Edmund, why buy this expensive monitor and not take advantage of the hardware controls? They will do a much better job then trying to do this manually
If I had a *new* Eizo CG-series monitor land on my desk, I would just switch it to the sRGB preset, not bother to recalibrate and get on with my life. The Eizo people told me that the CG series is perfectly calibrated initially, indeed a graph is in the box with a certificate, and this will only drift due to backlight aging.
Whether this is true in practice I don't know - however, the art of color management is really one of managing expectations. When the user really wants perfection it becomes hell - calibrating my own monitors took me one month last year, and I'm now working again on a badly calibrated system because I reinstalled the OS. Interestingly I've already had a first calibration failure with an obsolete unnamed first-rank product made at the time by a big US-based company, that worked decently a year ago but which I never tested on my big screens. Maybe it's the colorimeter (which has been bundled with the excellent ColorEyes in its day) , maybe it's the software, who knows ?
And if you think I'm being cynical, ask yourselves why no monitor maker ever bundles calibrators in EVERY box. I don't think it's money - I think it's because there would be a HUGE number of calibration failures (due to cards, operating systems, bad monitor tolerances, user error) and it would be unmanageable. The way it runs now is that the user never notices how bad her color really is because every monitor in her office shows a different color.
