I intend to buy a NEC PA 271W wide gamut display to use with a 13" MacBook Pro (2011 version, still to be purchased).http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/689882-REG/NEC_PA271W_BK_MultiSync_PA271W_BK_27_Widescreen.html
1. I heard the Spectraview II package gives excellent results on this screen. Only thing: it's based on the i1d2 (now discontinued) which gathered horrible results on Luminous Landscape's tests.
So, is the NEC version better? Or does is also contain degrading plastic filters?
2. When I called B&H I was recommended the Colormunki as the best option. But from what I heard: the software it comes with is very bad. And once you have it installed this software blocks all other calibration software, so I heard. Is there any way to use the Colormunki and the BasicColor software (which is basically the same as the Spectraview software, so I heard)? Is the Colormunki to be taken seriously, or is it an all over the place device that is sold to hobbyists in the first place and would not be appropriate for my photography business?
Which one of these options is the better one?
Your input is much appreciated.
