EDID Reader for Windows that Works

Chances are if you need to read the EDID information stored in a display you are already frustrated. Usually you only need to see this low level information if something isn't displaying correctly. The last think you want to do is download multiple applications that claim to extract the EDID information only to find they do not work correctly or at all.

So I've done the searching and experimenting for you and if you are on Windows (specifically I was on Windows 7 64bit but this should work on most versions of Windows) I recommend the free Extron EDID Manager that can be found here.
