I have a NEC PA241W monitor and have been playing with the calibration since november. At 6500K, it always had an annoying yellowish tin, mostly in the whites.
I reached perfect match with the prints by using the Custom White Point function in the Nec SpectraviewII software, then re-calibrated using the measures obtained. It seems a bit far from the standard 6500K target (7673K / cie x=0.3002, y=0.3024) but everything is spot-on.
This way, the white and colors on screen also matches all my other calibrated monitors, and both printed and on screen pictures look identical. My guess is that I it is the way to reach the right colors.
Is that the right way to do this ? Is it a monitor defect or it didn't finish it's "break-in" period of 100hours (around 80hrs so far)? Should I leave it at 6500K so other people who will bring their images would have the same target at home or it does not matter. I am a bit confused by this. My MacbookPro is spot on using 6500K with my X-Rite i1displayPro and I didn't have to tweak the white point like this.
Thanks for your inputs,
