European Multisync PA can be hardware calibrated with Spectraview II software. It can't be unlocked in a simple way (like early x90 series), but there's a chance it won't be necessary.

OK, but I donít think itís supposed to work that way from NEC Europeís point-of-view. Here in Sweden a Multisync PA241W costs USD1715 and the PA241W Spectraview version costs USD2650. I sure hope NEC isnít screwing us for 935 dollars for a piece of paper and a hood!

B&H wants 899USD for Multisync PA241W. An Eizo CG243W costs 2346USD at B&H, about the same as in Sweden and equal to NECís Spectraview version here.

I'm not so sure about that S/SX "hardware calibration" with EasyPIX2

Yup, thatís the way it works now:

Thanks everyone. I got the Eizo CG223W. It was in stock, not the NEC. It's a very nice monitor. I have a calibration question.....
I use the monitor to retouch myh photographic work and to print on a large format Epson printer (11880). I use it also to calibrate artwork that goes to press.

It is recommended to use 6500K with 2.2 Gamma for photo work and 5000K (D50) and a 1.8 Gamma for press work. What should I use? Is one better than the other one when I use a monitor for multiple use? The work that goes to press goes to different printers..... Would a combination of both be a suitable solution? ( ex: 2.2 Gamma and 6000K)

Thanks!

No. In your position I would test two monitor profiles - one to use for the press work and the other for the Epson. By testing, I mean soft-proof each output condition with each monitor profile, make prints and see what will give you the most predictable and accurate result for each purpose. For the press, you can find inkjet papers which come close to simulating certain press papers used for printing photographs. Gamma adjusts tonality, while degrees K is a white-point setting. They aren't trade-offs. You may find 6500K results in prints that are too warm. 5000K may be appropriate for both output conditions. Experiment.
