Great for NEC monitor

If you have an NEC monitor this is a great sensor. While you can get another brand sensor this one is designed specifically for NEC and works seamlessly with all their products and their tech support is excellent. It also works well with the new MacBook Pro (M1).

An excellent addition to any NEC monitor for accurate calibration and profiling. Takes full advantage of the built in lookup tables in the monitor, with a simple streamlined interface.

Easy to use color calibration sensor for my NEC monitors. They allow me to calibrate my screen for skin tones and so that I can see what images will look like on paper.

Great Calibration

I bought this calibration sensor to work with the latest version of NECs SpectraView II software. My old sensor was no longer supported by the new 64bit app. It is basically a rebranded X-Rite i1Display Pro. This sensor will not work with X-Rites software, nor can SpectraView II be used to calibrate non-NEC displays. For me this is no problem since I only use wide-gamut NEC displays for my photography work. The calibration with this sensor is spot on. For home use I print from Photoshop CC using a Canon Pro-100 and Canon Pro Platinum photo paper. Using this sensor and the Print Standard setting in SpectraView II (80.0 cd/m2) the color of my prints is excellent. I get the color that is on my screen. Of course, one never gets the same brightness and contrast as you get on the screen, but the color rendition is as good as I could hope for. I am very pleased. FYI... I do calibrate my MacBook Pro using the open source DisplayCAL. This software does support this sensor via ArgyllCMS and I imagine can be used to calibrate most any display with excellent results.

Designed for Nec & better than Xrite For NEC monitors. Xrite is overpriced anyway..

Excellent, but does not last...

Works great with my PA272W and the SpectraPro II software. The only issue with it is that the rubberized outer coating breaks down over time and turns to a gooey substance. Not ideal when putting it on your expensive monitor! Hopefully they change the material on newer SpectraSensor Pro sensors.

I have an older NEC PA302W monitor which is a great monitor, but my new MacBook Pro will not work with my 32-bit SpectraView. I have been told that this sensor would have newer software that would make my older monitor work with a 64-bit operating software (OS Catalina 10.15.3). Can anyone tell me if that is correct?? Thanks JH
Asked by: John B
Yes, this should work with an older NEC PA302W.

How does this compare with the X-Rite iOne Display Studio/Pro sensor? (NEC claims this one is custom calibrated for wide gamut displays, but not sure if that is just over-hyped advertising.)
Asked by: Michael
It has the same performance as the X-Rite but it is customized for the NEC SpectraView II software.
