Color Calibration Systems - Opinions?

I am aware of three major brands of color calibrators for monitors:
Spyder2Pro (...actually, the whole Spyder family)
LaCie Blue Eye Pro
I presently have the Spyder2Pro, but since I have just purchased a LaCie 324 monitor, I was considering getting the LaCie Blue Eye Pro as well. However, it is over $300.00. The others are quite a bit less.
Does anyone have any experience with these three and could offer relative pointers as to which one is better and why? Is the LaCie really worth the extra asking price?My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade

I have used the lacie and the spyder pro2 under proffesional photographic conditions and to be honest you will struggle to see any difference, the majority of people I know and work with use the spyder (including me).

I also use the Spyder. I wouldn't get the Huey. That sensor is so small. It also seems like it would also let in a lot of ambient light.
The Spyder3 has a larger sensor than the previous model and it's faster. At $300, I can't justify the LaCie.
Your Spyder2 isn't broken, is it? How does the addage go Mac57?
