I'd like to thank everyone who responded to my post, especially MBeherns for the info on BasICColor 5 software and Andrew Rodney for pointing me to NEC's Multiprofiler. Oddly enough, the NEC Users Manual makes no mention of Multiprofiler. Maybe NEC is hoping that everyone will spring for the Spectraview package from the get go. At any rate, Multiprofiler and its Users Guide are free downloads from the NEC web site and are a tremendous help in understanding the capabilities and controls of this monitor. The download is highly recommended. The main issue with Multiprofiler, although easy and effective, is its efficacy over the age of the monitor. That is, at how many hours of usage does it become necessary to recalibrate using a colorimeter if at all? If anyone out there has used both over time I would appreciate your feedback.
