Good question. The marketing write up would suggest so. But of course that would be expected. There is nothing tangible I can see in terms of improvement. I am slightly annoyed as I purchased a Spyder3 Pro only 4 weeks ago! Peter
At the end of the ordering process, at check-out, simply type in your discount code: 20SPYDER2012 That way, we offer you a 20% off.
This was in reply to my query about whether any discount was available for buying Spyder 4 to replace Spyder 3 Elite. But I am waiting to discover how substantial the improvement is before I commit myself- I am quite happy with Spyder 3 Elite at present.
To obtain a 40 or 50 euros rebate on the new version, I quote "All you have to do, is to send us your cut off USB plug connector (with the serial number sticker)...".
What on Earth are they thinking? I find it quite shocking to encourage customers to deliberately destroy perfectly functional equipment to obtain a modest rebate.
Anyone interested by datacolor's offer should instead consider to sell the used meter at 50 euros second-hand. This will make the second hand buyer very happy and show respect for Earth's limited resources...

Hi JRP. Yeah, I saw those numbers. But what I was really wondering was, if I calibrated my Dell U2711 with my Spyder3 Pro, and then immediately followed that with a calibration with the new Spyder 4 Pro, would it look significantly different/better/more accurate (to the extent that's discernible)?
