The Monitor Spyder is a seven band colorimeter, and as such would be way 
ahead the typical three band ones, but would still need to be tuned 
specificly for LCDs to be optimal for such work. Only a fine band 
spectrophotometer is in the position to do this without such special tuning, 
and those start at well over a thousand US dollars. The software needed for 
this may not yet exist either... one German program claims to be able to do 
so but my testing has not shown that it does anything superior to other 
systems to date. In fact getting managed screen color on LCDs may well take a 
different kind of color controller on video cards.
Its all up in the air at this point, but to put it another way, the Spyder 
will calibrate LCDs as well as anything else seems to at the moment, 
certainly as well as anything that costs less than a good used car... but 
this isn't necessarily claiming much...
