Re: NEC 2490WUXi rocks! sRGB looks great.

I read all the posts in this thread, and there is still one thing
that isn't 100% clear for me. I think the NEC 2490WUXi makes possible
the calibration in sRGB mode using the 12 bits internal LUT. Is it
really the case??? It's not obvious from your last post, and I've
read conflicting things about that. I just don't want that profile
to be stored in the LUT on the graphics card.

The sRGB mode is not calibratable on either models (it's a factory preset). However since the 2490 is basically an sRGB gamut monitor, you can calibrate the monitor in it's Programmable mode to sRGB's white point and gamma, and it will result in a "calibrated sRGB monitor".

In other words, if the standard sRGB profile is used in the by XP,
does the calibration give good results? That would ensure that, when
switching to Linux, the calibration would remain the same and the
colors would be accurate for all applications.

If your applications in Linux are all assuming an sRGB monitor, then yes this would pretty much work, even though you aren't able to install a color profile on Linux.

One last thing way to put it.... I want to calibrate the monitor,
then connect it to a different computer and still have a calibrated
monitor which is accurate for sRGB. Is it too much to ask?

As long as you are using DVI (digital) video, then you can do this, since the calibration is stored in the display, not the video card. If you are using analog video you will have less accurate results.
