    I have recently purchased a IPS monitor replacing an LCD monitor. I used to calibrate the LCD using "Spyder 3 Express". There is no IPS option when first setting up the Spyder only CRT or LCD. Do I need to replace the Spyder 3 Express with newer calibration software that has IPS as an option ? . My instinct tells me that while IPS is a different manufacturing process from LCD that is still the option to select and ther is no need to purchse new software. One last point the IPS screen is way too bright for post processing images is there an optimum level I should aim for in everyday room lighting conditions. Thanks in advance

    it works fine as it is, I use the same device on my Hazro 27inch ips.
    As for brightness my screen is running in eco mode, brightness 25% contrast 90%. But each will vary.

    Use LCD Screen setting.
    An IPS monitor is still a LCD screen. IPS simply refers to the manufacturing process and differences in the internal components of the monitor.

    That's really the purpose of a decent greyscale test - so you can adjust screen brightness in accordance with ambient light (ideally it's good to control ambient light - apart from anything else you'll kill your monitor faster if you run it at higher luminance levels).
