        Very simple and straight forward to use. Only complaint would be the ability to see the before and after of the calibration. Other than that great product!

                I use the Spectraview software with my new NEC 271PA W monitor and I'm very happy with the way it operates, the options and the ease of use.
                I think it is a must if you are going to get a NEC monitor. Probably a must for getting the best results editing photos.

                        This is a really nice addition to the NEC monitor. In fact, why own a NEC without this software? It is easy to set up and ran the program automatically. The only recommendation I would have is to run the program three or four times initially after the 30 minute monitor warm-up. Each time I ran the program, the specs got better on the monitor.

                                This sensor and software is excellent when used with an NEC high-res monitor. Mine is the PA27 inch. The propietary sensor is by X-Rite and the software works directly through the monitor as opposed to residing entirely on the hard drive. Full calibration takes about 5 minutes and the results are dramatically close to perfect. SpectraView also measures ambient light and thereby allows you to set up your workspace to conditions of 32 lumens or less.
                                I'm running Windows XP on a machine nearly 5 years old. Printer is Epson 3880. Prior to this monitor and software I calibrated a Samsung 23" with X-Rite Monaco. Very good results but this setup is better for sure.

                                  The SpectraSensor Pro is the best calibration system I ever used with my monitor. With that I got the NEC Monitor. It works great. The picture looks so much better than It looked with my old monitor. The SpectraSensor Pro Calibration System is a great product for NEC Monitors.

                                  I recently bought my NEC MultiSync PA241W-BK 24" Widescreen monitor without the Color Sensor and SpectraView II Software Kit. Big mistake. I sent my first print job using my new monitor to my professional printing lab. The prints I got back were a big disappointment. Under exposed, colors off enough to question if I'd made a mistake in investing in such an expensive monitor. After reading other review of the Spectra View Kit, I decided to risk making the additional investment. What a difference in the prints I got back from my lab. Dead on color and exposure. The kit is expensive but worth every cent knowing that now what I sent to my lab will return looking as close as a print can compare to what I see on the monitor. The Sensor and software are simple to use.

                                    I got this to with a NEC PA271W-BK. In the matter of minutes after installing my new monitor it was calibrated and ready to go. It even tells me when I need to recalibrate again. It is a must have with new wide gamut monitors from NEC. The color is spot on. What I see on my monitor is what I get from printer.

                                      Comments about NEC Color Sensor and SpectraView II Software Kit:

                                      I bought this bundle to calibrate my NEC PA 301W and NEC 2690WUXi2 as I'm a Lightroom and Photoshop user. The software and hardware installation is straight forward, the calibration process runs once started automaticly, also all settings and resets on the monitors are done by the software itself. The results of the calibration are excellent. SpectraView has a some nice features: A timer reminds you to recalibrate every 14 days, but only after 30 minutes of warm up time. The white point can be adjusted manually, for example if you want to fine tune a second monitor to the main one. Switching targets (like to sRGB emulation) is extremely easy and quick. Beside a good collection of preset targets own targets can also be setup easily.
                                      After some not so good experiences with another calibration setup I'm very happy I own this one now, for it's supreme results and ease to use. In my eyes a must for every NEC monitor that can be hardware calibrated.
                                      P.S.: a sixth star for B&H, who delivered to Germany within 2 days (!)
