    NEC SVII-PRO-KIT reviews

    Color Sensor and SpectraView II Software Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SpectraView sensor and software 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product For NEC Monitors. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good kit, but it could be better Actually, it's a great product, but... It fits for those who don't want to collect all parts separately. In one hand it's good, but from another... Just look. Spectraview software is the best choice to calibrate NEC displays. It writes calibration data into internal display lookup table, not in your video card. So it makes calibration process more accurate and flexible. But, spectrasensor pro is actually specialized version of an x-rite i1 Dispay Pro sensor. In fact that its an OEM version, you can use this sensor only with NEC software, but not with x-rite programs. So, if you own only NEC display(s), it would be a good choice. But if you would like to calibrate some other devices, for example projector or CRT display, it will be a problem. Specialized OEM version of i1 Display Pro sensor limits the range of its capabilities. As for me, I used this kit with my NEC MultiSync 2090Uxi display. The calibration process is fast and easy. Colors has become much more vivid. On conclusion, I want to give an advice. Buy original x-rite i1 Display Pro sensor kit with x-rite software bundle (then you'll be able to calibrate what ever you want) and separately buy NEC's SpectraView software. It will work with x-rite sensor, just as it works with it's OEM sensor. You'll get all advantages of NEC's software and x-rite's hardware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy to use This calibration kit functions excellently for adjusting an NEC PA-series monitor. It is fast and easy to use, with no manual adjustment of monitor controls needed. The i1 Display Pro-based sensor initially needs more care to set up than the i1 Display 2; it projects out from the screen more than the older model (and also feels slightly lighter), and is thus less stable. After a few calibrations, I became used to setting it up quickly and effortlessly. The diffuser for measuring ambient light levels helps protect the sensor's optical element, and easily rotates out of the way for calibration; a good design, in my view. The software includes several test patterns to help check monitors for defects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very happy with this! I purchased this sensor and software kit with my new NEC MultiSync PA241w monitor wide gamut monitor. I researched several calibration setups and decided on this one. This sensor puck is specially adjusted for use with NEC's wide gamut monitors. The software works with the sensor in a user friendly and intuitive way. You can set up multiple calibrations for various applications. I'm currently using Windows XP Pro, but this setup will work fine under both 32 or 64 bit Windows 7. I plan to migrate to Windows 7 and wanted no problems when I do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product When I got the NEC MultiSync 2690WUXi2 screen I was looking for a solution that would give consistent results. The NEC color sensor (which is actually a specially calibrated Xrite sensor) and the SpectraView II software allow me to hardware calibrate my screen, instead of manipulating the LUT in the graphics card. In short, I've never had a better and more consistent color rendering. A must buy for owners of NEC screens that support hardware calibration inside the screen!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I bought a 2690 a year ago and knew I'd get this eventually. Just came in the mail and tried it out, here's my first impression (I'm driving it with a MacBook Pro I7): 1) WAY better than the normal 2690 color setting. 2) Only SLIGHTLY better when comparing to the Adobe 1998 color setting. You have to look REALLY close to see the difference. You can really tell in the bright oranges--Adobe 1998 is nuclear on my test image that has carrots and the NEC Spectraview is right on the money. So: If you're totally tight on money, just choosing the Adobe 1998 color setting might be the best bang for the buck (if you're also using a reasonably new Mac). Totally fine for great amateur work (cuz the 2690 is SO AWESOME). However, pros need this add on. Bottom line: if you make money with your images you need this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must addition to high end 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.
