Follow up: The display looks fine, BUT I have not been able to use SpectraView II that I purchased as a separate download from NEC. Trying to connect it with my existing X-rite i One2 calibrator and my new Mac Pro (quad core, 10.5.
, I get an error message when I launch SpectraView "Unable to communicate with monitor.." I've spent a lot of time on the phone with NEC support, no solution yet. We will probably have to do an exchange.
They also told me thy do NOT replace backlight tubes in refurbs unless they were causing a problem. Mine has 4400 hours on it, seems like a lot but they said they are rated at around 50k hours.
THe monitor looks great, I hope we can get this figured out so I can use it.
In how far "refurbished"? Do you happen to know if it has new backlight?
