  • Well, if you had *actual experience* with a Spyder 5 as I now do, you might find that they are not as bad as you think. I'm not interested in a p***ing contest about the brands. I just wanted to OP ...
  • This might be too late since you said you are buying the i1DP 2 days ago. But, I though I would share my recent experience. I have the i1 DisplayPro and the i1 Pro spectrometer mainly for printer ...
  • I don't like the required phone home either. But Topaz's serial number system on their regular plugin's is a mess. Having to enter sn's for EACH plugin for EVERY host program (PS, Affinity, etc) ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    I can't figure out how to do a simple image rotation. I tried on some old Nikon D100 nefs that do not have orientation recorded into exif. Tried adding the base image as a duplicate layer and by ...
  • Are you running your 4k monitor at native res and, if so, are screen elements still big enough to see? There has been discussion on Luminance Landscape about large 4k monitors not working well on ...
  • I use to have an XL20, so I feel your pain. The only other software I know of that could access the monitor LUT's was ColorEyes Display Pro. Unfortunately, it and its company are also defunct. If ...
  • Yeah, I understand what you're saying. But, I have to say that my eyes like what this particular Spyder 5 is doing with good software. Just for giggles, would it be of value to validate with the ...
  • Andrew, I miss you on LL. I'm glad to see you here. As you might remember, we go way back on Compuserve. I have done two things recently that you might call heresy. I bought a Spyder 5, and am now ...
  • If you can get a NEC, by all means do so. I'm using a PA241 that is still perfect after 6.5 years and over 12000 hours of use. The best deal going right now is the BenQ SW2700PT. For $569 on ...
  • f you are not calibrating the current monitor, I would vote for the Spyder.Any new monitor you get will have the same need for calibration, particularly if it is a lower cost one. You can get a ...
  • I tried it briefly and did not have activation or the RAW problem. Nikon D800E nefs were properly recognized. The raw converter looks like an ACR clone, as does the editor to some degree. The ...
  • 2 out of a thousand. I use multiple profiles with Spectraview and my old-but-still-perfect PA241. The print-proof profiles are done by visual matching with a printer test target under my viewing ...
  • My experience with C1P is that folder sync doesn't work as it does in Lightroom. It will not import a subfolder as part of the sync. You need to use the import command to import the subfolder ...
  • I do that with an old Intuous 3 and a Logitech M510. No problems, unless you try to move them at the same time, of course. :-)
  • In that case, I agree with Andrew. I would go for the 2016 model or find a clean used one with 370X. I would not buy integrated graphics only. Lloyd
  • I've been using the 2015 rMBP 2.5Ghz 16GB 512GB model for the past year as my sole computer and it has been great. I think the 15" models all have discrete AMD graphic as well as integrated except ...
  • Replied in NEC monitor
    Please elaborate on why you have doubts about their warranty. I have a NEC PA241 that is 5.5 years old and is still giving me delta E's less than 1 using Spectraview II. This monitor is a warranty ...
  • I wasn't going for a refund but now am considering it. I've had a bad taste in my mouth about ON1 financing the alpha phase of development with the "pre-release". As someone else pointed out, this ...
  • I've been interested in the SW320 as well. I've been using a NEC PA241 for about 6 years and it is still going strong. But I would like a larger display. FWIW, I recently saw a b;urb in Pop Photo ...
  • They are having a "launch event" live tomorrow at 10 am PST. So, I believe that Dec. 19 just turned into Dec. 20. Naturally, I have an obligation then and won't be able to watch it live. :-(
