I have no advice on calibrating or comparison. However, I am really enjoying how after stating specifically that you were not interested in actual model recommendations, you immediately received 4 more model reviews.

Murph, it's not a matter of telling him what he wants to hear, it's a matter of telling him what we want to tell him!

Seriously, I saw that he wasn't looking for model recommendations, I mentioned it only because it may / may not be helpful to anyone else too. I didn't even recommend the models I use, since they're no longer available (I assume), though I DO happen to like them.

I have one.
It always had this slight yellow tinge i've never liked.
Haven't done any calibrating with it. Was actually hoping to hold off long enough on buying LCD until something more interesting came out; like OLED.
But dammit, my CRT Viewsonic died.
I had no choice.

Holy crap that's expensive.
But you have to love the simplicity of their advertising argument:
The Swiss-engineered ColorMunki spectrophotometer is a portable all-in-one device .... it even has a Built-in ... a "Swiss Army Knife" of color management.

The only calibrator I've used was the Pantone el-cheapo model, whatever that was. It was... ok.
