Color Monitor Calibration Software Needed

Can someone please recommend any modestly-priced color monitor calibration software? I've looked at several, but wanted to get just a few more suggestions before buying one.

I am a professional photographer who exclusively uses Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 (I highly recommend)and although Corel has its own monitor calibrator built it, my experience with it has been less than satisfying. I would rather independently have the option of calibrating the monitor separately from my photo editing software anyway.

I maintain three computers, which all run Windows XP, one has a flat screen monitor and the other two are the older TV-style monitors.

Then do you have access to a professional quality printer? If so, trust your eyes to calibrate. Take an outdoors, hi-rez picture of a familiar face or faces in a familiar place on a sunny day. Print it out in your best quality on your best paper. The put monitors in their optimal resolutions (native for LCDs) and eyeball it.
