NEC 2090uxi and Epson R1800 calibration

Having finally got around to getting a decent monitor I am now in the position where I want to calibrate my setup and get away from running umpteen test prints to get a half accurate match on paper of what I see on screen.

Unfortunately I know very little about printer/monitor profiling. What would be the best hardware/software combination for my hardware to get the best results from my setup (printing through Photoshop CS2 on top of Vista).

Any advice is much appreciated.

First, calibrate your screen with one of the mainstream calibration products such as Spyder (there's a raft of them and they're all good) then follow the instruction here .

Job done.

I Mike,

I realise that's what I need to do. My question was more is there is any monitor calibrator that is regarded as the best or whether I should get a combined monitor and printer kit rather than 2 seperate packages/devices.

I think I saw somewhere that the NEC doesn't work with certain devices or something?

Best to use separate kit for each device unless spending a lot of money.

The NEC is not good with a Spyder 2. Use an Eye One Display 2 or similar.
