"On a press approval, reading proofs or checking press sheets I reach for my color viewer constantly. A loop will not cut it for me anymore."
Purchased my Color viewer 4 years ago and can contest that this is a low maintenance device with superb dot and color viewing. I have to remind myself to plug it in every now and then, have gone months without charging.

"I would recommend the BetaColor Viewer 3 to anyone who is serious about print and color quality.
See what you have been missing!"
