Sure, the DisplayMate USB won't do your standalone display much good so long as it remains disconnected from a PC, but for HTPC owners the world over, calibrating your display just got a whole lot simpler. The aforementioned USB stick simply plugs into one's PC, launches automatically (and without storing any data on the host computer) and provides users with a smorgasbord of "test patterns and expert advice" for setting up your projector, monitor or HDTV. More specifically, you can expect a whole slew of test patterns and tips, and considering that it runs at the true native resolution of your display, there's no worrying over compatibility. Intrigued? It's available now in a trio of flavors, and can secured for $79, $99 or $495, depending on model.
