I’m just an hobbyist, trying to get my 32″ 4k LG monitor (VA panel) slightly better calibrated to edit pictures and videos. I read the forums, and the universal recommendation is to buy the ColorMunki Display, but at ~$180 is beyond what would make sense for me and a non professional use.
I found a few mentions of the DTP94 being a still capable device and one that uses glass filters (i.e. less likely to degrade over time), and there are quite a few used DTP94 that can be found for ~$30, a price point I could easily justify. And, yes, I know I would have to find a white LED color correction matrix to download, but that seems available. I also might be able to rent/borrow a better device, and once I calibrate the monitor with the better device use that as a starting point to get a consistent calibration with the DTP94
Would I be wasting time and money, or would even an obsolete device like the DTP94 help me achieve better calibration (and consistency over time)?
