I own a 3-year old 24-inch iMac, and I am using ColorMunki to calibrate my iMac now. I always find the iMac too bright for photo editing, even if I turn the brightness all the way down. So, I'm thinking of buying a NEC PA241W and hook it up to the iMac. Longer term, I also intend to get rid of the iMac and go with a MacBook Pro, so I would like to invest in a good monitor for the future.
1. Should I get the monitor without SpectraView and use my ColorMunki (both the hardware and its software) to calibrate both my iMac and the NEC monitor?
2. If I get SpectraView, I'll only be able to use it to calibrate the NEC monitor and not my iMac. It also appears that I have to make sure that the ColorMunki calibration software is not running. So, how do I calibrate both the NEC and iMac and have their display profiles loaded correctly? In other words, would I be able to use SpectraView and the bundled color sensor on my NEC, and then use my ColorMunki hardware and software to calibrate my iMac?
3. I have also read articles about using ColorMunki with SpectraView in this forum and elsewhere. My question #2 above remains. That is, after I'm done with my NEC using my ColorMunki and SpectraView software, can I then use ColorMunki hardware and software to calibrate my iMac?
Thanks in advance.
