It's $13 cheaper than the Spyder.

I got that exact one 2 days ago and it is fantastic.
I did it after researching for a while and finding out it was better than the Spyder, plus it lets me calibrate my Project too!

It also has flare screen calibration and ambient light calibration options.
Really great when you get it calibrated to your environment.
Regards


BTW This is an email from a Level 2 tech support on my questions about using or not using the Ambient light option etc .
Might benefit some other users

In an effort to resolve your support Case, the following comment has been added. Please review this comment, and respond as indicated.



Comment: I would recommend turning off “ADC” and not using the video LUTs to adjust brightness by opening the ColorMunki Display “Preferences” window with the ColorMunki plugged in. Follow these instructions to turn these functions off:
1. On PC…go to “File” and click on “Preferences”.
2. Uncheck “Achieve display luminance value using video LUTs” and “Enable ADC”. Select “White LED” for your Technology Type.
3. Click “OK” to save these settings and close the “Preferences” window.
4. Select “Profile My Display”.
5. When profiling, select the “Advanced” method and use D65 for the white point and select the bottom radio button to choose a target luminance of 120 cd/m2.
6. Uncheck both of the “Advanced Options” and click “Next”.

The recommended display profiling settings of a D65 white point, 2.2 gamma, and 120cd/m2 has been set by the industry experts. The photographers and graphic designers of the world have determined that a monitor profiled to these parameters will most closely match a print that is viewed in a 5000K light booth (Graphic arts standard). The default gamma (aka; tone response) is set at 2.2 in ColorMunki’s Preference menu found in “File” > “Preferences” from the home screen. We would recommend using the Advanced method and select the bottom option to set luminance to a specific level and then select “120”. If your prints are darker than your display, feel free to try a lower display luminance setting of 100, 90, or even 80.

Whenever you are making color-critical decisions on-screen (editing images), your room lighting should be quite dim. The recommendation is 32-64 lux...described as similar to when a movie theater dims their lighting for coming attractions. At 32 lux, it will be difficult to read a newspaper...but probably still can.

The following link will take you to our ColorMunki Display profiling training video:

I'd recommend ColorHug for monitor calibration if you don't mind using a Linux LiveCD/VM when calibrating. http://www.hughski.com/

Did anybody get hit with a customs notice?

I ordered an X-Star from dream-seller and received a customs notice for $21.50 from fedex a week later. I live on the U.S. west coast and thought when reading through the thread there were no customs fees to the U.S.?

Probably tax and $20 doesnt seem like much.

Usually you're not suppose to get customs fee, I didn't when I ordered mine. But for the people that do get customs fee, it seems that because they ordered from dream-seller and hes obviously doing something wrong when shipping it.

Once again, avoid dream-seller!!!
