Absolutely driver this unit with their software (you can use your existing EyeOne). In fact, the entire kit includes the EyeOne Display-2 so use what you have, and just drop the $99 on the software.
I just purchased an NEC 2690. It's being driven by a MacPro.
Something very strange just happened:
The resolution of the monitor changed to 1600x1200 (supposed to be 1920x1200.)
No, this is not an issue of the wrong setting being chosen in System Prefs > Displays. I have 1920x1200 chosen there. It's the monitor itself. Upon start-up, it displays data showing resolution and frequency in the upper right corner. It says "1600x1200." I can confirm this by using the monitor's OSD and going to the info section where it says "1600x1200, 59.9Hz."
I've used it for about a week at the correct resolution. Any ideas what could have caused this change? And any idea how to get it back to 1920x1200? (And no, resetting to factory defaults doesn't do it.)
Thanks in advance.
Edit - One possibly important fact: This happened near the time that I launched a trial version of ColorEyes Pro (which I didn't get very far with.) Don't know if that's pertinent.
ColorEyes Pro is apparently not ready for 10.5.2. I removed all vestiges of ColorEyes from the machine, including preferences and start-up items, reset factory defaults on the NEC, and everything is back to normal. I'll wait for my copy of SpectraView to arrive.
The SpectraView software runs just fine and dandy under 10.5.2.
I can't imagine why you'd drive this fine display with anything but the SpectraView II software.
I have the monitor, but not the software (yet!) I anxiously await the delivery of my copy of SpectraView.
I have an nec 2090uxi that I purchased with the nec eye one calibrator. I print on an Epson 1800. My pictures come out a bit dark. Is there anything I can change in the nec eye one profile screen that will give me a bit darker screen. It would seem to be wrong to calibrate with eye one and then go in after it and adjust values on the monitor controls.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated since nec does not know anything about the software and I have not been able to raise a living person at eye one.
My immediate reaction would be to calibrate the paper/ink/printer combination. You don't mess with the monitor to make it look like your prints. It's the other way around.
Aside from what Ramón said (100% true), could it be that you have set the aimed luminance when calibrating a bit too high?
I have a Mac Pro lap top and a 22" LCD Monitor. To calibrate these I bought an Eye One Dispaly 2 (Xrite) from Adorama couple weeks ago for $205 including shipping.
I don't know how I'm suppose to get the program to select the 22" and not the lap top.
I'm realizing as I write this need to call the company that knows the soft ware. Who is that??
Macintosh or Windows?
