it do it? It does a calibration of your screen, and then you print out a test sheet. You then "scan" with the munki the printed sheet. It will take those readings and compare it to your screen readings and match them as closely as possible. If you do a lot of printing at home I believe it would be worth the money.
