For Spyder2 devices:

As we promised earlier you can now download the software from Spyder3Express to use your Spyder2 sensor with your Lion OS X. Please click the below link to download the appropriate software. Spyder3Express supports a single monitor calibration with target of Gamma 2.2 and 6.500 K white point.

Please understand that your Spyder2 sensor is not compatible with Spyder3Pro and Spyder3Elite software because if it's missing ambient light sensor. Please also note that Spyder2 sensors are physically not able to read LED backlight color because of its different spectrum of light. If you need to calibrate a monitor display with LED backlight technology please upgrade to the current 3rd generation of Spyder products.

For original Spyder devices:

As an owner of the original Spyder design, we thank you for your loyalty and confidence in using our first product design for your color management needs. While this first generation of Spyder products has provided years of reliable service, the physical limitations of the design do not make it upgradeable to work with the Mac OS X Lion software.
