If you have no such solution, then yes, go for the new product. The software needs work and has a few odd bugs (forget about creating your own patch sets). Otherwise it can produces good calibration if your needs are not severe.

I expect to end up with a high quality calibration and profile. So I guess it is severe.
Can you describe what you mean with severe? Which tweaks / modifications / procedures do you consider as severe and will not be available / working?

Thx!

Then get an NEC SpectraView with their instrument and software and calibrate using a integrated solution.

Sorry Schiminiello, didn't work on the Macbook Pro.  My laptop is a Dell XPS 17, and like the Macbook Pro it's an IPS screen

The MacBook Pro does not use an IPS panel, they all use TN Panels. The Dell XPS 17 (L701x) does not use an IPS panel either, it uses an LG LP173WD1-TLA1 TN film panel. I looked on Dell's website and there is no option for an IPS panel on this model. The only Dell laptop I'm aware of that offers an IPS panel is the M4600 and it's a $500 option. If there is an IPS panel option, it will explicitly say IPS panel in the description. "HD" or "3D" does not = IPS.

Cheers, Joe

Ditto that. If you already have a monitor I would not recommend the i1 Display Pro at this time. I'm pointing people towards the Spyder 3 with Color Eyes Display Pro.

Hi
I am the original poster to this thread. Can anyone give me an answer to my questions? I have macbook pro and haven't had good luck with the I1 Display 2 calibration system. Has anyone tested the new I1 Display Pro calibration device on the market? http://xritephoto.com/ph_product_overview.aspx?id=1454 FOR A MACBOOK PRO? It says it's the "Next generation i1Profiler software for calibrating and profiling all modern display and projector technologies including LED & Wide Gamut LCDs"

Should this work well on my macbook pro? I don't edit on my macbook pro (I edit on a separate monitor) but often need to take my laptop to clients homes and need the color to be correct... so having the calibration on both computer screens match would be key.

CAN ANYONE ADDRESS MY SPECIFIC ISSUE AND QUESTION?

Thanks,
Shannon

I was disappointed with the i1Display system as well but love the new pro device and software (now that it's at 1.1.1 and has lots of new display calibration features). Works great on MacBookPros.

I took the plunge (its not really a plunge, more like small dip) for the i1 Display Pro to calibrate my field macbook pro. It does a fine job with the included software.

What I really want though is NEC to pull their finger out and issue an update to the SpectraView software to make the i1 Display Pro compatible so I can properly calibrate my NEC 2690 WUXI spectra view monitor. The sooner they do this the better. I am keen to see how the i1 display pro performs on a wide gamut monitor compared to my previous Eye One Display 2 (which is ok - but not great on wide gamut).

I know Will from NEC who was instrumental in these monitors engineering reads and posts here occasionally. Will can you shed any light on if/when?

I'm totally confused. I have an NEC monitor, but in my country the NEC puck is not available. Can I use Spectraview with another calibrating device?

Do you have NEC Spectraview, or PA version? There's basICColor display SQUID WG, which - I believe - is equivalent of NEC SVII sensor.

On the other hand new basICColor display 5 aka Spectraview Profiler 5 will also support X-Rite i1display pro, that seems to be much better solution.

I have an PA221 which I want to be hardware calibrated.

I don't trust the basiccolor stuff. why? a friend of mine uses the software with the same monitor i got and his monitor is so off from what it should look like. tested it again and again. same result.

I've successfully calibrated a couple of P221s using basICColor display software and the DISCUS sensor. If something goes wrong it's usually a matter of sensor or target settings rather than software - there's a lot of crappy sensors out there, and - contrary to common expectations - the calibration doesn't have causative power, so the target settings should be matched to specific environmental conditions of our workspace.

found it. but which is the best?
basICColor DISCUS, but I expect i1display pro to be the most reasonable alternative. It will be supported by basICColor display 5 and next release of NEC Spectraview II software that will be available soon.

Might want to forgo spending any money on hardware until you see how well MultiProfiler works.

Sounds interesting, but unfortunately I have an P221 not an PA, so not for me.

Ops, sorry. In that case, if you only want a Colorimeter, the new i1D-3 (i1DisplayPro) should be shortly supported and that’s the instrument to get unless you also want to make printer profiles. Then ColorMunki or i1Pro, depending on budget would be next in line.

Yes, there will be hardware calibration support for P221W
